Michelin Remix tyres now UK made

Stoke-on-Trent, UK: The first remanufactured tyres incorporating Michelin Durable Technologies have rolled off Michelin’s new Remix truck tyre retreading operation in Stoke-on-Trent.

The factory will provide the latest generation tyre technologies for the UK and Irish markets, producing more durable and environmentally-friendly solutions for truck, coach and bus operators.

The Stoke-on-Trent Remix factory enables Michelin to remould tyres incorporating Michelin Durable Technologies within the UK for the first time.  Previously, these latest generation tyres were sent to Michelin factories in mainland Europe.

The first tyres incorporating Michelin Durable Technologies were launched in the UK and Ireland in 2006.  Manufacturing quality retread tyres is a fundamental part of Michelin’s commercial vehicle tyre offer.  One of the primary reasons fleets specify Michelin tyres is for the whole life cost advantages of a quality casing which is designed to offer at least four lives: new tyre, regroove of the new tyre, Remix, regroove of the Remix).
