Hancock County Tire & Retreading in Bluffton, Ohio, has joined the Marangoni Tread North America Inc. dealer network and will offer Marangoni’s Ringtread brand.
The Blufton retread plant is part of Sumerel Tire Service Inc., which is based in Newport, Ky. Bob Majewski, Sumerel Tire Service’s chief technical officer, said, “Hancock County Tire & Retreading added the Marangoni Ringtread system because we like to be different in the way we go to market. Everyone sells precure treads, but the Ringtread separates us from the others.”
Sumerel Tire Service opened Hancock County Tire & Retreading in 2011 to further expand its coverage area in Ohio, Indiana and West Virginia.
The 22,000-square-foot commercial truck tire service center has drive-through service bays and is staffed by Tire Industry Association trained technicians. Tire services include mounting, dismounting balancing and full road service. The outlet offers many services for fleets, including casing asset management, fleet reporting, lowest cost per mile and mounted wheel programs. In addition to retreading, the facility provides tire repair and wheel refurbishment services. The Hankook, Aeolus, Arisun, and Aurora brands are among the wide array of brands offered.
Marangoni Tread North America is "particularly happy" to add Hancock County Tire & Retreading to its network, according to Bill Sweatman, president. “Hancock County Tire & Retreading has a great reputation of servicing their customers with the highest standard of quality and service. 2016 has been especially good for adding independent retreaders to the Marangoni network. By doing so, we have been able to continue to increase market share and market coverage,” says Sweatman.
