FORT MILL, S.C. (April 19, 2013) — Continental Tire the Americas L.L.C.'s Commercial Specialty Tire business unit is launching two lines of remolded industrial tires for sale in North America.
The new lines, being sold under the Ameri*Steel and Astrum Blue brands, are made at Conti's joint venture industrial tire plant in Sri Lanka.
The Ameri*Steel line is made from recycled base bands and is offered in a standard black compound with smooth tread design in 11 core sizes. The line offers fork lift operators stationary stability with high load-carrying capacity, Conti said.
Michael Maertens, managing director of Continental CST, said the line offers fork lift users a green alternative at a lowered cost.
