New Head of R&D for Marangoni Tyre

(Clacton, U.K./Tyres & Accessories) Marangoni Tyre has announced that Piero Torassa is set to head up its R&D department as research and development manager.

Torassa, a familiar figure in the global tyre industry, has worked closely with Marangoni’s global customer base for over three years and will play a vital role in further developing the European manufacturer’s product portfolio, according to the company.

Commenting on the promotion, Piero Torassa said, “This is a massive opportunity. Research and development has been a critical element of our success over recent years and has allowed the company to launch new products, which excel in the market. Our exploits in motorsport have provided fantastic performance results, which have been directly translated into our everyday tyre technologies. In addition, a great deal of time is spent in the laboratory, working with the rubber compounds and tread patterns to ensure performance is optimised with ultimate ride comfort."

Torassa insists that motorsports activity will continue to play a critical role in providing his team with the data and results required to push Marangoni’s technologies to the next level.
