BRANDON, Fla. (Oct. 25, 2001)—Terry Bowman has joined Sure Tire Co. as national sales manager. He will work with the cooperative's members to increase their participation in the Summit and Remington brand programs and secure new members for any open territory, the company said.
Longtime industry veteran Mr. Bowman left Hoosier Performance Tire in March, prior to which he variously held sales and marketing management positions with Continental Tire North America, Jetzon Tire & Rubber Co., and Kumho USA Inc.
Sure Tire also announced the roll-out of five new tire lines within its Remington brand offerings—one of which, the Remington Emerald LX, carries a UTQG of 700-A-B and an 80,000-mile limited treadwear warranty—along with some expanded sizes and styling upgrades for three other lines within its Summit and Remington brands.
In addition, the company said it is consolidating its four existing warehouses into two—one in Stockbridge, Ga., serving members on the East Coast, the other in Victorville, Calif., for those on the West Coast.
The Brandon-based cooperative is owned by 30 tire distributors and has exclusive marketing rights to the Remington, Summit and Heritage brands.
