Snider Fleet Solutions expanded its operations with the opening of its newest tire retread plant, one of the largest in the Michelin network. With over 3,000 feet of monorail, the facility can produce 600 finished retreads over a two-shift period, allowing Snider to efficiently serve even the largest volume customers.
“We took everything we know about designing and running a first-rate retread plant and put it into our new facility,” says Marty Herndon, executive vice president/COO of Snider. “This is an absolute state-of-the-art facility, with the technology — and the space — to give our customers the exceptional service they expect from Snider.”
Located in Newton, North Carolina, the plant features all-new Michelin Retread Technologies equipment housed in 455,000 square feet of floor space, sections of which are devoted to production, administration and an extensive distribution center. The 75,000-square-foot distribution center allows Snider to keep abundant inventory on hand and to take advantage of high-volume purchases, and subsequently pass those savings on to its customers.
“The plant and equipment are new, but Snider’s practice of investing in the latest technology and training go all the way back to the founding of the company 40 years ago,” says John Snider, CEO and president. “It’s how we help our customers keep their fleets on the road and performing at their best.”
