Liberty Tire acquires Able Tire

Liberty Tire, a tire recycling business, has acquired Texas-based Able Tire Company. Liberty and Able Tire’s merger represents a partnering in the Texas and Oklahoma scrap tire market.

With the acquisition, Liberty Tire will take advantage of efficiencies while retaining the company’s leadership team. Through the company’s leadership, expertise and innovation, Able Tire established a paperless manifest system, a cradle-to-grave tire tracking system that includes the filing of paperless records with the Texas State environmental authorities.

Liberty helps customers meet their environmental goals by collecting and recycling nearly 25 percent of America’s annual scrap tire production through a network of 14 facilities.
