Our president, Greg Ritchie, was recently interviewed by Voyage Houston magazine! In the interview he discusses Roadrunner’s history and future industry trends.
Below is an excerpt from the interview:
Greg, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
Our company was founded in 1968. I actually worked in radio and TV for 25 years before becoming “a tire guy”.
And I have learned a lot! Only the round tires seem to work – learned that the hard way.
We are the only manufacturer of industrial tires in Houston, and only one of two left in the US! In the five years, I have owned the business we have completely revamped what we do. We offer local homemade tires which we also install for local forklift dealers and customers. We support our local community; we sponsored the Houston Ballet last year and the Houston Dash this year. We make a special type of tire that no one else in the world makes that is zinc free, which protects groundwater from contamination. And, well, we’re just overall a sweet bunch of people.
