ERJ staff report (DS)
Quincy, Illinois -- Titan Tire Corp., a subsidiary of Titan International, Inc. , will implement a price increase on tyres and assemblies for original equipment manufacturers, effective July 1, 2008.
The increase will range from 7 percent to 37 percent, depending on the tyre, to offset rising costs for natural rubber, bead wire and oil-based material such as synthetic rubber and carbon black. Overall synthetic rubber shortages have also contributed to rising raw material costs.
