AKRON (March 17, 2014) — Myers Tire Supply is holding its first national sales meeting March 17-22 in Cincinnati.
The Akron-based tools, supplies and equipment subsidiary of Myers Industries Inc., is hosting 51 supplier partners along with its entire nationwide team of 170 sales professionals and sales managers, national accounts sales team and the international sales team covering the Central American markets and more than 80 countries worldwide.
The company’s mini-trade show will feature fabricator, shop owner and TV host Bryan Fuller, who has been featured on several TV shows including “Two Guys Garage” and “Overhaulin'” and is now displaying his talents at Fuller Hot Rods. Mr. Fuller is representing OTC and Robinair diagnostic tools and equipment at the show.
Myers, in its 81st year of operation, said it “will be training our entire sales team on key products and services important to our customers. Our goal is to equip every person throughout our organization with the products and training necessary to be the critical link between our valued suppliers and our customers.”
Among sessions presented to Myers’ team are:
• A discussion on tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS), covering the latest technology in tools, sensors and service kits;
• Hands-on training for the latest in tire changers, wheel balancers, brake lathes, lifts, air compressors and A/C recycling; and
• Wheel weights and internal balancing solutions, including a review of zinc, steel, lead or internal powder tire balancing.
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.||
