M.T.N.A . recently hired two new region sales managers. Doug Edwardsen will be responsible for the newly established Central Region and Don Hunkeapillar will be responsible for the Southeast Region, replacing Marge Connors.

Doug Edwardsen, a former Bandag Executive, has worked in the Tire and Retreading industry in the U.S. and Canada for over 25 years.  Doug has extensive experience in the distribution and development of Fleet and Dealer Sales.  “It’s not often you have the benefit to come to work for a company that is so energized by it’s opportunities. I am very happy to be part of the M.T.N.A. team and have already witnessed that the Fleet customers identify the RINGTREAD® as a differentiated product and recognize the benefits it does/could bring to them. The RINGTREAD® Dealers in the Central Region are positioned for growth and I have several prospects interested in joining the network.”  Doug will reside in Madison, WI.

Don Hunkeapillar will be responsible for the Southeast Region, residing in Cullman, AL.  Don has 20 years experience in the Tire and Retreading industry having worked for McGriff Industries, one of the largest U.S. independent tire dealers and most recently with T.C.I., as a Region Manager in charge of 6 commercial stores and 2 retread plants in Alabama and Mississippi. “I believe the independent dealer has more opportunity today than ever before going to market, controlling his destiny and profitability.  Manufacturers try to control so much of the distribution today that it tends to impede good business as opposed to foster it. The Alpha-RING manufacturing process is far superior to anything in the market today and the RINGTREAD® quality and performance is better than anything I’ve ever sold.  I’m excited to help the Southeast RINGTREAD® Dealers increase their Fleet business and to bring on new RINGTREAD® distribution in the Southeast.” 

Marangoni S.p.A. is a worldwide leader in retreading technology and systems.  Marangoni Tread N.A. distributes its premium retread product RINGTREAD® through a network of RINGTREAD® Dealers across North America.  RINGTREAD® is one, contoured piece of precure tread that excels in mileage, reliability and wear characteristics. The contour of the RINGTREAD® is designed to match the natural curvature of a casing to maintain balance, cool running and even wear. RINGTREAD® is available in multiple tread designs, based on application demands, for optimum performance. The revolutionary process of eliminating the tread splice in precure treads eliminates a weak spot, a heavy spot and likely place for contamination leading to failure. RINGTREAD® has been manufactured and distributed in Europe, by Marangoni® since 1976.
