Triangle's Diamondback Brand Finds Exclusive Partner
Taskmaster Components, a major supplier of tire and wheel assemblies for North American original equipment trailer manufacturers, will be the exclusive distributor of Diamondback specialty trailer (ST) tires. The Diamondback brand is manufactured by Triangle Tire USA.
“Passing the stringent OEM requirements is certainly validation of Triangle Tire’s longtime commitment to developing and manufacturing high-quality specialty trailer tires,” says Triangle Tire USA CEO Manny Cicero. “The fact that Triangle Tire is one of the most environmentally conscious tire manufacturers in the world was also a major selling point for Taskmaster Components.”
Taskmaster Components, which is based in Mount Pleasant, Texas, has OEM customers in the utility trailers, recreation vehicles, livestock trailers and over-the-road dry van trailers businesses.
“Diamondback STR tires are high-quality radials built by a well-known, well-funded, and progressive company,” says Taskmaster Components CEO Tom Walker. “The Diamondback is another exciting tire for us that passes FMVSS139, has no tire ash added as filler, and allows us to continue our mission of offering high-quality products at great prices. We have great respect for and confidence in Manny Cicero and Lin Bin. Our relationship with Lin Bin goes all the way back to 2001.”
Sid Parr, who heads up the Diamondback brand division for Triangle Tire USA, said the Diamondback STR line-up for Taskmaster Components will feature a total of nine sizes in two tread patterns, including an all-steel ST tire for heavier trailers.
