OTR retreader opens joint venture plant
H&H Industries Inc. has opened an OTR retread and repair facility in Pickton, Texas, with Trey Whiteman. The joint venture facility is named H&W Retread and Repair.
Whiteman, who owned and operated an OTR repair facility in Pickton for several years, will operate H&W.
"H&W was formed as a sister company to H&H to expand our national coverage area, increase our market share in the western territories, and to be utilized as a staging point for our business in Mexico," says H&H President Noah Hickman. H&H is based in Oak Hill, Ohio.
H&W will tread OTR tires using the Bridgestone Continuum precure retread process and cut tread process, supplemented by H&H's mold retread process, which will allow H&W "to have the most diverse retread capabilities possible," says Hickman.
"This, coupled with our used tire inventories, should allow us to provide more opportunities to service providers than ever before."
H&H retreads close to 11,400 OTR tires a year at its Oak Hill, facility.
