Bridgestone will debut the Bandag Virtual Plant Tour at WasteExpo 2024, taking place May 7-9 in Las Vegas, that will give attendees a behind-the-scenes look at the tire retreading process.

The virtual experience will transport viewers inside a Bandag manufacturing plant to demonstrate the safety, reliability, and positive environmental characteristics of retreaded tires.

“The waste and recycling industry has long been a leader in innovation and a space to promote and advance sustainability-focused technologies,” said Brian Goldstine, President, Retread Solutions, Bridgestone Mobility Solutions. “Through our new virtual experience, Bridgestone can demonstrate the technology, testing and time that goes into producing every Bandag retreaded tire and educate fleets on the importance of more cost-effective and eco-friendly tire solutions, regardless of their location.”

The Bandag Virtual Plant Tour is an internet browser-based experience that provides a step-by-step walkthrough of Bandag’s retreading process for customers who are unable to visit a Bandag retreading facility in person. In demonstrating to key retread customers at WasteExpo, Bridgestone will also emphasize the importance of retreading in helping fleets reach their sustainability goals. In 2023, Bandag retreads are estimated to have saved 100 million gallons of oil and kept nearly 7 million tires out of the waste stream. The Bandag Virtual Plant Tour will be widely available for customers later this summer and accessible on BridgestoneMarketing.com.

Premium offerings

In addition to the virtual Bandag tour, Bridgestone’s booth at WasteExpo will showcase the company’s premium tire offerings, training platforms and advanced digital tire solutions available to waste and recycling fleets:

  • Premium Tires—A full range of premium tires will be on display including the Greatec M847, the company’s wide-based all-position radial tire engineered with a deep tread to enhance traction and longevity.
