Michelin Earthmover expands repair network
The Michelin Earthmover division of Michelin Americas Truck Tires announced that since its inception in February 2013, the company has certified 11 Michelin Professional Earthmover Dealers into the Michelin Earthmover Performance Repairs program.
These dealers have undergone the process of certifying their repair locations through a comprehensive audit. The program is designed to develop consistent, professional, and validated repair shops throughout the industry.
