Michelin to Expand Georgia Retread Facility

Michelin Retread Technologies (MRT) said it will expand its Covington, Ga., manufacturing facility in order to meet a continuing increase in customer demand. Located in Lochridge Industrial Park in Covington, southeast of Atlanta, the facility produces a variety of pre-mold treads for MRT franchises and retread plants throughout North America.

COVINGTON, GA — Michelin Retread Technologies (MRT) said it will expand its Covington, Ga., manufacturing facility in order to meet a continuing increase in customer demand.

Located in Lochridge Industrial Park in Covington, southeast of Atlanta, the facility produces a variety of pre-mold treads for MRT franchises and retread plants throughout North America. MRT makes pre-mold treads for long haul, regional, on/off road, urban and sanitation-specific applications.

According to John Yarbro, facility manager for the Covington MRT plant, this is the plant’s first major expansion since beginning operations in 1999.

“This expansion is necessary to meet the demand for additional tread volume, but will also allow us to remain in step with our new tire technology with features such as co-extruded rubber, extra wide treads for the new X One wide single tires and other technically-advanced tread features,” said Yarbro. “We are doubling the volume, but more important, we are adding high technology volume.”
