Desser Tire & Rubber Co. Announces Several Tire Qualifications for Regional Aircraft and Overseas Expansion Plans

Desser Tire & Rubber Co.'s affiliate, Aero WBS announces its qualification for retreading Canadair 200, 700, 900 series and Embraer 135 and 145 series aircraft tires, as well as forming an investigative committee for opening a FAA/EASA approved factory outside of the United States.

"We are pleased to be able to offer our retreading services for the complete family of Canadair and Embraer series of Regional Aircraft," according to Steven Chlavin the company's president. "This makes us only the second approved source outside of the OEM to retread the complete range of aircraft. These aircraft fitments go nicely with our plans to double capacity and offerings in 2011. With our increasing book of clients outside of the United States and the recent large increase in new tire prices, we find it prudent to investigate expansion opportunities in several key markets overseas."
