Titan Signs Five-Year Deal with Deere
Titan Tire Corporation, a subsidiary of Titan International, Inc. has entered a new five-year agreement to supply Deere & Company with construction and forestry tyres. With Titan’s recent acquisition of Continental Tire North America, Inc.’s off-the-road (OTR) tyre plant in Bryan, Ohio, Deere’s senior management requested that Titan help them meet tyre demand and overcome shortage challenges, according to an official statement.
“Titan is pleased to step up for Deere and supply the company with number-one quality American-made tyres,” said Titan Chairman and CEO Maurice Taylor Jr. “I’ve been dealing with Deere for more than 32 years and there is not a finer company in the industry. What really impresses me is the commitment Deere is making not only for their current supply needs, but also their commitment to partner with Titan to develop new tires for their customers.”
Titan has invested in the world’s largest rim line to produce new single-piece wheels to replace current multi-piece wheels. This innovation will allow for the development of enhanced tyres for the OTR market.
“Agriculture and off-highway wheel and tre products are Titan’s core business,” said Taylor. “We look forward to working with other original equipment manufacturers to find solutions to their supply challenges. Titan plans to expand our current OTR production in the next 12 months to meet growing needs.”
