Titan, Rosler team up to buy OTR plant

Sept. 30, 2005

An official from the United Steelworkers has confirmed that Titan International Inc. has formed an alliance with Dortmund, Germany-based The Rosler Group in an attempt to buy Continental Tire North America Inc.'s OTR tire plant in Bryan, Ohio.

Titan CEO and President Morry Taylor would not comment on the development when contacted by moderntiredealer.com earlier this week.

Rosler must forge a new contract with the union before it can buy the plant, which can produce 300 OTR tires a day at capacity, according to Modern Tire Dealer research.
