New officers take over TRMG

Jan. 1, 2002

A new slate of officers took over the Tread Rubber and Tire Repair Materials Manufacturers' Group (TRMG) today.

Ramey Thompson of Associated Rubber Co. is the new chairman. Jim Osborne of Oliver Rubber Co., a subsidiary of Cooper Tire & Rubber Co., is vice chairman.

Bandamatic's Joe Kilcoyne and Associated Rubber's John Wingert were re-elected secretary and treasurer, respectively, late last year.

TRMG says its major initiative "is to support the promotion of a positive image for the retreading and repair industry and to work closely with trade associations (that) have similar goals."
