More business has just come to Houston, creating job opportunities for Houstonians across the city and its communities. Due to an increase in demand, a new tire retreading plant has recently opened in Houston by Snider Tire, Inc. and Michelin Retread Technologies.
The new plant is located at 603 Northpark Central Drive near George Bush Intercontinental Airport, and will supply four of Texas' Snider commercial locations in Conroe, Dallas/Prairie, Beaumont, and Houston.
John Snider, president of Snider Tire, had this to say: "We have seen an increase in demand from trucking fleets for emergency roadside service and Michelin Retread Technologies tire products." He also added, "[the] new facility will ensure that we can meet the demand with additional production, as well as timely retread delivery to our commercial locations in Texas."
This new plant will cut delivery time to these locations by over 20 percent, according to Snider Tire. This will ensure more efficient operations, lower costs,and more jobs for people in the Houston area. It should also provide a nice boost to the automotive industry within Houston.
