Off-the-Road Tire Repair and Retread

OTR tires are very large and can be very costly.  In many cases it would be better for companies operating heavy equipment to have damaged or worn-out tires repaired or retreaded instead of investing in brand new tires.  Join the Myers Industries Corporate Communications Team as we spend the day learning about the dirty job of OTR tire repair and retreading.

Building a New Corporate Website

In today’s fast paced digital world, new websites seem to pop-up overnight. But is that really the case? How long does it really take to develop and launch a new website? I guess that depends on who the new website is for, what functionality the sitewill have, how many pages it will be, and how much of a budget is available to invest.

Corporate Communications Road Trip Diary, Buckhorn Bluffton

On July 8, 2014 my colleagues and I hit the road at 7:00 am to make the three and half hour drive to our Buckhorn, Inc. facility in Bluffton, IN for a video and photo shoot. The drive out of Akron down 71 South was pretty uneventful, but somewhere along Route 30 in the middle of Ohio corn field flatness the ride got significantly more interesting, thanks to the torrential rain and wicked wind that I was trying to drive through at 70 miles per hour.
