Fort Mill, S.C, August 4, 2023 — This past June, Bill Morgan Tire in partnership with Continental Tire announced the opening of the first retread facility in Lexington, Kentucky in 40 years.

“After entertaining multiple retreading companies, we finally decided to align ourselves with Continental Tire’s ContiLifeCycle™ process,” said Bill Morgan III. “Being able to offer our customers a premium retread and a new tire that matched up to the retread was of utmost importance to us here at Bill Morgan Tire. Continental has many superior technology products that give us the competitive edge when we go to market. The entire process from the design to training was of the highest quality and has made the choice to partner with Continental Tire a great one!”
