Ecore Acquisition Aids in Raw Material Procurement

Ecore International has acquired 360 Tire Recycling Group, a move that will aid in the procurement of raw materials for the company’s flooring and surfacing products.

The purchase also strengthens Ecore’s position in tire and buffings collections, and elevates both companies as leaders in the world’s transition to a circular rubber economy.

“360 Tire’s commitment to providing an environmentally responsible, one-stop recycling effort for its customers aligns perfectly with Ecore’s vision of a planet free of rubber waste,” says Ecore CEO Art Dodge.

The largest converter of reclaimed tire rubber in North America, Ecore has been transforming rubber waste for more than 40 years, upcycling in excess of 100 million pounds annually. The company uses recycled rubber to create more than 1,500 different products, including high-performance flooring, pour-in-place playgrounds, athletic fields, mulch trails and more.

360 Tire Recycling Group has been a top provider and recycler in the truck stop and retreading industry for 14 years, and is considered an expert in sourcing and handling tires at the end of their life. As part of Ecore, the group will continue to operate under its current trade name, offering multiple touch points, including scrap tire rehauling and processing, buffing collection and casing, and used tire sales, all while providing customers with a sustainable, circular process for converting reclaimed rubber into sustainable products.

“Synergistically, Ecore-360 Tire Recycling Group will be able to better serve customers with more efficient transportation times through our state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Ozark, Ala.,” says Dodge. “Joining forces with such a major player in the truck tire supply chain also expands our partnership opportunities with retreaders and scrap tire generators to form sustainable, closed-loop solutions.”
