ISRI Forms Tire and Rubber Division and Scrap Tire Processors Chapter

Washington, DC - The Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries, Inc. (ISRI) has created a new division to accomodate members of the National Association of Scrap Tire Processors (NASTP). ISRI's board of directors unanimously passed a resolution at its fall membership conference to created the Tire and Rubber Division and Scrap Tire Processors Chapter, and the NASTP Executive Committee unanimously agreed to join ISRI.

NASTP, which has represented tire processors since 1999, will dissolve, and former members of that assocation will become ISRI members. "We are excited about this new partnership," said NASTP President Bill Vincent. "It gives companies engaged in the tire processing business access to ISRI's many resources, provides a business and networking forum, and gives us a stong voice in Washington, DC."

ISRI has represented the rubber industry since 1987. By creating a division specifically for this industry sector, ISRI hopes to attract even more tire processors into the association. "We want to grow this division of ISRI," said ISRI President Robin Wiener. "The leaders of ISRI worked closely with the leaders of NASTP to map out this new structure, and both groups realized early on that tire processors were a natural fit."
