Company Profile

Kal Tire knows earthmover tire service better than anyone in the world. Operating with a team of more than 1600 members globally, we’ve built a reputation for innovation, reliability, and outstanding service.

With the constant change in commodity prices, mining operations must strive to maximize the full potential of the equipment they operate—including the tires that ultimately carry the load. With over 40 years experience at the forefront of the large tire industry, our objective remains simple: to deliver incomparable value.

We achieve this by providing a fully customizable array of services to fit your needs including tire supply and forecasting, fitting and maintenance, site management and design, as well as 24-hour service and training.

A division of Kal Tire, the largest commercial tire dealer in North America, The Kal Tire Mining Tire Group was originally founded in the early 1970's to service mine sites in British Columbia, Canada. We have since expanded to over 150 mine sites in North America, Latin America, Europe, Africa, and Australia. We are one of the largest manufacturers of retread tires globally, with two factories in Canada, one in the United Kingdom, and one in Ghana, West Africa.

Information technology has become central to our global success in mining services. Constant innovation is our passion; whether it’s designing a better tool, improving safety procedures, or boosting efficiency through digital technology. We promote collaboration and teamwork through globally consistent best practices and tools such a multi-lingual intranet.

In addition to mine sites, our services can also be found at ports, construction projects, quarries, steel mills, and sugar-cane plantations. We operate with the highest safety standards in a vast array of terrains and climates and are confident we can meet your tire needs, large or small.

Our Aims

On the wall of every Kal Tire office can be found a list of seven guiding principles. They are known as the Aims, and they are the heart of Kal Tire culture. The power of the Aims lies in their clarity: put the customer first, treat people with respect, work hard, and reward performance.


To provide customers with a level of quality and value, of both service and products, that exceeds their expectations and surpasses the competition.


To give every member of the team the quality leadership, training and management necessary to provide quality and value to the customer. Our team members will work safely and will have the ambition, enthusiasm and energy to be productive, efficient, and contribute to an upbeat atmosphere in the workplace.


To achieve a fair profit in all of our operations.


To expand our company in a deliberate and balanced fashion for the purpose of strengthening our ability to serve the customer and provide a solid future for our people. However, our rate of expansion will not be beyond our ability to finance or manage to a consistent standard of quality.


To conduct ourselves with honesty and integrity, being conscious of our image and with modest respect for our successes. Our image is defined by the conduct of each of us.


To build long-term relationships with our suppliers based on competitiveness, value, and mutual respect of objectives.


To continually improve every aspect of our company, recognizing our responsibility to our customers, each other, our communities and the environment.
