Canton Bandag Closes Its Doors

Feb. 10, 2023

Canton Bandag, one of the oldest Bandag retreaders in existence, recently closed after 60 years in business, the company's owner and president, Dave Richards Jr., has confirmed.

The Canton, Ohio-based company was founded in 1962 by Richards' father, the late Everett David Richards Sr., and a financial backer, Carlton Coen.

In addition to retreading, Canton Bandag over the years had expanded into manufacturing solid antique rubber tires, truck wheel polishing and other market segments.
