Jim Allen has joined Titan International as vice president of sales. Allen will be headquartered in Des Moines, Iowa, at the Titan Tire Corp. offices. Allen will head up Titan’s total sales group for tires and wheels.
“Jim has a background in the automotive industry. We believe his experience and quick learning skills will fit into our culture at Titan,” said Maurice Taylor, CEO and chairman of Titan International.
Titan International, Inc., a holding company, owns subsidiaries that supply wheels, tires and assemblies for off-highway equipment used in agricultural, earthmoving/construction and consumer (including ATV) applications.
Titan Tire Corp. also announced it will implement a price increase for the aftermarket on all Titan-branded tires and Titan-manufactured, Goodyear-branded farm tires effective on all shipments on or after Aug. 1. The increase of up to 8 percent will offset rising raw material, energy and transportation costs. Certain tire prices may rise in excess of 8 percent due to realignment and positioning of the product.
