ETI Moves Headquarters to Detroit

(Akron/Tire Review) The Equipment and Tool Institute (ETI), an association of automotive tool and equipment manufacturers, technical information providers and training organizations, announced the relocation of its corporate office from Apex, N.C., to the Detroit area.

Its new address is 134 W. University Drive, Suite 206, Rochester, MI 48307, and the association’s phone number is 248-656-5080 and FAX is 603-971-2375.

ETI said the move will allow it to strengthen its ties to OEMs by working together and sharing information. Jessie Korosec, ETI’s new marketing manager, will be located at the headquarters office.

"We have enjoyed important and positive relationships out of our North Carolina office and we’ll miss being part of a community that has been our corporate home for so long," said Charlie Gorman, ETI’s executive director. "We felt it was time to bring our base of operations to the Detroit area. We look forward to continuing to meet the demands of the industry and our members in our new location.”

ETI provides technical data and encourages open dialog between the manufacturers of transportation products, government regulators and the providers of tools, equipment and service information. The association works in the following key areas: scan tools, underhood technology, collision repair, undercar and shop management and information software.
