Piedmont Truck Tires has entered into a licensing agreement with Continental Tire the Americas, LLC to join the ContiLifeCycle dealer network.
As a ContiLifeCycle dealer, Piedmont Truck Tires will be supplied with flat, pre-cured ContiTread products, which will allow the commercial tire dealer to produce retreads featuring the same pattern designs, rubber compounding and tread technology that are included in new Continental brand truck tires.
“We chose to extend our relationship with Continental because we believe in the quality of their products, and see they are moving aggressively to become an industry leader,” says Dan Rice, president of Piedmont Truck Tires. “Continental has proven to be a true partner and we are prepared to take the steps needed to support the growth of both businesses.”
Affiliation between the two companies began in late 2010 when Piedmont Truck Tires started selling new Continental truck tires.
In July 2014, Piedmont Truck Tires began retreading truck tires using Continental’s ContiLifeCycle retreading processes at its 155,000-square-foot facility in Graham, N.C., and also became the first retreader to use Continental’s proprietary new manufacturing control software, CLC Soft.
