TravelCenters of America announced the grand opening of the TA Commercial Tire Network Retread Center, located in Bowling Green, Ohio. The 32,000-square-foot facility is part of the Goodyear Authorized Retread Network.

Customer-owned casings can be retreaded with premium performance Goodyear treads, a solution that lowers fleets’ cost-per-mile by lengthening the life of the tires, according to Westlake, Ohio-based TCA — the nation’s only publicly traded truck stop network.

“We have a winning combination – a newly renovated facility in a great community, state-of-the-art retread equipment and an operations team with over 150 combined years of expertise in the retread business,” Barry Richards, CEO of TravelCenters, said in a release.

“Now we have the ability to provide a complete tire management system and retread tires for national and local fleets, local industries, regional construction and the agricultural segments,” he said.

In addition, the center will provide a full line of Goodyear commercial tire retread products – including Goodyear UniCircle retreads – to fleets, local industries and tire dealers within a 150-mile radius of Bowling Green.

Local customers will be able to purchase Goodyear retread tires and also shop a full line of new Goodyear brand tires in the remodeled showroom.

Tire inspection and repair services, as well as roadside service, will also be available through the retread center.

Also, numerous TA Truck Service facilities will have access to Goodyear brand retread tires produced at this plant.

TCA conducts business in 43 states and Canada, principally under the TA and Petro Stopping Centers travel center brands and the Minit Mart convenience store brand.
