Continental signs first Canadian retreader

Posted on April 1, 2014

Contintental Tire the Americas LLC announced that Montreal area retreader Pneus et Rechapage Uni Inc. has become the first retreader in Canada to obtain a license for its ContiTreads products.

Continental said today that Pneus et Rechapage Uni has begun retreading truck tires with ContiTread brand flat precure treads at its facility in Richmond, Quebec. Pneus et Rechapage Uni will be supplying authorized Continental truck tire dealers throughout eastern Canada with ContiTread retreads.

Pierre Dodier, general manager, says Continental’s offering for retreaders is attractive because it allows customization 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,” Dodier says.

“The Continental family of truck tires, especially its regional and traction products, sets them apart from other tire manufacturers. Now we are proud to set ourselves apart from other retreaders by being the first to offer their ContiTreads in Canada.”

Continental continues to expand its ContiLifeCycle truck tire product offering. The company now provides ContiTreads in a variety of long haul, regional and construction patterns. Three of its ContiTread products are verified for low rolling resistance by the U.S. EPA’s SmartWay Transport Partnership.

A grand opening celebration is planned for Pneus et Rechapage Uni on the evening of April 15, 2014. For details email contiquebec@conti-na.com or call Patrick Lachance at 514-825-8473.
