AND GENE PIAZZA, CUSTOMER SERVICE MANAGER, IN THE NEW
HYATT TRADE-SHOW BOOTH AT THE INTERNATIONAL SHOW IN LAS VEGAS.
GBC'S BRAND-NEW HYATT TRADE-SHOW BOOTH recently starred in the 27th Annual Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville and the International Trucking Show in Las Vegas. Our participation in these two major shows helped increase our exposure in the truck and trailer markets.
General Bearing, under the Hyatt trademark, has been a major supplier to the OEM truck and trailer markets for several years. In 1996, our nationwide Heavy Duty Distribution (HDD) Program brought top-quality GBC tapered roller bearings to the truck/trailer aftermarket.
The two recent truck shows set the stage for introducing our ball bearings through this same successful program.
From the beginning, this HDD effort has resulted in a steady growth in sales. Now, with the addition of ball bearings to this product line, we continue to improve our market penetration.
