Treadco, based in Hamilton, has become the first factory in New Zealand to take advantage of the new Michelin Accredited Retread Factory with Michelin Quality System.
This demonstrates that Treadco has met the highest standard of safety, manufacturing, training and environmental consciousness that Michelin expects to ensure the delivery of quality retreaded tyres.
Treadco has worked closely with Michelin over the past 18 months to implement and maintain the new retreading standards required.
By achieving Michelin accreditation it now has access to the latest in Michelin branded tread patterns that are exclusively available for use on Michelin casings.
“Michelin has set the standard required to become an accredited retread factory incredibly high to ensure we deliver our customers the best possible product,” said Kevin Sigston, Michelin Retread Manager Australia / New Zealand.
“I congratulate the team at Treadco on achieving this accreditation and welcome our new partnership with them.
“The new Michelin Retread incorporates the latest tyre technology to deliver significant benefits to truck and bus operators. Utilising the Michelin Multi-Life Strategy it offers operators the lowest cost of ownership, improved safety, high quality and increased reliability backed by Michelin Technical support.”
