QUINCY, Ill. (Aug. 26, 2004) — Titan Tire Corp., a subsidiary of Titan International Inc., has been awarded two multi-year contracts to supply trucks used by the U.S. Army.
The contracts—which have a total estimated value of $40 million—were awarded by TACOM (Tank Automotive Command), Quincy-based Titan said. They cover anticipated requirements for the next five years for tires primarily used on 2.5- and 5-ton military trucks.
“We are proud to continue our tradition of supplying products to support the U.S. military and are appreciative of the confidence placed in Titan,” said Maurice Taylor Jr., president and CEO. “This is further evidence of Titan's recognized expertise in the off-highway sector.”
