Order Reprints

Starting next week, will publish a series of exclusive, one-on-one interviews with executives from the country’s four biggest retread companies -- in their entirety.

Read what officials from Bridgestone Bandag Tire Solutions, Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co., Michelin Retread Technologies Inc. and Marangoni Tread North America have to say about the present state of the North American retread industry and what the rest of the year will bring.

“We’re seeing some promising signs that we’re going to see increases in volume,” says Marangoni CEO Bill Sweatman.

“If the market picks up during the second half of the year, I think we’re going to see a lot of customers re-equip some trucks they’ve parked over the last 12 months -- and they’re going to be looking to buy some retreads,” says Marc Leferriere, vice president of marketing for Michelin Americas Truck Tires.

Executives also discuss the feasibility of environmentally friendly retread products, new technologies in development, and more!

The Web stories are in addition to the coverage in Modern Tire Dealer's April issue.
