Michelin Aircraft wins defense mag award
Michelin Aircraft Tire Co. has won top honors in Defense Logistics magazine's recent award competition. The publication honored Michelin for its supply of tires to all branches of the United States military.
"As a result of the Tire Privatization Initiative of 2005, Michelin was awarded two competitively bid contracts to procure, store and distribute tires to the U.S. military," say Michelin officials.
"Under the terms of these contracts, Michelin supplies tires for various types of ground vehicles, as well as specific aircraft tires used in military service. In order to maintain the military's tire industrial base, Michelin souces the majority of these tires from other tire manufacturers."
