Boulder City, Nevada - Amerityre Corp., a manufacturer of flat-proof polyurethane tyres, has secured an order from a "major OEM manufacturer of track systems for Utility Terrain Vehicles" via its Canadian distributor, Flat Free Tires Inc, an 8 Dec company statement said.
Using Amerityre's PU tyres, "improves reliability and provides maximum shock absorption for improved ride quality," the company said. The product has been successfully tested and is now in production, the statement said, adding that the company's original sales forecast has doubled twice due to the "greater than expected" acceptance of the new track system.
The company estimates that usage for the track system will grow to around 100 000 tyres annually over the next couple of years, adding that it is also aiming to apply the system to other recreational vehicles.
The order for the track system, Amerityre said, is a result of its 2010 sales and marketing plan to increase sales of its PU foam tyre products internationally. (RD)
