Retreading Technology

We are renowned for being an industry leader in the fields of concept, design and innovation for truck tyre retreading solutions. Over the past 50 years we have developed an extensive range of specialist retread products, in house, to suit the ever increasing demands of our customers and their bespoke vehicle specifications.

We are fully committed to the exciting opportunities of the future by taking full advantage of technical advances and the latest technology available. This allows us to continue to rapidly respond to market demands with a bespoke, certified retread product, manufactured in the UK.

The digital revolution continues at pace and paves the way for interoperability of equipment, software and solutions. Across all areas of our business not just manufacturing, we are embracing the power of data collection and connectivity providing a complete tyre management solution for your vehicle and fleet needs.  Our tyre management software allows us to seamlessly manage the tyre support requirements of some of the UK’s most prestigious fleets providing 24/7 roadside assistance as well as key performance data such as tyre condition reports, spend and activity reporting and fleet data and analytics.

We recognise the role our tyre experts play in our continued success in a rapidly changing world. Below are some insights into the day-to-day projects and innovations which have kept Bandvulc at the forefront of retreading technology for 50 years.

Shane Frith

Engineering Manager

“Automation in manufacturing is a key concept that is continuously evolving for Bandvulc; bringing improved efficiencies, quality and further innovation to our products and services. By utilising decades of retreading engineering and technical knowledge, paired with expertise from our parent company, Continental, we can provide automated solutions for a bespoke manufacturing process.

Innovation is a key part of our success and our heritage. Our cutting-edge robotic solutions provide an unrivalled level of process control and efficiency that ensures quality throughout the process and provides our customers increased added value benefits.

Fully embracing technological developments allows us to visualize new concepts and re-write the manufacturing rules. Smart technology and digital integration open new opportunities and a freedom to act ethos enables new ideas to be tabled and developed from concept through to industrialisation.”

Magdalena Humphreys

Operations Manager and IT

“Technology has always been at the heart of Bandvulc’s success. Throughout my day to day responsibilities I see first-hand how through continuous innovation of our systems and evaluating processes, our teams keep Bandvulc at the forefront of retreading technology.

The most enjoyable and rewarding aspect of my role is working with dynamic, enthusiastic and hardworking colleagues. The “for one another” approach enables us to collectively and individually manage tasks and effectively problem solve in order to overcome challenges, driving the company forward to achieve its goals.”

Justin Holloway

Quality & Environmental Manager

“As the Quality and Environmental Manager at Bandvulc, it’s great to be able to trust in the passion and dedication Bandvulc staff have to get the job done, across the whole plant, to exemplary standards.

“Quality first” will continue to be a core philosophy, not only for our tyre production but also for our renowned customer service. As a proud member of the BTMA Retread Group I am working on exciting projects to ensure that future legislations are tabled which aim to benefit not only the retreading industry as a whole, but our planet as well.

Bandvulc’s quest to protect the environment through sustainable retreading is part of our core ethos and we will always ’go the extra mile’ to ensure we are protecting the environment for future generations.”
