TIA Partners With ASA to Offer Free Web Page to Members

BOWIE, MD (May 1, 2008) — The Tire Industry Association (TIA) today announced that all of its members are eligible to receive a professionally designed web page for free. This new service is the result of a partnership between TIA and ASA Tire Systems (ASA), a well-known supplier of software tools to the tire industry.

The service includes customizing the color of the page and spaces on the page for contact information and rotating color images. Additionally, members’ web pages will be built for search engine optimization; they will also have the ability to obtain a customized e-mail address and will receive assistance with registering their company’s domain name. “As time goes on, more and more tire dealers are finding that having a web page is no longer an option; it’s a necessity. TIA, in conjunction with ASA, is proud to offer our members the ability to have a professional web page at no cost,” said TIA Executive Vice President Roy Littlefield. “This is just one of the many valuable services TIA offers its members, and we will continue to expand our services to better serve the needs of our membership.” TIA members can find out more about this service by contacting Erik Croswell at 866-210-6717.

Note: a color image of a sample web page is available. Contact Richard Porter, at 301-430-7280, ext. 137 or at rporter@tireindustry.org.

About TIA

TIA is an international association representing all segments of the tire industry, including those that manufacture, repair, recycle, sell, service or use new or retreaded tires, and also those suppliers or individuals who furnish equipment, material or services to the industry. The Tire Industry Association (TIA) has a history that spans more than 80 years and includes several name changes.

Originally known as the National Tire Dealers & Retreaders Association (NTDRA), the organization gave birth over the years to the American Retreaders Association (ARA) and the Tire Association of North America (TANA). ARA changed its name to the International Tire & Rubber Association (ITRA) and merged with TANA in 2002 to form the current Tire Industry Association (TIA), which now represents every interest in the tire industry.
