Bridgestone submits four retreads for SmartWay certification

Bridgestone is hopeful to add four more retreads to its SmartWay-verified line-up, giving it a total of seven, the company announced Monday.

The most recent retreads to be submitted – FCR Trailer FuelTech, FuelTech Trailer, FuelTech Drive and B835 FuelTech – are currently in the process of being verified by the EPA SmartWay program.

“At Bridgestone Commercial Solutions, we are responding to evolving market needs with tire solutions that not only are smart for business, but are also smart for the earth,” Bert Jones, manager, product marketing, TBR, retread and OTR, Bridgestone Commercial Solutions says. “Having seven retread product offerings that surpass SmartWay requirements is just one more way we are meeting customer needs and truly sets us apart in the industry.”

There are currently three Bandag retread tires that have been SmartWay-certified: the B710 FuelTech; B197 FuelTech; and B135 FuelTech.
