MIAMI (May 28, 2014) — Tire Group International Inc. (TGI) has signed a supply agreement with Wabash National Corp., a North American diversified industrial manufacturer and producer of semi-trailers and liquid transportation systems.
After a series of tests conducted by independent auditors as well as Wabash National's own quality assurance group, TGI said Lafayette, Ind.-based Wabash “endorsed TGI's products and capabilities for support of its customers across the U.S. TGI's impressive brand portfolio offers a wide product range. Wabash National customers will now have an expanded option of high value products for original equipment and replacement tire offerings.”
TGI said it also will supply the Industrial Purchasing Consortium (IPC), managed by Wabash National on behalf of the IPC member companies. The IPC provides its members—consisting of manufacturing, distributorship and other industrial companies—with incremental savings and cost reduction opportunities through economies of scale in the procurement of raw materials and component parts.
