CARY, N.C. (Feb. 21, 2014) — Atlantic Tire & Service picked up the 2013 Better Business Bureau (BBB) of Eastern North Carolina Torch Award in the large business category.

“We are so honored to receive this award. This recognition truly speaks to our team’s dedication to creating an ethically organized and customer-service-oriented business,” said Anthony Blackman, president of Atlantic Tire & Service.
“Our hard work has paid off, and we look forward to continuing to serve the community.”
The dealership has won various awards in recent years, including the Blue Seal of Excellence Award; the Cary Chamber’s Employer of the Year Award; Business of the Year Award and Community Service Award; the Morrisville Chamber’s Business of the Year Award; Cary News’ “Best Place for Automotive Repair;” and Cary Magazine’s Maggy Award for “Best Mechanic in Western Wake.”
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.||
