More Heritage

Sustainable Retreading Since 1971

In 1971 our journey began with a small operation recycling truck tyres for the local market. Buying rubber from Malaysia and with expertise learnt in the Far East, the company started retreading in South Devon, UK.

Our range has continued to evolve and after 50 years Bandvulc attributes its success to listening to its customers and developing new and innovative tyre solutions for their fleet operations.  

With continuous investment in time, people and technology we have developed a sound reputation for quality products, safety and sustainability which were the foundation of the business back in 1971 and still remain our core strategy as part of the Continental tyre group today. 

Our Retreading Journey


Find out what’s happened since by viewing our news section.


Our production facility hits a record 4,000 tyres being produced per week. With our ethos still on reducing its impact on the environment, investment was made in updating our casing handling system to further improve recyclability.

In 2016 the Bandvulc Group was acquired by Continental group holdings, further strengthening its position as Britain’s leading UK commercial retreader for truck, LGV and commercial vehicle tyres.


Our B2K trailer tyre was launched and quickly became a bestseller in our portfolio. BTC (Bandvulc Tyre Contracts) was launched providing 24/7/365 tyre support for our blue chip customer base. Following years of investment into processes and people, the Tyre Support Unit is renowned for tyre expertise and customer service excellence. Following the acquisition by Continental in 2016, the team has grown and evolved and now operates as Conti360° Solutions.

In 2006 the our BIG tyre range was launched for local fleets and tipper operations.

We added 2 tyre patterns to its long haul tyre range, the BD08 and BT08. Designed for high mileage haulage operations the tyres were instantly popular with our retail customer base and continue to perform in today’s market.


The 90’s saw the launch of our Wastemaster range. Still a proven market leader in the waste industry, the Wastemaster tyre has evolved over the last 20 years to provide a high performing, sustainable solution to waste fleets across the UK and in Europe.


Our product sales continued to grow and a nationwide delivery network was established across the UK. Our knowledge of rubber technology lead to the evolution of an in-house rubber compounding plant to produce rubber solely for our range.


Our retreading began with manufacturing tyres for local operations and tipper fleets. As the demand grew, we invested in purpose built premises in Ivybridge, which is still the heart of the retreading operation today.
