Vipal in North America
Boasting a global presence, Vipal recently redirected one of its three production plants in Brazil to focus purely on export productions. Furthermore, in order to meet growing export demands, in 2013 it inaugurated its third Distribution Center in the United States. Located in Los Angeles, California, the Center has a storage capacity of 1,500 pallet positions, thereby covering the entire North American West Coast, in addition to certain central states and the West and Central regions of Canada. Still within the US, the world’s largest tire retread market, the company also has a branch office.
In Mexico, Vipal raised its flag in 2004. It counts with a Distribution Center and Branch Office, in addition to a permanent regional team and a 14-member strong authorized network.
