Bergey's Tire Service entertained, educated and fed over 150 of their Fleet customers at a Grand Opening at their newly remodeled Perkasie, PA Retread Technologies plant, Friday, May 11th. 

Bergey's spent the last six months remodeling the Perkasie plant to improve quality, efficiency and to upgrade their equipment to the latest Marangoni retreading technology.
New state of the art equipment, from inspection to curing, include the addition of the Marangoni ITT Sfera Shearographic inspection machine, a Marangoni 2500 buffer, the latest in building technology in the Marangoni RINGBUILDER 3000, the modular AZ cushion extruder and builder combination, and the latest Cure-Tech curing chambers.

Improved lighting, reflective floors, the re-designed monorail system contributed to showcase the production area.  Plant tours were enhanced by the use of a headset system that aided participants in learning the finer points of the retreading process while the plant remained in operation.   
Each tour finished in an area set up with a display of the RINGTREAD® designs, a video of the Marangoni Alpha-Ring manufacturing plant to show how the RINGTREAD® itself is manufactured and to drive home the benefits of the RINGTREAD® to the fleet owners and managers. 
A new demonstration showing the benefits of the RINGTREAD®'s double radius fitment finished off the tour.  Start to finish education for all who attended.

It was a well organized event with the whole “Bergey Team”  on site to be sure their guests left with a better understanding of  Bergey's commitment to serving their customers with state of the art technology and the best products in the market.
Duane Bergey, President, Bergey Tire comments; “With 50 years retreading experience and expertise, we recognize the RINGTREAD® technology as the most advanced retreading technology in the world.  We have been producing the RINGTREAD® for six years at our plant in Perkasie, PA. and it continuously distinguishes us from our competitors. We are totally committed to serving our fleet customers with the best products and services possible and I think this new plant shows how far we will go to reduce their costs and help them be successful.”
