TCI adds Michelin retread plant
TCI Tire Centers' commercial and retread divisions have opened a new Michelin Retread Technologies Inc. (MRTI) plant in Birmingham, Ala.
The new facility boosts the number of MRTI shops operated by TCI to 15.
"The Birmingham and surrounding area retread market is continually growing in strength," says Larry White, vice president of marketing, TCI Tire Centers commercial division.
"By adding this MRTI plant, there will be added flexibility and reduced logistics concerns. This will enable TCI to improve its Southeastern Region's capability to respond to TCI customers' needs."
Jason Shoe will manage the new plant in Birmingham. He has more than seven years of retread plant experience at TCI's Statesville, N.C., and Nashville, Tenn., facilities.
