tirebusiness.com — AKRON — Independent tire dealers contacted recently by Tire Business said they saw tire sales move the needle a bit in 2017 but reported that their service numbers increased more significantly.

rubbernews.com — SOUTHAMPTON, Pa.—NewAge Industries recently celebrated a significant green achievement: It's now a zero-waste organization. All waste is reused, recycled or disposed of by combustion at a local Energy from Waste facility. NewAge, a manufacturer of plastic, rubber and silicone tubing, generates waste during its production process. The company has always had a focus on eco-friendly initiatives, but the landfill-free status takes it to a new level.
