To all our valued Customers and Friends:


As the Christmas season approaches and yet another year is coming to an end, we are reminded how much we owe our success to you, our valued customers and friends.  Everybody usually looks forward to the Christmas holiday to relax and celebrate.  It is our desire to continue building lasting relationships with people we interact with on a regular basis.  We also want to do our very best to continue to design and build the finest tire repair equipment available to the Tire Service Industry.  We want to continue to build our track record for quality, innovation and prompt reaction to our customers’ needs.


We have served this industry for over 7 decades and are determined to continue to do so.  Our website, continues to change.  We feature our advanced PLC based Vulcatouch® Controls for Vulcaflex® OTR and Truck & Tractor Tire Repair Systems which are becoming more popular due to ease of operation and many safety features not possible on conventional electro mechanical controls. 


The Christmas season is a welcome break from the pressures of everyday business, a time to spend with family and friends, an especially good time to count our blessings, an appropriate time to say “thank you so much” to our many good customers and friends.  We do appreciate you.


On behalf of all of us at VULCAN-VULCAP Industries, thank you for the opportunity of serving you in the past.  We all wish you a healthy and productive 2017, and hope that VULCAN-VULCAP equipment will continue to contribute to the success of your company.  May happiness and God’s richest blessings be with you in the New Year.


Best wishes from all of us,






Heinz W. Haischt    












This year VULCAN-VULCAP Industries Inc. for the first time attended the Northern Mines Expo in order to reach the mining companies and to demonstrate our advanced VULCAN-VULCAP Vulcaflex® OTR Tire Repair System with Vulcatouch® Controls. 

This was a big event, since this year was the 100 year celebration of Timmins and Mining. This Expo is quickly becoming the premiere mining show in Northern Ontario.  Mining is a large part of Timmins and this is why the Northern Mines and Exploration Expo was taking place there this year.

This is one of the largest mining shows in the world exhibiting equipment used in the mining industry.  The XII International Congress featured meetings between Government representatives, private sector companies, exhibitors, academics and professionals.  They discussed the present state of the mining industry, technological innovations as well as the challenges and opportunities faced by mining in the next decade.

Mining is a very important industry in Chile.  Canada, who is one of the leading countries for mining equipment and innovation was well represented with the many exhibition stands in the CAMESE (Canadian Association of Mining Equipment and Services for Export) pavilion.

Considering this opportunity and also due to the Free Trade Agreement between Chile and Canada,  VULCAN-VULCAP for the first time participated in an Expo focused on the mining industry in order to introduce and demonstrate our advanced PLC based Vulcaflex® OTR Tire Vulcanizing Repair System with Vulcatouch®  Touchscreen.

Reliable giant tire repairs at mining sites are easily accomplished with the Vulcaflex® OTR Tire Section Repair System with Vulcatouch® Control System.  This System offers many safety features as well as data collection with repair profiles, not possible with conventional electro-mechanical control systems.

repaired at site to save costs and minimize down time of this expensive equipment.
