Prinx Chengshan Tire has appointed Samuel Felberbaum president of Prinx Chengshan Tire North America. A 30-year tire industry veteran, Felberbaum most recently served as director of sales for Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp.'s south division.
The U.S. truck tire market looked much different at the end of last year than it does now. Through the end of 2019, 18.7 million medium truck tires had been shipped through the replacement downward trajectory, but numbers were still at respectable levels. And tonnage was increasing, albeit slightly. Then, not too long later, COVID-19 hit. And to say that things have not been the same since is an understatement.
