Quality Tire opens a ContiTread plant in Canada
Quality Tire Service Ltd., the largest independent tire dealer in Saskatchewan, has opened its first commercial tire retread facility in western Canada.
The new location will operate as a ContiLifeCycle facility, which is the umbrella for Continental Tire the Americas LLC's retreading operations.
ContiLifeCycle is a "cradle-to-grave solution that begins with a new Continental tire and continues with the ContiTread premium retreading solution," says Continental.
The 17,400-square-foot facility in Saskatoon employs 15 people and has the capacity to produce up to 24,000 truck tire retreads per year. It will produce retreads exclusively for its customers in the provinces of Manitoba and Saskatchewan.
Continental says the facility is the first of many ContiLifeCycle operations planned for the region.
"Growing our ContiLifeCycle distribution across Canada is our most important objective,” says Paul Williams, executive vice president for commercial vehicle tires for Continental's Commercial Vehicle Tire Group.
"Partnering with service-focused distributors like Quality Tire Service LTD in an effort to reduce overall driving costs to our fleet customers will be what drives mutual success of both dealers and fleets."
