Michelin inaugurates retread facilities in Coimbatore and Salem in collaboration with TVS Tread

Michelin Tyres inaugurated two new Michelin certified Recamic tyre retreading facilities in Tamil Nadu located at Coimbatore and Salem, to bring quality retread solutions for the Truck & Bus customers in the region. The new facilities have been set up in collaboration with
TVS Tread, the retreading arm of TVS Group, with the primary objective to work together towards the advancement of the retreading sector in the Indian Commercial Vehicle segment.

The two new facilities from Michelin & TVS Tread will provide quality retreading solutions for radial tyres that will help reduce operational costs for transporters. Collaborating for the cause of higher tyre mileage and fuel savings, these new retread facilities will further help in differentiating performance of Michelin tyres by improving on the second and third lives of the Michelin casings. The announcement comes as a strategic move with both the companies sharing a strong focus to help the Truck/Bus fleet owners to optimise their operational costs.

Both facilities will offer the Michelin group brand Recamic tread for use on all Michelin casings besides offering TVS treads on non-Michelin casings. It is designed and certified to offer retreads for all Radial casings. Besides providing retreading on customer casings it will also produce Recamic retreads on Michelin owned casings which will be marketed exclusively through the Michelin Truck Service Network partners.

"We are excited about our collaboration with TVS Tread and we expect to leverage this partnership not only to streamline the industry but also to help us expand our network in the country. The collaboration builds on our strategy to provide quality retread and repair solutions that not only last long, but prove value for money for the fleet owners," said B. Kumar, Country Manager - Channel Development, Michelin India.

"Being the pioneer for retreading in the country it has been always our endeavor to offer cost effective solutions to our customers. We are proud that TVS Tread has been serving the fleet operators for over 7 decades, being the single largest retread solutions provider in the country for the entire range and sizes of tyres since 1943. With the current synergy with Michelin, TVS Tread will be able to offer quality retread solutions to the growing commercial vehicle customers in Tamil Nadu," added V.N. Ramamoorthy, CEO, TVS Tread.
