The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company and Tredit Tire & Wheel Company, Inc. have signed a one-year contract extension for the supply of Goodyear trailer tires.
AKRON, Ohio, Feb. 7, 2014 –
The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company and Tredit Tire & Wheel Company, Inc. have signed a one-year contract extension for the supply of Goodyear trailer tires to original equipment trailer manufacturers. The agreement is an extension of the supply contract originally signed in 2005 by the two companies.
Goodyear will continue to supply its Marathon ST tires, which range in size from 13” to 16” rim diameters. As a versatile, long-running tire, Goodyear Marathon tires are used on light and medium-duty trailers, which include RV, cargo, horse, and boat trailers.
Most trailer tires are delivered to original equipment trailer manufacturers as part of a tire-and-wheel assembly, relieving the trailer manufacturers of the burden of ordering tires, rims and valves, maintaining inventories, mounting and inflating. Tredit performs these functions and delivers completed assemblies on a just-in-time basis. Goodyear sells replacement tires for trailers through its nationwide retailer network.
Goodyear is one of the world’s largest tire companies. It employs about 69,000 people and manufactures its products in 53 facilities in 22 countries around the world. Its two Innovation Centers in Akron, Ohio and Colmar-Berg, Luxembourg strive to develop state-of-the art products and services that set the technology and performance standard for the industry.
