AKRON (April 1, 2011) — CIMS Inc., an independent tire registration company, is celebrating its 40th year in the tire industry in 2011.
Found by Paul Kruder in 1971, Akron-based CIMS commissioned Bark at the Moon, an advertising firm based in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, to design a new logo celebrating the milestone. The company also is planning a formal commemoration near year-end.
“Paul was so proud of the company and the progress it had made,” said Susan Kruder, Mr. Kruder's widow and president of CIMS. “There aren't many companies who can say that they have not only been in business for 40 years but also have been the industry leader for that period of time, too.”
