New retread plant opens in Kentucky

| 11/14/2008

A commercial retread supplier has opened a new plant near Florence, KY.

Retread America opened the plant in early November to supply products manufactured by Oliver Rubber Co., a wholly owned subsidiary of Michelin North America, officials announced.

The plant will supply to InterStar North America, a leading maintenance and repair network.

“The Oliver Rubber retreads supplied by Retread America will address the needs of InterStar’s intermodal and emergency response system for its commercial fleet customers,” officials stated in a company release.

Oliver Rubber has been around since 1912, selling retread products under the Oliver and MegaMile brands for commercial, industrial and over-the-road tires.
