TRIB launches new Web site
The Tire Retread & Repair Information Bureau (TRIB) has launched phase one of its newly redesigned Web site at www.retread.org.
"A massive amount of work has gone into TRIB's Web site redesign to accurately and professionally represent our industry, as well as making it easier for users to find all the great content we offer," says TRIB Managing Director David Stevens. "We're excited about the launch of the new Web site, but this is only the first phase in its development and we continue to work on further enhancements to the site that will be launched in the coming weeks."
Some of the major features of the new site include:
* A full Resources section that includes: a Retread Tire Buyer's Guide (in which members may edit their company profiles to better promote themselves to prospective buyers), Retreading & Repair Articles, Government Studies concerning retreading, a Calendar of industry events, and a collection of links relevant to the retread industry.
* A simple way for users to look up DOT codes and find retreaders.
* A safe and secure online store for the purchase of materials from TRIB, including TRIB's Industry Recommended Practices CD.
* A Members-Only section that allows for much broader development of member profiles and offers community-based tools to connect members geographically or through similar product interests. Members will also have access to Forums, Blogs, Photo Galleries, and can even create their own web pages within TRIB's website.
For the second phase of development, TRIB is focused on delivering a mobile version of the site and integrating more social media tools to further broaden its reach for members and the public at large.
