PRINX Europe Unveils Groundbreaking Innovations at Tire Cologne

PRINX Europe is set to make a significant impact at the upcoming Tire Cologne exhibition, showcasing a comprehensive array of new products. The Darmstadt-based tyre manufacturer will present cutting-edge ultra-high-performance (UHP) tyres for passenger cars, studded models, commercial vehicle tyres, and a newly announced alliance with retreading company Marangoni.

From 4 to 6 June, PRINX Europe will display the latest additions to its portfolio over an expansive 250 square metre area in Hall 8, Stand C 038/D 039. Highlights include a complete overhaul of the UHP tyre range for SUVs and cars, alongside the introduction of a van tyre and new developments tailored for the Scandinavian market. Notably, the Nordic tyres for cars and trucks will be available in both studded and studless versions, marking their global debut in Cologne.

The exhibition will also feature the world premiere of the UHP winter tyre series, designed for car and SUV drivers in the moderate European climate. Targeting upmarket, modern sports cars, these tyres will be showcased under the Austone, Fortune, and Chengshan brands.

Among the debutants at Tire Cologne are the Aquila Rev summer tyres and the Vanea 4S all-season van tyre. These models will be exhibited to the public for the first time, having previously been accessible only to press representatives and business partners. The Vanea 4S, PRINX Europe’s first pure van model under its premium PRINX brand, boasts impressive handling and performance, verified by rigorous testing. It will be available in 21 dimensions.

The PRINX Aquila Rev summer tyre, another highlight, is a UHP tyre designed for SUVs and passenger cars. It aims to meet the needs of demanding, sporty drivers and has demonstrated near top-tier performance in dry and wet braking tests on a Spanish test track.

In a strategic move to enhance its presence in the lorry sector, PRINX Europe has forged a cooperation with Marangoni, a leading European manufacturer of retreading materials. Managing Director Thomas Wohlgemuth envisions this partnership as a catalyst for new opportunities in the commercial vehicle tyre market. The collaboration aims to significantly extend the service life of commercial vehicle tyres, thereby reducing their CO2 footprint. Marangoni will also handle the distribution of the Austone brand across Italy, Germany, and other European markets.

"With the close collaboration with Marangoni, we and our customers will have completely different options in the future," said Wohlgemuth, hinting at the transformative potential of this alliance.

Adrian Costache, Head of Sales at PRINX Europe, echoed this enthusiasm, stating, "Tire Cologne is a fantastic opportunity to experience our latest innovations first-hand and discover a range of ground-breaking solutions that are setting new standards in the industry." Costache looks forward to sharing insights, discussing industry trends, and demonstrating how PRINX Europe’s products can propel business growth.
