“The trade show was filled to capacity, and the interest in retreading was at an all-time high,” said Ron Elliott - PRE-Q Galgo /Marketing Manager. “School systems and school bus contractors are like everyone else in that they feel the effects of the limited supply of new tyres, labour force issues and high fuel costs, and are looking for ways to save. The number of attendees asking us about retreading for the first time was greater than I have ever seen at a school bus show. We had an attendee tell us he hasn’t retreaded in 40 years, but after we explained the technological advances in retreading since then, he proceeded to place a large order. I want to thank David Stevens/TRIB, Ronnie Luster/Kings Tire Service, and Will Eells/Wilson County Tire for their help and support at the show.”
