Geoff Doster, promoted earlier in 2022 to president and COO of TBC Brands and TBC International, said the wholesaler is introducing tire lines this year to meet the growing demand for larger rim-diameter tires, last-mile delivery vehicle tires and premium specialty tires.
How would you describe business thus far in 2022?
The replacement tire industry continues to remain fundamentally sound. As reported by the U.S. Tire Manufacturers Association, tire shipments showed an increase year-to-date April over last year, balancing the levels of supply and demand.
How would you describe customer confidence in your market?
While the gross domestic product shrank through the first quarter of the year, we remain steadfast in delivering on our initiatives and projects to serve our customers to the best of our ability.
We have continued to provide products and enhancements to programs further building confidence in our dedication and commitment to deliver on our value proposition of quality, performance and affordability.
