Love's Travel Stops & Country Stores has opened its fifth retread plant. The Laredo, Texas, location is the company's second retread facility in the state. The site also will be home to a distribution center.
"The strong demand for our retread product, new tires and related services is driving us to open additional production and distribution facilities to service and supply our valued fleet customers," says Steve Phillips, director of tire sales and plant operations. "The new facility in Laredo adds greater coverage to an important market area, providing our services on-site, at fleet terminals and over the road through our network of stops."
Love's other retread plants are located in Kingman, Ariz.; Atlanta, Ga.; Plainfield, Ind.; and Grand Prairie, Texas. Love's is tied for the No. 14 spot on Modern Tire Dealer's list of the largest retreaders in the country.
The company utlizes the Oliver retread process. Through its 350+ truck service centers and Speedco locations, the company offers heavy-duty tire care, light mechanical services, commercial truck oil changes and roadside assistance for professional drivers.
Love's retread warranty combines quality and safety by covering retreads, casings and any repairs for the full life of the retread. This is the most extensive warranty available in the industry and is redeemable at any Love's Truck Tire Care and Speedco locations across the country.
