Retread Instead Dear Senator Campaign Holds Planning Meeting

The US-based Retread Instead Campaign recently decided to invite several industry leaders to a round table planning meeting to gain support and resources to supercharge the campaign.

Marangoni Tread N.A., Inc. hosted the meeting at their North American headquarters in Madison, TN, which was attended by representatives from Premier Rubber Company, Tech International, McGriff Tire, Cross Dillon Tire, Marangoni Tread, Pomp’s Tire Service and Accella Corporation.

The agenda included topics such as; the campaign’s administrations trade policy, website recommendations, an update on Europe’s progress in managing the anti-dumping action in that region and well as a discussion on the need to rapidly expand the scope of support for the group’s letter writing campaign.

“The meeting was a success and a unanimous decision was made to first and foremost zero in on the main goal of ensuring a full complement of commissioners well in advance of a possible ruling by the United States Court of International Trade on the appeal that the United Steel Workers Union filed. With the group’s collective resources, contacts and willingness to spread the word, we should see tens of thousands of letters going out to our U.S. Senators very soon. We cannot stop there and are calling on all of our industry brothers and sisters to take a stand and show their support by sending letters now,” said, Retread Instead Spokesperson Ron Elliott.

Retread Instead is a coalition of retread industry supporters created to enhance the awareness of the environmental and economic benefits of retreading throughout North America.
