TravelCenters of America holds grand opening of new retread center

TravelCenters of America held the grand opening of its TA Commercial Tire Network Retread Center on July 12.

The new retread center is now open and producing retread tires, and is part of the Goodyear Authorized Retread Network. Customer-owned casings can be retreaded with premium performance Goodyear treads.

The 32,000-sq. ft. TA Commercial Tire Network Retread Center, located in Bowling Green, Ohio, will provide a full line of Goodyear commercial tire retread products, including Goodyear UniCircle retreads, to fleets, local industries and tire dealers within a 150-mile radius. Local customers will be able to purchase Goodyear retread tires and shop for a full line of new Goodyear brand tires in the remodeled showroom. Tire inspection and repair services, as well as roadside service, will also be available through the retread center. In addition, numerous TA Truck Service facilities will have access to Goodyear brand retread tires produced at this plant.

“We have a winning combination: A newly renovated facility in a great community, state-of-the-art retread equipment and an operations team with over 150 combined years of expertise in the retread business,” said Barry Richards, president and chief operating officer of TravelCenters. “Now we have the ability to provide a complete tire management system and retread tires for national and local fleets, local industries, regional construction and the agricultural segments.”
