If you're a mining or construction company, it's time to take a tough look at your tires in a tough environment predicted for this year!
The mining industry will be flat at best this year, according to experts. The coal mining industry continues to decline — down 9% last year and expected to be down another 14% this year. Mining companies in all sectors are investing in technology to decrease tire cost per hour and minimize downtime.
On the construction front, the Dodge Data & Analytics' 2020 Construction Outlook predicts that U.S. construction starts will slip 4% from the 2019 estimated level of activity, while single-family housing starts are expected to dip 3%.
More and more mining, aggregates and construction operations are finding that Double Coin OTR tires are helping them reduce their tire operating costs in these challenging times. This new video states the case very well.
