Apollo Tyres opens first Apollo Retread Zone outlet in Karnataka

Apollo Retread Zone outlet in Karnataka

The coastal region of Karnataka has a huge retreading potential and this, in turn, has given Apollo Tyres a good reason to open its first Apollo Retread Zone (ARZ) in the state. The recently-established ARZ outlet is situated at Manipal.

According to the tyre manufacturer, truck/bus radials can be retreaded at only 25-27% cost and provide around 90% mileage of new tyres. Also, tyres are capable of being retreaded multiple times.

Satish Sharma, President, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa, Apollo Tyres Ltd, said, “In this part of coastal Karnataka, the passenger movement is very high. In any case, the retread potential is high in this part of the state. What is contributing to this growth is use of public transport by people.”

This ARZ is the fourth official outlet in the country and the said objective is to target truck/bus customers and fleet owners to provide quality service. Before the initiative was taken by Apollo Tyres, the retreading industry was primitive. However, the ARZ outlets, being advanced, are equiped with retreading machines, high-quality tread material and trained workers.

The increased usage of radial tyres in trucks, buses and taxi fleet has raised the potential for retreading and therefore, there was a need for quality retreading outlets. Apollo Tyres will not only provide infrastructural support to these retreading outlets but will also give proper training to the employees of the ARZ at its state-of-the-art Retread Research and Training Centre in Chennai.

Due to the rising demand for quality retread and the scarcity of supply in the country, the Indian tyre marque is looking forward to open 20 ARZ branded retread outlets across the country by the end of this financial year.

Due to the huge retreading potential in Karnataka, the company is targeting to have ARZ outlets in Bangalore, Shivamogga, Hubballi and Belagavi.

Apollo Tyres started the chain of ARZ outlets last year and the first three outlets were opened in Jaipur, Chennai, and Mumbai.
