An estimated 694 million metric tons (Mt) of total construction aggregates was produced and shipped for consumption in the United States in the second quarter of 2021, an increase of 7% compared with that of the second quarter of 2020.
According to Rock Products magazine, the five leading states, in descending order of production for consumption, were Texas, California, Missouri, Florida and Pennsylvania. Their combined total production for consumption in the second quarter of 2021 increased by 5% to 200 Mt and represented 29% of the U.S. total.
To help our dealers and OTR tire customers take advantage, we are pleased to announce a special September Program for Off-the-Road (OTR) and Industrial (IND) tire dealers across the nation. If you are a Double Coin dealer, ask your sales manager about this program. If you operate heavy equipment, ask your Double Coin dealer about the Double Coin OTR tire line-up.
To support our September Program:
The coronavirus pandemic negatively impacted the tire industry in the US, but we are seeing a steady recovery this year. With plans for increased infrastructure spending by the US government in the coming years, we are doing our part with this program to meet the growing demand for OTR and IND tires by competitively pricing them and making inline adjustments with our tires currently available in the market.
We hope this program strengthens our large dealer network and helps our dealers grow their businesses, as well as helps aggregates, construction and mining companies lower their tire operating costs.
Double Coin offers a comprehensive line of OTR and IND tires that are backed by a limited manufacturer’s warranty. A few of the tire lines include the REM-1, REM-2, REM-3, REM-9, REM-10, REM-6 industrial tire line and the REM-8 mobile crane tire. We offer a wide-range of other multi-purpose tires manufactured at the company’s state-of-the-art facility in Thailand.
