Rinaldi began operation in 1969 with the production of materials for retreading (reuse of the carcass from used tyres by putting onnew tread). In 1974 Rinaldi increased its production with inner tubes and in 1980 began their production of tyres. Today Rinaldi manufactures tyres and inner tubes for off-road and on-road motorcycles, scooters, mopeds, farm tractors, trailers and non-motorized industrial vehicles. Rinaldi produces about 220 000 inner tubes and 250,000 tyres a month and employs approximately 700 people. Rinaldi exports its tyres to retailers in Europe, North and South America and Australia, and their tyres are used by many prominent professional riders around the world.
