Titan International Inc. is imposing another price increase on its Titan-branded ag, industrial and construction tires made and sold in North America.

The increase will vary by product category, the company says, but will average "approximately 5%."

It will be effective Sept. 1, 2017.

“This increase will allow Titan to recover increased material and production costs while keeping the Titan brand very competitive in the marketplace,” says Paul Hawkins, vice president of aftermarket sales at Titan.

In April Titan increased the prices of both its Titan- and Goodyear-branded farm tires, by up to 8%. According to the company's July 19 announcement, this second increase does not apply to its Goodyear-branded farm tires.

For more information, tire dealers are encouraged to contact their local Titan territory sales manager.
