I was raised in the commercial tire industry since I was 12 years old. He has 22 years experience backing him. Taught first by John Dewey Eatmon Who was much like a father to me, I eventually called him Daddy. He showed me everything there is to know about truck tires. Even taught me to drive. But most importantly, he taught me to be fair in all acts of life. To be caring and to take pride in my work and efforts. He always told me to take good care of my customers because without them you will surely starve.
Then in my mid 20's I was lucky enough for fate to hand me over to the second legend and mentor of my life, Buddy Vasbinder. Who taught me about the OTR side of the tire industry. i gobbled up all his teachings, and again he reached to me about customer service. Anyone who has ever met Bud knows you never turn down a customer and always give them a good deal. He also showed me the way of the "Walmart" philosophy buy cheap and sell cheap, anmd pass the savings along to the customer. Alot of folks do it a bit differently then us, they care more about their profit margins then YOU!!
These two men helped shape me and mold me in to the customer first, respectful, diligent hard working man I am today. I owe everything I am and have become to them. Hats off to you John Eatmon and Buddy Vasbinder!
