Piedmont Truck Tires, a Southern-based commercial tire dealership, has signed a licensing agreement with Continental Tire the Americas LLC joining the ContiLifeCycle dealer network.
As a ContiLifeCycle dealer, Piedmont Truck Tires will be supplied with flat, procured ContiTread products, which will allow the commercial tire dealer to produce retreads featuring the same pattern designs, rubber compounding and tread technology that are included in new Continental brand truck tires.
Piedmont Truck Tires began retreading truck tires using Continental’s ContiLife Cycle retreading processes in July at its 155,000-square-foot facility in Graham, N.C.
It also became the first retreader to use Continental’s proprietary new manufacturing control software, CLC Soft.
Piedmont Truck Tires was incorporated in 1978 as a subsidiary of Piedmont Ford Truck Sales in Greensboro, N.C. Today, Piedmont operates nine commercial truck centers throughout North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia.
Piedmont’s relationship with ContiLifeCycle started in 2010 when the company started selling new Continental truck tires.
