April 27, 2013, Greenville, S.C. – Michelin North America, Inc. has
received the Silver Award in the transportation category at the 2013
Edison Awards for its X-Tweel SSL airless radial tire. The award was
presented during the Edison Awards ceremony held at Chicago’s Navy
Pier.

 

The awards, presented in 12 categories, symbolize the persistence and excellence personified by Thomas Alva Edison. To celebrate 26 years of honouring the best in innovation and excellence in the development of new products and services, hundreds of senior executives joined some of the world’s most recognized companies to acknowledge the hard work and commitment of all 2013 Edison Award winners.

The Michelin Tweel airless radial tire is sold for use on skid vehicles used in the construction, landscaping, contracting, refuse/recycling and agricultural industries. The non-pneumatic tire uses traditional radial tire technology, but requires no air – eliminating the risk of a “flat tire”.
