"Titan achieved another first quarter of remarkable sales and profits. Our employees have worked hard, and it is paying off," stated Titan Chairman and CEO Morry Taylor. "Titan is growing and expanding. During the early stages, the company’s acquisition of Goodyear’s North American farm tire assets is proving to be an extremely positive addition to the Titan organization. As always, we stand willing and ready to evaluate acquisition opportunities in off-highway wheels and tires that would further strengthen Titan’s business and performance."
