U.S. government.

The U.S. government will use both new and retreaded tires supplied by Goodyear for installation on both light and medium-sized trucks. Under new federal guidelines, the GSA will now require that retreaded tires be given preference over new tires when federal agencies equip their vehicles. The federal fleet totals 3 million vehicles. The retreaded tires, produced in Goodyear retreading operations that are approved by the government, are sold on a bid basis.

SIA, a joint venture between Fuji Heavy Industries and Isuzu Motors, presented quality awards to Goodyear plants in Union City, TN and Medicine Hat, Alberta. The plants manufacture Wrangler light truck tires and convenience spare tires and ship the tires to the automaker's facility in Lafayette, IN. Goodyear's Union City plant supplies all-terrain radial light truck tires as original equipment on the Isuzu Rodeo sport-utility vehicle. The Medicine Hat facility manufactures convenience spare tires for other SIA-built vehicles, such as the Subaru Legacy.

The Heatshields Division of TBA Industrial Products Ltd., a subsidiary of T&N plc, was awarded the Ford Q1 and Rover Sterling quality awards.
