From far and wide
“The range and choice of tyres available to buyers at Tyrexpo Africa 2014 will be unparalleled at a single event in South Africa,” says Paul Farrant, managing director of show organiser, ECI International, as he boasts about the event.
“Local dealers and fleet owners looking to add new brands to their portfolios will have the widest selection of well-respected manufacturers from South Africa and across the world.”
One such supplier will be German wholesaler BaRo GmbH, that is looking to extend its reach in Africa and will be making its first appearance at the show. BaRo is particularly strong in the truck and bus radial tyre sector, distributing the TyRex, Antyre, Cordiant, Fullrun, Falken and Kama brands for commercial users. In the agricultural sector it supplies Belshina, BKT, Mitas, Rosava and TyRex products.
Another European wholesaler, HBI Tyres & Wheels from the Netherlands, produces retreads under the private brand Bandenmarkt for agricultural machinery, excavators, dump trucks, port handling equipment, earthmoving and mining machinery. HBI is also the international wholesaler of the Delcora, EuroGrip, Tianli, Petlas and Linglong ranges of new tyres for agricultural and heavy duty off-the-road (OTR) applications.
The show will also play host to many other familiar names including: Beltyre Africa, Stamford Tyres, Richards Bay Tyres, Leaderquip, Leader Rubber, Rema Tip Top, Wheelquip and Nitralife.
Tyrexpo Africa 2014 takes place from March 4 to 6, at the Sandton Convention Centre.
