Aug. 20, 2019

Texas-based KCT Retreads LLC, which goes to market as King Country Retread, has joined the Marangoni Tread North America Inc. independent dealer network and will offer Marangoni’s Ringtread brand throughout Texas, Oklahoma and New Mexico.

The company renovated an existing building into a retread plant which began operations three months ago. The new facility is located in Friona in northwest Texas. The King Country Retread plant has a capacity of more than 30,000 medium truck retreads a year.

The Marangoni network offers several advantages, according to King Country Retread President Mike King. “Profitability and the ability to be an independent retreader with control over our future combined with the Ringtread Splice-Less technology were the key drivers that fueled our decision to go with Marangoni.”

  • complete tire service - mounting, dismounting, balancing, full road service
