Camso expanded its range of OTR Tyres in Atlanta

United States: Camso Inc. showcased its advance portfolio of telehandler tyres, namely, the Camso TLH 732 and the Camso TLH 753, at the renowned, The Rental Show in Atlanta, which was hosted by the American Rental Association on 24th Feb. 2016.


As per the Executive Director (Market Development – Construction, Camso Inc.), David Fleischhauer, the tyres were launched eventually after the extensive customer research, scrap pile analysis and on field surveys, specific to equipment rental businesses in the country. He further stated that the company also conducted its own scrap pile analysis wherein, the company got to know that almost 27% of discarded tyres depicted significant damage only to the tread or sidewalls. So, to enhance the sidewall protection, the company developed an impact guard, basically, to deflect debris, along with protecting sidewalls and reduce cracking under stress of a tyre.


The company, formerly known as Camoplast Solideal, also presented three newly introduced skid steer loader tyres, i.e. the Camso SKS 732, SKS 775 and SKS 793S as well as a solid telehandler tyre designed with triangular apertures to improve ride quality, by the name, the Camso TLH 792S at the event.


The recent report published by TechSci Research, “United States Tyre Market Forecast and Opportunities, 2020” represents the potential of expanding automotive sector in the country. Moreover, United Sates have one of the highest motorization rate of almost 790 vehicles (per 1,000 people) in the entire world. Factors such as increasing national disposable income due to strengthening USD, falling oil & food prices, rising standard of living along with sectorial growth of construction, infrastructural and industrial sectors are resulting in a hastening demand for OTR vehicles in the US, consequent to which, OTR tyre sales are increasing in the country.


As per TechSci Research, the recently launched OTR tyres by Camso, would highlight the company’s presence in US OTR tyre industry, as the company would able to cater the demand of OTR customers at a significant level. Moreover, with the advance technological specifications introduced in the tyres, the company would also give a tough competition to other OTR tyre manufacturers existing in the country.
