Commercial Tire Dealer
Following the first three quarters of 2014, Titan International Inc. Chairman and CEO Morry Taylor explained to the investment community how his company would rebound from a net loss of $27.4 million on net sales of $1.5 billion.
An analysis of Modern Tire Dealer’s “Top 100 retreaders in the U.S.” list is more than a microcosm of the domestic retreading industry. It represents such a large percentage of output that it almost speaks for the industry as a whole.
Sixty years ago, no one was producing a 63-inch giant OTR tire, much less retreading one. Today, 63-inch tires are in demand all over the world. And a number of companies, including Purcell Tire & Rubber Co. in Potosi, Mo., are profitably selling, retreading and/or repairing them.
