Magog, Québec, January 5, 2015 - Camoplast Solideal launches three new skid steer tires bringing improved performance, durability and cost savings to its premium Solideal SKS tire lines.

The decision to launch multiple products simultaneously for the compact construction equipment industry shows the company’s commitment to providing the best off-the-road mobility solutions for the construction industry. Through extensive market research, Camoplast Solideal understands that tires are a major factor in the performance and operational cost of a skid steer fleet.

“We are the specialists in compact construction equipment. We bring value to business owners by helping reduce the operational cost of their vehicles by providing the right tire for the right application at the right time,” said Bob Bulger, Vice President and General Manager – Construction at Camoplast Solideal. “Our new Solideal SKS line covers more applications and surface types and therefore, a broader range of needs for our clients,” adds Bulger.

The new Premium Solideal SKS tire line-up includes:

  • The Solideal SKS 732: a pneumatic skid steer tire that sets the standard for long life and traction in soft soils and off-road service
  • The Solideal SKS 775: a severe-duty pneumatic tire providing superior performance on mixed and hard surfaces such as packed gravel and paved yards
  • The Solideal SKS 793S: a flat-proof solid rubber tire developed to enhance tire performance, durability and ride comfort on mixed and hard surfaces

The pneumatic tires, Solideal SKS 732 and Solideal 775, feature a unique reverse sidewall profile to help deflect debris away from the tire. This also serves to improve side impact resistance. Increased tread depth and the use of a premium long-wearing rubber compound further enhance durability providing for a lower operating cost solution.

The newest solid tire solution, the Solideal SKS 793S introduces a new versatile tread pattern and an improved aperture design that enhances ride quality without compromising the tire’s strength.

The new Solideal SKS line-up was created through the collaboration Camoplast Solideal’s R&D facilities in North America, Europe and Asia.

Camoplast Solideal announces "Drive for the cure" campaign

February 2012– Camoplast Solideal recently announced the launch of the "Drive for the Cure” campaign during this year's MODEX Show in Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta to support the fight against gastrointestinal and pancreatic cancer cause.

Camoplast Solideal designed a limited edition of its high performance Poly tire to support the cause. This special product has the novelty of highlighting the emblematic purple color of the fight against gastrointestinal and pancreatic cancer cause.  The tire will be available in top sizes of premium 90 durometer compound, designed for long runs and multi-shift operations, suitable for most class 2 operations, and used by top OEM. 

 “This tire is one our great products. It is cut and chunk resistant and provides a smoother ride and reduces downtime. We thought it would be a winning idea for everyone if we offer our client this quality incentive which is also design to save lives” said David Fleischhauer, Director of Product Management at Camoplast Solideal.

The Limited Edition "Drive for the Cure” Purple tire will be available in the US during the month of April 2012 among Camoplast Solideal dealer network and service centers. To support the campaign, the company developed merchandising and a series of postcards with cancer survivor testimonials from the material handling industry. In addition, Camoplast Solideal employees will also support the campaign by proudly wearing “Drive for the Cure” T-Shirts and help fundraise for the cause.

Through its "Drive for the Cure" campaign, Camoplast Solideal makes a donation of 50% of the profits for every purple tire sold during the campaign month to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, with a committed minimum donation of $5,000. 

"This is a more visible way to support Camoplast Solideal’s Drive for the Cure campaign to benefit the activities of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network,” said Mr. Bob Bulger, Vice President Americas Region for Camoplast Solideal.  “We are delighted to be able to present this limited edition to reinforce our commitment to supporting cancer cure research".
