MIAMI (April 11, 2016) — International tire distributor Zafco Trading L.L.C. is preparing to launch distribution of Amstrong-brand truck tires to customers in North America, nearly four years after acquiring rights to the brand from Pirelli Tyre S.p.A.
Zafco recently announced the launch of a dedicated website run by Armstrong Tire Co., a separate sales company in Miami.
Carl Casalbore, who left Zafco in 2013 to work with BKT Tires USA Inc., was re-hired last year by Zafco to head up the Armstrong business.
The brand is being relaunched with eight fitments:
- ASH, ASR and ASR1 steer-axle tires for long-haul, pick-up/delivery and regional applications;
- ADH, ADR and ADR1 drive-axle tires for long-haul, pick-up/delivery and regional applications; and
- ATH and A0M trailer tires for long-haul and mixed-service applications.
