Behind and to his left are Bill Sweatman, CEO and president of Marangoni Tread North America, and Bob Majewski, CEO and president of Sumerel Tire Service.

Marangoni Tread North America Inc. announced that its newest dealer, Wilson County Tire and Retreading in Lebanon, Tenn., recently hosted an open house.

Bob Majewski, owner of Sumerel Tire Service in Newport, Ky., expanded his operation this summer with the addition of the retread facility.

Wilson County Tire and Retreading supplies retread customers in middle Tennessee and the Nashville market with Marangoni Retread system products.

Rick Majewski is vice president of the new operation. He has more than 30 years of retreading, fleet and service experience.

The open house featured a plant tour, Spot the Retread contest and an Out of Service tire demonstration. Guests could enter a drawing for the chance to win a set of eight commercial truck tires or four super singles to be retreaded using the Ringtread system on the winner’s own casings, according to Marangoni.

Visitors tested their knowledge and skills when they tried to spot the difference between a tire that had been retreaded using the Ringtread system verses a new tire. Marangoni says contestants identified the Ringtread 70% of the time as the new tire.

Marangoni and Wilson County Tire associates guided guests on a step-by-step tour that explained the process of creating a retreaded tire from delivery to finish using the Ringtread system.

Wilson County Tire and Retreading also offers a mounted-wheel program, drive-up service and pick-up and delivery.

Facebook is great for sharing your thoughts and feelings to everyone you have friended, but email is more targeted, especially when used for business. You might say it is even more personal than Facebook because it is designed for interaction between two people or among a small group of people.

Drew Howlett from Falken says developing the right M/T tire is critical. “There are too many other competitive products on the market to have any weaknesses.”
