STAUNTON, Va. (Jan. 22, 2014) — Federated Auto Parts Inc. has hired automotive industry veteran Roy Kent as its chief strategy officer and president of new business development.
Mr. Kent worked for a number of years at Federal-Mogul Corp., most recently as vice president of wholesale distribution, Federated said. In his new role with Federated, he will be based in Michigan.
“Roy will be working with us in a number of areas including membership development, vendor relations and strategic planning,” said Larry Pavey, president of Federated. “We look forward to reintroducing Roy to our members and vendor partners in his new role with Federated.”
Titan International and the United Steelworkers union have petitioned the U.S. International Trade Commission and U.S. Department of Commerce seeking relief from OTR tire imports from China, India and Sri Lanka. What’s your opinion?
|I wholeheartedly support their action – something needs to be done.||
|I think it’s a bad idea that could inevitably tie the hands of domestic tire makers.||
|I oppose any duties against tire importers—they only raise costs for distributors and make it harder to obtain inventory.||
|I’m kind of on the fence and not sure what’s right, but need more information before deciding.||
|I don’t really care whether or not relief is granted.||
