ATLANTA (Jan. 15, 2015) — Lehigh Technologies Inc. and Liberty Tire Recycling L.L.C. have signed a distribution agreement involving Lehigh's proprietary Rheopave rubber-modified-asphalt technology.
According to the Jan. 14 agreement, Lehigh said that Liberty Tire will provide sales, service and support for Rheopave in selected regions of North America. Lehigh and Liberty Tire did not reveal which regions of North America are involved.
“Combining our companies' capabilities enables us to broaden the reach for an important technology,” said Lehigh Sales Director Ryan Alleman. “Together we hope to make Rheopave the performance standard for [rubber-modified asphalt] systems.”
Lehigh added Rheopave technology to its product line in April 2014 in a partnership agreement with Rheopave Technologies L.L.C.
