ASA Tire Systems' Bailout Program Continues to Flourish

NASHUA, NH (April 1, 2009) - ASA Tire Systems announced today that the response to the $1M Tire Dealer Bailout Program continues to grow at an overwhelming rate and monies have been awarded to tire dealers across the country.

Nationwide, nearly 150 independent tire dealerships have submitted grant requests and are currently being considered for funding. Although many applications are still being processed, roughly 15% of the fund has already been awarded only three weeks into the program. Dealers who are interested in applying for funding still have time, and are encouraged to visit the company's website and fill out an application. The monies are in the form of a grant, and do not have to be paid back to the company. Tire dealerships of any size who are interested in taking advantage of the offer to improve their technology infrastructure are eligible.

Wayne Croswell, president of ASA Tire Systems, says, "I am ecstatic with the early response to our Tire Dealer Bailout Program. We have received almost one hundred and fifty applications and they continue to come in on a daily basis. I am humbled by the various applicant's situations and hardships across the United States. When we decided to launch this bailout program, we hoped we could get the American Spirit to band together and rise again, and help get our industry out of these difficult times. I think this program has awakened that great American Spirit within our industry, and I am convinced more than ever that together we will play a significant part in the economic recovery. I am glad to see that others in the industry have stepped forward to play their part as well. I hope to see more companies do whatever they can to contribute to this economic recovery."

Dealers can apply for the funds via the ASA Tire Systems website https://www.asatire.com/bailout by filling out a form, or by contacting an ASA representative.
