TEXARKANA, Texas (July 27, 2009) — Heintschel Tire & Service Inc. will convert its commercial truck tire retreading operation to Goodyear's UniCircle precure retreading processes at its retreading plant in Texarkana.
Heintschel Tire operates a 20,000-sq.-ft. commercial truck tire retreading plant with three production chambers in Texarkana, along with a 15,000-sq.-ft. warehouse at the same location. It will begin using the UniCircle retread process to produce medium- and heavy-duty retread truck tires.
The company, which also operates a retail/commercial tire location in Texarkana and a tire distribution and fleet service center in Rockwall, Texas, serves several fleets and truck operators involved in long haul, regional haul, mining and logging applications.
“We feel Goodyear offers customers products that help provide fleets and truck operators the cradle-to-grave tire solutions they want,” said Garry Heintschel, vice president and co-owner of Heintschel Tire. “àWe feel Goodyear is moving in the same direction that we need to go and at the speed in which we need to respond to our customers.”
