T.M.A. (Tire Marketers Association) customers were surprised to read an article in your Aug. 7 issue in which T.M.A. was described as a ``floundering'' group. With sales exceeding last year's performance in excess of 35 percent for the first six months of this year, we felt a more ``complimentary'' description of our progress would have been more accurate and appropriate.
With Laramie Tire Distributors Inc. as our new parent company, we now have the financial support for future growth and expansion.
Laramie's participation in the Sonic program will assure us of nationwide distribution through company warehouses and independent tire dealers.
We are currently discussing supply opportunities with foreign suppliers for medium truck, farm and implement tires. T.M.A. recognizes the need to broaden our product offerings to satisfy our customers' needs.
Any prospective accounts interested in discussing Sonic are encouraged to call me at (800) 428-6123, or fax (813) 535-6693.
