Denis Piccolo, BKT product manager, has been appointed chairman of the European Tyre and Rim Technical Organisation (E.T.R.T.O.) agriculture sub-committee.
The E.T.R.T.O. is an organisation consisting of manufacturers of tyres, rims and valves for vehicles of all kinds and aims to harmonise the size and dimensions to avoid ambiguity. It has a key role of establishing common technical sizes, load and pressure characteristics and a single set of operation guidelines.
Mr Piccolo has represented BKT within the organisation for a long time and his appointment is said to recognise his commitment on topics regarding the development of agricultural tyres, and the corresponding regulation and safety.
“I am proud of being appointed” Mr Piccolo stated, “I will fulfil my duty with utmost commitment.”
It also highlights BKT’s increased position in the worldwide and European markets. Mr Piccolo now has the task of consolidating the position and feedback of E.T.R.T.O. regarding agricultural tyres. He will also be responsible for the data published in the technical manual and in Engineering Design Information.
