Continental signs first Canadian retreader
Continental Tire the Americas reports that it has signed up its first retreader in Canada. Montreal area retreader Pneus et Rechapage Uni has become the first retreader in the country to obtain a license for ContiTread brand flat pre-cure treads, and will now supply authorised Continental truck tyre dealers throughout Eastern Canada with ContiTread retreads.
According to general manager Pierre Dodier, Continental’s offering for retreaders is attractive because it allows customisation for each facility’s special needs. “Continental’s sales staff, as well as its dedicated retread engineers, provided us with guidance every step of the way and met our needs as a retreader,” he said. “The Continental family of truck tyres, especially its regional and traction products, sets them apart from other tyre manufacturers. Now we are proud to set ourselves apart from other retreaders by being the first to offer their ContiTreads in Canada.”
