MUSCLE SHOALS, Ala. (July 1, 2002) — Robbins L.L.C., a retreading materials supplier, has purchased the assets and technology of Presti Rubber Products Inc. of New Britain, Pa.
Presti makes and distributes outside and inside retreading envelopes—marketed under the Survivor, Super-Lope and Inner-Lope brands—for light truck through large off-road tires, according to Muscle Shoals-based Robbins.
Robbins produces curing tubes, outside and inside envelopes for the retreading of passenger, truck and small off-road tires. Its products are marketed under the Double Dot, Uni-Tube, Accu Fit and Accu Fit II names.
The company, founded in 1921, also provides specialized, custom-mixed rubber compounds and services to other rubber product manufacturing companies. Its products are distributed through a global network of independent distributors and regional sales managers.
Presti Rubber "has pledged its continuing support to insure that the transition goes smoothly," a Robbins press release said.
