1975, New Holland Tire, Inc. has had a strong presence in the
commercial truck tire retreading industry. While retreading is our
specialty, we also offer a large inventory of new commercial truck and
trailer tires. With 2 retread plants, one in Terre Hill PA and one in
Sumner GA, we are able to supply many major intermodal companies with
top-of-the-line retreads and new tires, but also supply many smaller
companies and owner-operators with their tire needs. Our Pennsylvania
location also has a full service shop.

WHAT IS A
A retread, or "recap," is a previously-worn tire which has gone through
a remanufacturing process designed to extend its useful service life.
Retreading starts with a safety inspection of the tire. The old tread
is then buffed away, and
a new rubber tread is applied to the bare
"casing" using specialized machinery.
Retreads are significantly cheaper than new tires. As a result, they
are widely used in large-scale operations such as trucking, bussing and
commercial aviation. They are also the most environmentally friendly
way of recycling used tires.

During World War
II, the term "retread" was
used to describe Army officers who had left the service before the war
began for any reason (failure of promotion, medical disqualification,
reduction in force, retirement, etc.), but who had been recalled to
active duty in the Army Reserve for the duration of the war.
