Denis Piccolo, BKT’s Product Manager, has been appointed Chairman of the agriculture sub-committee of the European Tyre and Rim Technical Organisation (E.T.R.T.O.). He will play a key role in coordinating the group’s activities related to agricultural tires inside this organisation.
The E.T.R.T.O. is an organisation consisting of manufacturers of tires, rims and valves for vehicles of all kinds. It aims to harmonize the sizes and dimensions of tires, thus avoiding any ambiguity.
The organisation has the key role of establishing common technical sizes, load and pressure characteristics, and a single set of operational guidelines to help end users choose the right product for their needs.
Denis Piccolo has represented BKT at E.T.R.T.O. for a long time and this appointment recognises his constant commitment on topics regarding the development of agricultural tires and their corresponding regulation and safety. “I am proud of being appointed” Denis Piccolo states, “I will fulfill my duty with utmost commitment.”
This appointment also confirms the BKT’s increasing weight on markets around the world, especially in Europe. This is a prestigious recognition which rewards the efforts of the Indian Off-Highway tire manufacturing Group in terms of quality, innovation, providing concrete responses to customer needs and focusing on their requirements.
Denis Piccolo thus has the task of consolidating the position and official feedback from E.T.R.T.O. on requests regarding agricultural tires. He is also responsible for the data published in the Technical Manual (Standard Manual) and in the so-called Engineering Design Information, which contain E.T.R.T.O.’s official indications on the agricultural sector.
