First Commercial Tire Retread Facility Opens In Western Canada

Continental Tire and Quality Tire Service, the largest independent tire dealer in Saskatchewan, said they have opened the first commercial tire retread facility in western Canada.

The Saskatoon factory is the first of many ContiLifeCycle plants planned for the region and is a key component of Continental Tire’s aggressive growth strategy for ContiLifeCycle in Canada, the tire maker said.

“We could not have chosen a better partner for the provinces of Saskatchewan and Manitoba and look forward to many more of these partnerships that also help to bring jobs and boost the Canadian economy into the future,” Paul Williams, Continental’s executive vice president for commercial vehicle tires in the Americas said in a release.
