"Scrap tire should not be seen as a waste material to be disposed of. Scrap tires should be viewed as a resource to be managed for the benefit of the Environment, the community, and the economy. The true recyclers, who deserve all the credit, are our customers”
Shane Olson, President, Shercom Industries Inc.
Shane Olson, co-founder of Shercom Industries (est 1993), has been recycling tires for nearly 25 years. When Shercom was founded, the company had no technology, no products, and no markets. The only thing Shercom had was an idea; tire rubber is a highly engineered raw material that should not be going to waste in the landfills. The initial years were tough. Through hard work, ingenuity and determination, eventually the foundation was laid for Shercom to grow.
With a background in agriculture, focus changed from harvesting grain to harvesting tires. “The crop is always good, and we don’t care about the weather”. As the industry grew, so did the market place. Many of the recycled rubber products on the market place today were first developed by Shercom Industries. Rubber paving was pioneered by Shercom in Canada. It has since grown to be a nationwide Industry.
Last year we recycled over 40 million lbs. of tires. Not 1 lb. went to the landfill as waste. This year, we inaugurated a new, bigger capacity, and more advanced plant. All Shercom is doing is steering the shape of scrap tires industry into value added products.
