GREENVILLE, S.C. (Sept. 8, 2004) — Raben Tire Co. has selected Michelin Retread Technologies (MRT) to expand its retread operations, Michelin North America Inc. said.
Evansville, Ind.-based Raben Tire will build its new facility in Haubstadt, Ind., the tire maker said. Raben Tire already operates Goodyear, Oliver Rubber Co. and Bandag Inc. retread facilities. Raben Tire has locations in Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri and Arkansas.
In 2003, Raben Tire's three retread plants had an average production of about 325 units a day.
“With the addition of Michelin retreads to our existing lineup of Bandag and Goodyear retread offerings, our customers will have the benefit of valuable offerings to satisfy their needs,” said Tom Raben, president of Raben Tire.
