Canadian Treads signs with Michelin

Sept. 22, 2004

Canadian Treads will begin using Michelin Retread Technologies Inc.´s (MRTI) pre-mold process at its Edmonton, Alberta, plant before the end of the year.

Canadian Treads is MRTI´s fifth retreader in Canada.

"The demand for MRTI products in western Canada is high," says Guy Pekle, president of Michelin Retread Technologies (Canada) Inc.

"With this addition, we are better positioned to serve our customers´ needs."

Earlier this month, MRTI added Raben Tire Co. to its list of licensees.

"There are now more than 230 points of sale in North America for Michelin retreads," say MRTI officials.
