A new business venture is in operation at the Kingman Airport Industrial Park. The Oklahoma based Love’s Travel Stops and Country Stores is retreading tires for eighteen wheelers in space that also serves as a distribution center.

The manager of the facility, Angel Hernandez, and his supervisor Steve Phillips, have not responded to emails and telephone calls seeking information about the enterprise. Hernandez had no comment when approached at the retread center and directed inquiry to corporate media relations.

Two public relations officials identified on the company website did not return phone calls seeking information.

The Kingman Airport Authority said Love’s is operating out of 55,000 square feet of space within the 450,000 square foot building managed by Big Industrial, LLC. The KAA said Love’s first occupied the facility in July, began operating in mid-August and currently employs 20-25 people.
