Groupe Robert Bernard, a Canadian retreader located in Granby, Quebec, has inaugurated its $3 million state-of-the-art retreading plant, the largest in Canada.

It is the eighth in Canada and 80th in North America to use Michelin Retread Technologies (MRT).

“We have full faith in the technology offered by MRT and we have a strong relationship with the Michelin family going back 45 years,” says Jocelyn Bernard, vice president of Groupe Robert Bernard.

“Our new plant provides us with a larger shop floor of 70.000 square feet. This will facilitate better production and storage. This will also help us reduce wait times for delivery.”

“Although MRT Canada now has eight plants across the country, Robert Bernard MRT is the only hybrid facility, which means it can manufacture high quality retread tires using Pre-Mold and Custom-Mold processes,” says Harold Phillips, chief operating officer, Michelin Canada.

“With this expansion, Robert Bernard MRT is the largest retread plant in Canada. This will help the company meet the increasing demand for the highest quality MRT retread tires in Quebec.”
