TRC is driven by its 4r vision of Repair, Reuse, Recycle, and Repurpose. TRC broadened that vision through the acquisition of Salvadori Srl. Salvadori are experts in recycling equipment and also design and manufacture innovative, high quality tools and materials used in the global tyre & wheel repair industry. This has been aligned with TRC’s Tyre & Wheel legacy brand, TECH.

The Salvadori team will now align with TECH’s European, Middle East & African (EMEA) Tyre and Wheel group and will continue to design, engineer and manufacture high quality tyre and wheel speciality tools and equipment.

One such tool, the Salvadori Rubber Extruder Gun, is considered the “Gold Standard” within the tyre and wheel industry. The Salvadori extruder gun is used globally on section repairs conducted on commercial truck tyres and off the road (OTR) tyres. The extruder gun is also widely used in the tyre retreading market.

According to TECH University Senior Technical Trainer, Bill Johnson, “The Salvadori extruder gun provides the high-volume flow tyre technicians need to smoothly apply rubber to the injury. The power generated by the proprietary Salvadori dive system maintains a high flow that makes for a smoother repair and minimises the time required by the technician to perform the repair.”

Salvadori and TECH help to fulfil parent brand TRC’s 4r vision of Repair, Reuse, Recycle, and Repurpose. The innovative solutions that the TRC companies provide make a meaningful impact both financially and ecologically. To learn more about TRC and its brands visit
