New England dealers honor Malerba

May 12, 2005

Bob Malerba, former owner of Meriden, Conn.-based Malerba's Silver City Tire Co. Inc., has received the New England Tire and Service Association's (NETSA) President's Award.

Malerba was honored for his 30 years of service to the tire industry.

"He is an inspiration to his peers," says NETSA President Spencer Carruthers.

Malerba, who is extensively involved with the Tire Industry Association, sold his dealership to Berlin Bandag Inc. one year ago.

He now serves as Berlin Bandag's vice president.
