One of the things we love to do for visitors to our web site is to arrange tours of retread plants. The Retread Tire Association recently had the pleasure of arranging a visit for John Birkett and his family with one of our members, Premier Bandag in Princeton, Indiana. Here’s what Mr. Birkett had to say afterward.
Thank you very much for putting us in touch with Mr. Elliott. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and tour yesterday. Mr. Elliott warmly welcomed us to the plant. We started with a very enlightening conversation in his office about proper tire care and maintenance and some of the history and application of retread tires. The tour of the plant was not only interesting and fun, but also deeply educational concerning the nature and reliability of today’s retread tires. Mr. Elliott obviously loves what he does and is excellent at his trade. It was well worth the hour-and-a-half trip to Princeton. On behalf of my father, son and myself, thank you!
