Spreading its network further
for branded retreading outlets, Apollo Tyres has inaugurated its 3rd Apollo
Retread Zone (ARZ) in Mumbai, in the western part of India. Rajesh Dahiya,
Group Head, Sales-APMEA (Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa), Apollo Tyres
Ltd inaugurated the outlet in Turbhe, Navi Mumbai. The outlet will be providing
quality retreading service to truck-bus customers and fleet owners. These
branded outlets are equipped with most advanced retreading machines, high
quality tread material and trained workers, stated a press release issued by
Commenting on the network
expansion, Satish Sharma, President, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa,
Apollo Tyres Ltd said, “As a dominant player in the commercial vehicle segment,
especially in India, we are committed to providing 360 degree solution to our
customers, which very much includes retreading as well, to enhance the tyre
life of the end-user. The increase in usage of radial tyres in the truck-bus
segment, has increased the potential for retreading, and thereby the need for
more such quality retreading outlets to service our customers.”
In addition to providing
infrastructural support for these retreading outlets, Apollo Tyres also trains
the employees of ARZ at its state-of-the-art Retread Research and Training
Centre in Chennai. Seeing the demand for quality retread, which is not widely
available in the country, the company is targeting to have 20 branded retread
outlets by the end of this fiscal for a pan-India presence.
All truck-bus radials are
capable of multiple retreads due to the strong carcass, and each retread costs
only 25-27 pc of the cost of a new tyre, while providing nearly 90pc of the
mileage of a new tyre. Once the domain of the unorganised world, the retreading
industry in India is now gradually getting more and more organised. The
customers are opting for multiple retreads on their tyres, and prefer the same
to be done by the tyre manufacturers, instead of unorganised players. Apollo
Tyres started with its ARZs in 2014; the first two outlets were opened in
Jaipur and Chennai.
