Taskmaster Components Announces Exclusive Tire Partnership
FRANKLIN, Tenn. - Taskmaster Components, announces an exclusive distributor agreement with Diamondback Specialty Trailer tires. The Diamondback brand is manufactured by Triangle Tire, one of China’s largest publicly traded tire manufacturers.
“Passing the stringent OEM requirements is certainly a validation of Triangle Tire’s longtime commitment to developing and manufacturing high-quality specialty trailer tires,” said Triangle Tire USA CEO Manny Cicero. “The fact that Triangle Tire is one of the most environmentally-conscious tire manufacturers in the world was also a major selling point for Taskmaster Components.”
The OEM customers of Taskmaster Components, headquartered in Mount Pleasant, Texas, include manufacturers of utility trailers, recreation vehicles, livestock trailers, and over-the-road dry van trailers. The company says it utilizes Just-in-Time Logistics to deliver cosmetically and structurally perfect tire and wheel assemblies to manufacturers.
“Diamondback STR tires are high-quality radials built by a well-known, well-funded, and progressive company,” said Taskmaster Components CEO Tom Walker. “The Diamondback is another exciting tire for us that passes FMVSS139, has no tire ash added as filler, and allows us to continue our mission of offering high-quality products at great prices. We have great respect for and confidence in Manny Cicero and Lin Bin. Our relationship with Lin Bin goes back to 2001.”
A representative for Triangle Tire USA, said the Diamondback STR line-up for Taskmaster Components will feature a total of nine sizes in two tread patterns, including an all-steel S.T. tire for heavier trailers.
