August MTD looks at retreaders vs. recession
Eight months into 2009, the retread business remains sluggish. Lack of freight movement, anemic tire consumption and excess inventory continue to squeeze the nation's independent retreaders.
What are retreaders doing to fight back? Find out in the August 2009 edition of Modern Tire Dealer, available soon!
"This is the worst business environment I've ever seen," says Garry Heintschel, vice president of Heintschel Tire & Service Inc. in Texarkana, Texas. "We have several customers who don't know if they will be in business one week from now, and they've been in business for 50 years."
In the August MTD, Heintschel and several other retreaders will share what they're doing to control costs and streamline their operations in the face of the worst economic climate since The Great Depression. Don't miss it!
