The increase of up to 8 percent will offset rising raw material, energy and transportation costs, according to the company. Some prices may rise in excess of 8 percent because of realignment and positioning of the product lines.

In addition, Jim Allen has joined the firm as vice president of sales, headquartered in Des Moines, Iowa at the Titan Tire Corp. offices. He will head up the company’s total sales organization 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,” says Maurice Taylor, CEO and chairman of Titan International.

Allen will be visiting all of the company’s facilities in the next 60 days.
