Retread America Opens Oliver Rubber Retread Plant
A new Oliver Rubber retreading facility has opened in the US town of Florence, Kentucky. Equipment and supplies from the wholly owned Michelin North America subsidiary will be used by Retread America, a supplier of retreads to the intermodal and commercial tyre industries, to produce Oliver brand retreads.
“Oliver Rubber is a proven industry supplier of quality retreads, and we are confident in the company’s ability to provide excellent retreading products to our customers,” said Rodney Goderwis, president of Retread America. “We selected Oliver Rubber because they offer one of the broadest product lines in the industry, which will enable us to offer premium retreads at value prices for all segments.”
Retread America is the primary retread supplier to InterStar North America, a leading maintenance and repair management network serving the transportation industry. The Oliver Rubber retreads supplied by Retread America will address the needs of InterStar’s intermodal and emergency response system (ERS) for its commercial fleet customers.
“Oliver Rubber welcomes Retread America into the Oliver family of retreaders,” said Bill Guzick, president of Oliver Rubber Company. “We look forward to working with Retread America and InterStar to develop the ERS and intermodal business to its full potential. The Oliver retreading plant also is a perfect fit with InterStar’s cooperative agreement with Michelin North America, Inc. to offer Michelin brand truck tyres through InterStar’s ERS network.”
