AKRON (Sept. 10, 2013) — Covering the global tire industry for the past 30+ years has provided a wealth of experiences — mostly memorable, some forgettable — and numerous encounters with genuine businessmen and -women along the way.
The fact that we're approaching the 800th issue of Tire Business is light years removed from publishing issue No. 1, back in April 1983.
So too are the tools we use to publish — or perhaps more accurately, disseminate — the information we gather and process for each issue.
Introducing a fortnightly news publication to the tire distribution industry was a radical step in 1983, but one that seems matter-of-fact today, when we "publish" a dozen news items daily on our website and Facebook pages before 11 a.m., produce a weekly video newscast and host an increasing array of webinars.
