LEESBURG, Va. (May 22, 2014) — The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) has declared June 9-15 as National Automotive Service Professionals Week.
Launched in 2005, National Automotive Service Professionals Week is mean to honor the commitment and dedication of automotive, truck and collision technicians, parts specialists and other support professionals serving the automotive industry, ASE said. This marks the ninth consecutive year that ASE will continue the recognition.
“ASE created National Automotive Service Professionals Week to recognize the men and women who service and maintain the highly complex vehicles upon which we depend for our daily transportation,” said Tim Zilke, ASE president and CEO.
“The training and education necessary to properly diagnose and repair today’s sophisticated vehicle fleet requires a significant level of knowledge, skill and dedication, and ASE is proud to help recognize these individuals for their commitment to their customers and their profession.”
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.||
