MADISON, Tenn. (May 28, 2014) — Bob Majewski, owner of Sumerel Tire Service in Newport, Ky., is expanding the dealership’s operation to include the middle Tennessee market area and adding a Marangoni Tread North America Inc. retread facility in Lebanon, Tenn.
The new stand-alone plant, Wilson County Tire & Retreading, brings to Middle Tennessee and the Nashville market the Marangoni Ringtread system, according to Marangoni. It will offer fleets new tires and retreading as well as a mounted wheel program, drive-up and pick-up-and-delivery services.
A Marangoni Tread spokesman said he was “not aware of any additions” to Sumerel Tire’s line of products at its other locations.
