Sheriff Ronnie Sprinkle visited TREAD Corporation located in East Park Industrial Center on Friday, Feb. 15 to receive a special type of equipment designed and constructed in Botetourt County.
The Type 3 Explosive Storage Container is manufactured entirely by the TREAD Corporation. This container will serve to store and protect sensitive equipment classified by the Department of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
Sprinkle was impressed with the construction and remarked of the high quality of workmanship evident throughout the container. TREAD spokesman Bill Teetseil proudly exclaimed, “Our products are second to none.”
TREAD Corporation was founded in 1957 and experienced a rich and successful history of growth and product diversification, eventually serving the mining, quarry construction and law enforcement industries with bulk explosives handling equipment.
