Smith Tire & Tread joins has joined the Goodyear retread network, and will receive Goodyear retread equipment and tread rubber to its new plant in Wahpeton, N.D.
Jim Smith, a 20-year retread industry veteran, recently opened a new, fully-equipped Goodyear UniCircle and precure retread plant. The 22,000-square-foot facility produces up to 200 retreaded truck tires per day, which are distributed to commercial truck tire dealerships throughout North Dakota and South Dakota.
“Our main focus is on the dealer business, but we also have plans to aggressively grow our business with end users,” Smith says. “UniCircle gives us a product that none of our competitors have.”
