On September 12th ITIA will hold a regional meeting in Athlone Training Centre (host to our Tyre Technician Programme), just off the M4 (exit 9) from 5.30 – 7.30pm. This meeting is open to all members of the tyre industry and will be an opportunity for you to meet with colleagues to discuss the challenges for our industry.
The meeting will hear from the following guest speakers
- Aaron Travers of Travers insurance on the topic of insurance and opportunities for ITIA members.
- Alan Bithell, Chairman of the British Standard steering panel for the tyre repair standard BS AU 159g and director of the Retread Manufacturing Association
- Ben Hartopp, Operations Manager, Tyresure, Europe’s leading supplier of TPMS products.
ITIA will highlight the work it is undertaking in relation to legislation, regulation and training. We will also outline our communications plan for Road Safety Week which will include a campaign involving An Garda Siochána carrying out road checks for tyre safety.
The meeting will also include a tour of the Athlone Training facility and a presentation on the ITIA tyre technician training programme.
We hope you will be able to come along – refreshments will be served.
