TravelCenters of America recently held an official grand opening for the TA Commercial Tire Network Retread Center.

Bowling Green Mayor Richard Edwards and Barry Richards, president and COO of TravelCenters, along with Skip McGary, TA’s executive vice president, presided over the ribbon cutting at the facility in Bowling Green OH. Members of the Bowling Green Chamber of Commerce also participated.

“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,” Richards said.

“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.”

Attendees had an opportunity to tour the facility, observe tire retread production and see the capabilities of the OnSITE mobile maintenance truck, and the RoadSquad emergency breakdown and repair truck.

The TA Commercial Tire Network Retread Center, which now is producing retread tires, is part of the Goodyear Authorized Retread Network. Customer-owned casings can be retreaded with premium performance Goodyear treads, a solution that lowers fleets’ cost-per-mile by lengthening tire life.

The TA Commercial Tire Network Retread Center is a 32,000-square-foot retread center that 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 of Bowling Green, Ohio.

Local customers will be able to purchase Goodyear retread tires, as well as shop a full line of new Goodyear brand tires in the remodeled showroom. Tire inspection and repair services, as well as roadside service, also will 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.
