Kargro Banden

Kargro Banden Selects and approves demounted commercial truck tires from tire specialists and transport companies. The company purchases casings that are suitable for retreading.


Lintire specialises in collecting used passenger car tires from specialists and re-trades them after a thorough quality check.

Tyre Plan Europe

Tyre Plan Europe is the retreading division of the group. All approved casings by the group go through its factories in order to be retreaded with the Bandag, UBO or Marangoni process.

Kargro Recycling

Kargro Recycling receives scrap tires from Lintire and Kargro Banden for processing. Kargro Recycling subsequently processes scrap tires into granulates and fine powders, which are reused in various applications. In addition, high-quality steel from tires is recovered and sold to iron smelters.
