Michelin Retread Technologies Inc. (MRTI) has added a press at its Covington, Ga., plant that can produce up to one million new retreads a year.

"The demand for our retread products is accelerating, fueled by strong growth from existing franchisees, as well as the opening of 10 new MRTI plants in North America during the last 12 months," says Luc Minguet, COO of Michelin Americas Truck Tires.

The new press will facilitate the production of Michelin X One wide-base retreads, plus some "high-tech retreads that the market here has not seen yet," according to MRTI officials.
