H& H Industries Invests in TRM Buffer


Ohio based retreader H&H Industries is making a major investment in advanced buffing and tread cutting technology by selecting TRM’s “Eagle 51” buffer and tread grooving machine as part of its strategy to be a leader in the OTR retreading segment. 

Investment in Eagle 51 for OTR Segment

“Over the last decade, and especially in the past four years, our business has continued to develop and grow to allow us to reinvest into our company. As we move into a period of a planned expansion, we know the "Eagle 51" will allow us to increase production while maintaining our high standards of quality and performance, and stage us for the next part of our investment. We’re excited to include the Eagle in our manufacturing process and confident about the reliability of the equipment and the TRM / Shamrock team structure.  We look forward to showing our business partners our commitment to them and the industry.” said Noah Hickman president of H&H.

The “Eagle 51” machine will allow H&H to retread tyres of up to 51” with the highest quality finish, thanks to the precision and speed of the 3-axis automated hot blade groover system.  Installation is planned for the third quarter of 2020. 

Both companies were exhibiting at TIA’s OTR Conference in Palm Springs, CA, February 19 – 22, 2020.
