OUR ACQUISITIONS AND INVESTMENTS STRATEGY – CAMSO
With its acquisition of Camso on July 12, 2018, Michelin strengthened its leadership position in the specialties business by creating the world leader in off-road mobility.
The new division, which reflects a major strategic partnership in off-road products, will be run from Quebec (Canada).
Camso, a designer, manufacturer and distributor of off-road mobility solutions since 1982, has annual turnover of $1.45 billion (USD). It is the leading player on several markets, including rubber tracks for farm equipment and snowmobiles, and the materials handling equipment market. Camso is also one of the top three players on the construction market, on both tracks and tires for small construction equipment.
This acquisition of Camso into the Michelin Group has created a new world leader in the off-road market with Michelin becoming the world’s largest tyre manufacturer raking #1 in 2020.
This strategic partnership, driven by shared values and a strong tradition of innovation and R&D and built on the strengths of expert teams, will make the new entity the world leader in off-road mobility.
Does Tyre Fill increase load carrying capacity?
No, tyre filling only replaced the air within a tyre. Load carrying capacity is derived from the tyre size and inflation pressure.
Can resilient (solid) tyres be fitted to all types of equipment?
Equipment wheels with removable flanges or lock rings can usually accomodate resilient (solid rubber) tyres. There are a number of options and Bearcat can also manufacture rims to suit a solid tyre fitment.
What is the difference between a white non marking tyre and grey non marking tyre?
Both grey and white tyres are manufactured to basically stop black marks on clean floors. Depending on the brand the tyre can be white or grey but they both serve the same purpose.
Which tyres can be puncture proofed using tyre fill?
Any off-highway tyres on vehicles which will never exceed 60 kph can be filled. A range of different compounds can be used promoting a softer ride or a heavy duty resistance.
What are the benefits of smooth forklift tyres?
Depending on the application – smooth tyres tend to last longer. The flat surface can also help with stability when carrying extreme loads. More footprint also can assist lower rolling resistance and less tyre fatigue.
How was rubber discovered?
The origins are traced back to 1770 when an English chemist named Joseph Priestly found a material in which he could remove pencil marks from paper. He called it “rubber”.
