American Tire Recycling Group (ATRG) located in Miami, FL, is expanding its facility and making some big changes to its tire recycling line of equipment. ATR is a producer of rubber products including tire derived fuel (TDF), rubber mulch, crumb rubber and rubber used in rubberized asphalt concrete (RAC). The company was started as a collaborative effort of three Latin American groups looking to make a positive environmental impact in South Florida.
Over the past four years, the company has significantly increased its tire collection market going from 7,000 to 28,000 tires per day. They have achieved significant growth and high level of success within the rubber products marketplace. However, limiting their growth was their existing equipment. Barry Kauffman, one of the Principles stated. “In order to expand our markets and increase our distribution channels, American Tire had to invest in new equipment that would produce the end products that the market demands at increased volume, lower costs and less downtime.” Kauffman adds, “The equipment has to be dependable and be supported by a world class equipment provider.”
