Trailer manufacturer CIMC has launched a new company focused on providing replacement tires, retreads and supplies for intermodal chassis, called CIMC Commercial Tire.

CIMC launched the new company to meet demand for quality intermodal tire retreading and supply that meets the unique needs of U.S. intermodal companies.

Pat Gunn has been hired as chief executive officer of CIMC Commercial Tire.  He is a tire industry professional with 35 years of experience in management and executive positions across all sectors of the commercial tire business.  Gunn’s career began at Michelin and encompassed almost three decades with Bridgestone.  Prior to taking his new position with CIMC Commercial Tire, he was senior director of sales and marketing for the commercial tire group at Giti Tire.

CIMC Commercial Tire is operated from a new facility in Providence, N.J. with additional plant expansion planned for 2018.  Their proprietary tread rubber design and compounding is designed to specifically address the demands of the intermodal application.
