History

Pirelli has a long history in tyre manufacturing, and their drive and determination through the years have placed them firmly as a premium tyre manufacture and a household name. The Pirelli banner is instantly recognisable as high performance and their association with Formula 1 reinforces this status. As a family business Pirelli was established in 1872 producing electrical cables. Pirelli then progressed into the manufacturing of tyres in 1894, producing the ercole type cycle tyre. In 1902 their tyre journey really began, as they expanded and invested into rubber production and overseas plants.

Pirelli went on to do what they do best and developed a product that could compete at the highest standards. At the height of the Pirelli F1 years it was the long standing partnerships firstly with Alfa Romeo and then Maserati that forged the way for innovations in their tyre development. In the 20's Pirelli made the move to cord technology, then the 1950's saw the start of a new era in Pirelli's developments in the design of the revolutionary Cinturato radial tyre. The radial tyre wraps around the carcass like a belt. The move to a radial tyre instead of the standard design of the cross-ply, meant a tyre that was less likely to split.

It was this drive to make their mark on the industry that set the tone for Pirelli's future and its strong position amongst the premium brand tyre market. During their 25 years away from F1 they surged ahead in their growth with plants opening across the globe and the development of their high performance eco compatible Pirelli P7 tyre range. Following their return to F1 in the 80's they continued their innovation in the design of the P zero range, a tyre that adapted racing tyre technology to road tyres.

Technology

When considering the developments that have occurred over the years in tyre technologies, the contribution Pirelli has made to such innovations must be recognised. You may associate them with high performance tyres due to their years involved with Formula 1, but you may not realise the impact they have had on the advances in tyre technology and on the current methods of tyre production.

Never guilty of standing still, this highly innovative company took the massive decision in 1956 to pull out of motor racing. Despite Pirelli's impressive record they decided to concentrate their efforts and technologies on their new development the acclaimed Cinturato radial tyre. Taking the radial development of the Cinturato yet further, Pirelli also changed their original design from textile fibre to the new cord technology. The time and investment that they made during their grand prix years was brought into their tyre development as a whole, making them innovators within the tyre industry.

Over the years Pirelli has undergone many changes but they have remained an innovator in tyre technology. It is their continued determination to grow and evolve as a tyre manufacture that has helped them to withstand economical pressures and remain one of the leading premium brands. Their commitment to the growth of Pirelli continues with new life breathed into their old ranges such as the Cinturato as an eco solution, whilst the P zero flies the flag for their ultra high performance design and technology.
