Established in 1950, Vaculug stands as Europe’s largest independent retreader producing high quality OTR and Truck retread tyres for fleets across the UK and Europe, whilst offering effective and practical fleet management solutions for customers.

Our HQ is adjacent to our manufacturing facility on a 12-acre site in Grantham, Lincolnshire, with additional offices in London and Leicester.  

We continually demonstrate our commitment to creating a sustainable future by embracing environmentally friendly practices. Through innovation, technological advancement, and a profound sense of environmental responsibility, we have not only solidified our position as a key player but have also set new standards for sustainability in the tyre industry.

Leaders in Sustainability

Our journey to sustainability started in its infancy with the adoption of the retreading process itself. Instead of discarding old tyres, we began a process of retreading them to extend their lifespan and reduce the demand for raw materials whilst minimising the impact on the environment.

Environmental Responsibility

As the tyre industry evolved and the number of new tyres in the market increased, we continued to demonstrate sustainable practices in retreading. We take a holistic approach to environmental responsibility by optimising energy consumption, recycling waste truck tyres and implementing energy saving initiatives across the organisation.

Our Vision

We want to make the world more sustainable for future generations.

Our Mission

Our mission is to build a responsible and prosperous business that creates shared value for our surrounding communities, near and far. We do so by respecting the planet, supporting our communities, innovating our offerings and services for our customers, and by fostering a family-like culture for our people.

Together our vision and mission are driven by our fervent belief that our business serves to drive the important work we are doing with our charity, the Zenises foundation. By building a responsible and prosperous business, we are fuelling our efforts to make a positive impact for our surrounding communities, and for our planet.

Vaculug first began in 1950, just after WWII. Production began using the Vaculug process and after a short time, an increase in demand saw the closure of the site in Great Ponton and the opening of a larger plant in Gonerby, Grantham. The process incorporated various sectors of the industry – car, truck, tractor, and earthmover.
