Kwan Tong, Hong Kong S.A.R., January 17, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Rubber Research, Inc. (RRI), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Rubber Research Group, announces that is has entered discussions with the city of Ogilvie, Minnesota, USA for the city to provide revenue bonds on the manufacturing plant it recently purchased in Ogilvie. The plant, which consists of 2.4 acres of land and three buildings, was the former home of Hi-Tek Rubber, Inc.’s manufacturing operations. Rubber Research, Inc. (http://www.InternationalTireSolutions.com) signed an agreement to purchase the plant, as well as Hi-Tek, in December 2012.
In 2009, after the property was sold to an independent investor, a fire damaged most of the structures. RRI has contracted with Mularoni & Company Architecture, LLC to provide integrated project delivery services in relation to the renovation and reconstruction of the building facilities. RRI and Mularoni have been working with various government agencies in the area to solidify a public/private relationship to create new jobs. The relationship is also expected to facilitate government financing to assist RRI in the development of the new facility which, when completed, will once again produce the innovative rubber roofing products that Hi-Tek was known for.
Gary Ziehr, CEO of Rubber Research, Inc. (http://www.InternationalTireSolutions.com) issued a joint statement noting that the revenue bond issue “will enhance our newly-formed team dedicated to environmentally sound and cost effective scrap rubber remediation as well as make a significantly positive contribution to Ogilvie’s local economy.”
