John Ziegler Jr. Reflects On Challenges That Shaped Ziegler Tire


Recommended Posts

John Ziegler Jr. has rubber running through his veins. The third generation of a 102-year-old tire business, Ziegler grew up busting tires at his family’s Ziegler Tire retail stores in Canton, Ohio.

After graduating from college, he worked for short time at a Firestone store, yet the family business, which claims to be one of the first and oldest Firestone dealers, called him back. 

A jack of all trades, Ziegler has worked on the retail, commercial and wholesale side of Ziegler Tire’s growing business, and now serves as the company’s vice president. Over the years, Ziegler Tire has grown to include three wholesale centers, two retread plants, 16 commercial centers and seven retail locations.

From growing up in the business, Ziegler has plenty of stories about Ziegler Tire’s growing pains and triumphs and has met tire industry greats along the way. Learn about them and hear his stories in the latest episode of “Johnny g & Friends,” sponsored by Firestone.

      To Importers in the Global Tire Industry:

      Please read this  as it might inspire you. Many international friends have been perplexed about how to import tires manufactured in China and sell them in their home countries. China's tire industry has experienced rapid growth over the past decade, marking a period of significant dividends. Many early investments in large factories have yielded substantial returns. However, with an increasing number of factories and brands, the competition has intensified. For those who wish to enter this industry but are unsure about how to proceed, please follow my website. I will periodically update it with information about China's tire industry for your reference.

      The Tire Industry Association has joined other association leaders to support the critical global Right to Repair movement by signing the new Right to Repair position statement.
      The statement enumerates the core beliefs of the movement and the objectives and intended outcomes of right to repair legislation. The document also sets forth 10 best-practice principles to developing a framework for Right to Repair legislation that any supporting country can use and adapt them to their needs.
      Globally, the automotive aftermarket keeps 1.5 billion vehicles on the road while contributing $1.8 trillion to the global economy. After vehicles exit their warranty period, independent repair shops perform 70% of repairs. This vibrant industry and the consumer choice that it creates is being threatened by automotive manufacturers that block access to wirelessly transmitted vehicle repair and maintenance data, according to TIA.
      Without the convenience and choice of independent parts and repair, especially in suburban and rural communities, consumers will have limited access to affordable vehicle service and repair. These restrictions can have catastrophic effects on local economies and the well-being and safety of millions that rely on vehicle transportation daily, TIA says.
      In the United States, the automotive aftermarket is a $492 billion industry employing 4.5 million professionals, according to the Auto Care Association. 
      “Right to Repair is a top priority for TIA members and for the global automotive aftermarket,” said Richard “Dick” Gust, TIA CEO. “Without safeguards, independent automotive repairers and vehicle owners will have fewer repair options, face longer wait times and pay higher prices when they repair their vehicles. It is crucial for independent auto repair locations to have access to the equipment and data needed to repair today’s highly technological vehicles and that consumers have a choice in where they get their vehicles repaired.”
      Both

When I started my career as a technician, performance-related diagnostics were not that challenging when compared to today’s technology. Most symptoms could be isolated to a fuel or ignition-related problem with a simple road test. Diagnostic equipment was limited to some basic tools such as a timing light, rpm/dwell meter, compression gauge, vacuum gauge, volt/ohm meter, […]

All ongoing remanufacturing activities will roll under the MEMA Aftermarket Suppliers membership group, where Chalifoux will lead operations.
      “Our members are leaders in the automotive and commercial vehicle supplier industry,” said Chalifoux. “I am excited to take on this dual role within MEMA as we unite aftermarket suppliers and serve all MEMA members wherever they are in their sustainability journey.”
      Previously at MEMA, Chalifoux was vice president of marketing and business development for MEMA’s original-equipment suppliers market segment (OESA). Before MEMA, Chalifoux was a strategy consultant for PricewaterhouseCoopers. He is an experienced marketing and sales executive, working in the automotive supplier community for Freudenberg-NOK, NTN Bearing and Valeo. He began his career with Goldman Sachs in New York.
      Chalifoux earned bachelor’s degrees in economics and mechanical engineering from Stony Brook University and an MBA from Michigan State University. He also is a graduate of the NADA Dealer Academy. In 2022, Northwood University recognized Chalifoux with its Automotive Aftermarket Management Education Award and he was named a Notable Leader in Sustainability by Crain’s Detroit Business.
