TIA meets with European retreading group

Nov. 24, 2008

The Tire Industry Association (TIA) and Bipaver, Europe's largest retreading organization, met for the first time at the recent Specialty Equipment Market Association Show.

Specifically, Bipaver officials met with members of TIA's Global Council. They discussed tire aging, rolling resistance, tread depth minimums and other topics.

The meeting was the first "of what will hopefully be many future discussions where American tire industry professionals can exchange ideas, best practices and lessons learned with our international colleagues," says TIA Executive Vice President Roy Littlefield.
