Titan Tire, Graham Tire help Iowa farmers
Titan Tire Corp., a subsidiary of Titan International Inc., recently participated in a Des Moines, Iowa, radio contest and provided two gifts of $1,500 worth of tires. Graham Tire Des Moines Commercial delivered the tire prizes to two Iowa farmers.
“Listeners were asked to nominate someone they know who needed a hand up instead of a hand out,” says Skip Sagar, Titan’s manager of sales for Iowa. “We were looking for people who were stretched and could use a pat on the back.”
Harold Mitchell from Russell, Iowa, sent in a letter nominating his friend Jerry Harvey from Promise City, Iowa. Both men were selected as the co-winners of the Wishes Do Come True contest conducted by Iowa radio station WHO Radio. Local Titan dealer Graham Tire Des Moines Commercial delivered the tires to the winners’ farms in Southern Iowa. Sagar stated both men were very thankful for being chosen.
“Titan is very appreciative of the work farmers do in feeding this great nation and the way they take care of each other,” Sagar says. “People all across Iowa, just like the rest of the nation, are experiencing some difficulties for no fault of their own. This contest helps show the Iowa spirit, helping your neighbor.”
Graham Tire is number 41 on the 2010 MTD 100 list of the nation’s largest independent tire store chains, with 28 total locations, eight of them retail stores, three commercial-only outlets and 17 combination retail-commercial locations. To view the list, click here.
