OKLAHOMA CITY—Love’s Travel Stops has opened a tire retread plant and distribution center in El Reno, Okla. The 220,000-square-foot facility doubles the size of the one it replaces in Grand Prairie, Texas, allowing Love’s Truck Care and Speedco to increase capacity and better serve customers.
Love’s has seven plants across the country and is in the process of further expanding its retread plant and distribution center capacity to increase the company’s commitment to ensuring customer access to tires and parts. About 50 jobs were added to Canadian County because of the plant and distribution facility.
“The new facility in El Reno is a great location to serve our most valuable customers and develop and distribute products to the surrounding towns and states,” said Steve Phillips, director of tire sales and plant operations for Love’s, in a press release. “This location allows us to provide greater coverage, so our customers can get back on the road quickly and safely.”
The Love’s retread process encompasses a comprehensive casing inspection regimen with the latest technology and a rigorous manufacturing process to ensure a reliable and consistent product. The quality retread tire is complemented by an innovative and transparent casing repair program, consistent with a fleet’s specifications and a customized reconditioning/mounted wheel program, all designed to meet the unique needs of fleet customers.
