About Eagle International

In 1991, Tire Resource Systems approached Brehmer Mfg., Inc. with the concept for a line of machines that would make tire recycling and disposal easier. Out of this partnership, Eagle International was born and the first tire cutters were built. The first patent was filed in 1994 for Eagle’s first machine, the Tru-Cut.

Since then, Eagle International has been a heavy hitter in the tire-recycling industry. Boasting a lineup of machines that can handle ATV tires through 59/80R63 mining tires. The President of Brehmer Mfg., Joe Brehmer, has been involved in the design and construction of every machine to pass through the small manufacturing facility in Lyons, Nebraska, USA.

“We were able to find our niche in the world of tire recycling,” states Joe Brehmer, president of Eagle International. “By developing equipment to get tires from the scrap pile to the shredder or through pyrolysis.”

A driving component in Brehmer’s involvement is the increasing number of tires that are disposed of annually. He added, “With over 3 million tires discarded in the U.S. alone, I decided there was something I could do to help alleviate some of that pressure on our landfills. Manufacturing the tire recycling equipment made sense for our facility, plus I enjoy designing equipment that can have a positive impact on the environment. We had the opportunity to design equipment that was the first of its kind. It has been very rewarding.”

Brehmer Mfg., acquired Eagle International in 2017 and has continued to make improvements to its designs and build relationships across the globe. To date, you can find Eagle machines in 28 countries around the globe with dealership representation in 13 countries. Use our Dealer Locator to find a certified Eagle International dealer near you.
