Arnco: 'OTR shortage boosts tire fill sales'

Feb. 10, 2006

The on-going OTR tire shortage has been great for polyurethane flatproofing sales, says Arnco President Larry Carapellotti.

"The current shortage of oversized tires is causing serious problems for dealers and operators, and any product that will squeeze more hours out of their tires takes on critical importance," he says.

"As a result, flatproofing is now being used on larger off-road tires for virtually all applications."

Arnco's Berea, Ohio, processing plant that opened last fall has expanded Arnco's production capacity, he adds.
