Trelleborg Wheel Systems Industrial Tires and NACCO Materials Handling Group (NMHG) have partnered to supply the EMEA region with replacement industrial tyres. Under the agreement, Trelleborg is now NMHG's preferred and approved supplier for replacement tyres for Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and will work with the region's Nacco equipment dealers to ensure Nacco customers receive "the very best tyres and fitting service available". Elio Bartoli, European director for Trelleborg Wheel Systems, says the company will deliver value for Nacco dealers and its customers. "Both our businesses are global leaders and together we have created a strong proposition from which dealers and customers will benefit." Replacement fitting services will be conducted by Interfit, Trelleborg's service brand, Bartoli says. "Our Interfit service concept is unique in the market; we built Interfit to offer forklift producers and their dealers a service designed around their needs and to deliver value." Trelleborg Wheel Systems is also a major supplier to NMHG at OEM level globally and operates an aftermarket tyre program in the US. Its 2012 sales totalled EUR443 million (USD580 million). It has 2391 employees and six factories around the world. NMHG produces materials handling equipment under the Hyster, Yale and UTILEV brands.
