TRELLEBORG, Sweden (July 27, 2015) — Trelleborg Wheel Systems S.p.A. recently took home the prize for “Best Agricultural Tire” at the O Prêmio VisãoAgro Sudeste Awards in Brazil.
Awarded by Arnaldo Jardim, the agriculture secretary of São Paulo, Trelleborg said the accolade recognized the performance of its agricultural tires used in the sugar cane industry in Brazil's south-eastern region.
The VisãoAgro Sudeste Awards recognize mills, distilleries and product manufacturers that have excelled in the areas of processing and production in the sugar cane industry. Companies are selected following research conducted by AR Enterprises, GEGIS and the Journal of Vision Agribusiness, according to Trelleborg.
Piero Mancinelli, R&D director for agricultural and forestry tires at Trelleborg Wheel Systems, called the company's receiving the VisãoAgro Sudeste award “an exceptional achievement and is testament to Trelleborg's commitment to continually developing innovative solutions that improve the efficiency, productivity and sustainability of future farming.”
Trelleborg claims its 710/70R38 TM800 SugarCane agricultural tire, designed specifically for sugar cane applications, “can cope effectively with sugar cane stubble, while the profile of the tire lug's base is significantly smoother and more rounded in comparison to a conventional tractor tire.”
