Tire Retread Center Opens in Las Vegas | Construction News

CMC Tire Inc. and Continental Tire the Americas' Commercial Vehicle Tire group celebrated the opening of the partnership's first commercial tire retread facility in Las Vegas, Nev.

During the grand opening celebration at the 25,000 sq.-ft. facility, tire dealer CMC Tire Inc. announced its intention to service southern Utah and the greater Las Vegas area with new and retread tires. Retreads are made with Continental’s ContiTread retreading solution, which extends the overall life of the tire.

The new retread facility can produce up to 24,000 retreads annually, and its production capacity is expected to grow to 48,000 retreads annually. The facility will service more than 300 customers and create 18 new jobs.

ContiLifeCycle, the umbrella for Continental’s retreading operations, has already established a presence in the Americas. Since 2011, Continental has steadily built a network of servicing dealers.

Paul Williams, Continental’s executive vice president for truck tires in the Americas, said the retreads look and run like new. "Our ContiTread products are engineered with the same compounds and tread designs as our new tires,” he added.
