PACIFIC GROVE, Calif. — After nearly 11 years in its tiny office, the Tire Retread Information Bureau (TRIB) has shed its constrictive walls and moved into larger quarters.
“We truly were bursting at the seams,” says Harvey Brodsky, TRIB managing director, referring to TRIB’s old, cramped office. “Every possible space was occupied. We were so overcrowded that when we had visitors, they’d have to stand outside. We were at the point that you had to be a contortionist just to be able to get the filing cabinets.”
For more than 30 years, TRIB has served as a voice for the entire retread industry, working to promote the industry and to enhance the image of retreaded tires and tire repairing. TRIB is a non-profit, member-supported industry association dedicated to the recycling of tires through retreading and repairing, and to promoting proper tire maintenance for all tires.
“The new, considerably more spacious office will allow TRIB to be more efficient in responding to the overwhelming number of requests for information, guidance and assistance that it receives daily, even on weekends,” says Brodsky.
Because what goes into the manufacture of quality retreaded tires is far more complex and sophisticated than most people imagine, TRIB would be happy to arrange a tour of a retread plant for anyone who is interested, Brodsky offers.
“We also welcome visitors to TRIB’s new, roomy offices,” adds Brodsky. “There is now enough space for people to actually come inside and sit down.”
