Ohio’s Next Generation Rolling Along

Leave a comment

Give a 2016 Camaro to a bunch of college kids and what do you get? A near silent car that gets about 60 mpg. No, this isn’t a lame joke. It’s a project going on now near Columbus, where mechanical engineering students at the Ohio State University Center for Automotive Research are preparing for an international competition sponsored by General Motors and the U.S. Department of Energy, among others. Students from OSU have won the competition, twice.

The center and the program keeps rolling thanks in part to corporate sponsors from around the state, including Findlay’s Cooper Tire & Rubber. 

Innovation Keeps Everyone Rolling

While a stealthy Camaro that sips rather than gulps gasoline has a sort of sexy news angle, we think trailers are pretty hot, too. In some cases, trailers are used for fun – we like toy haulers and pop-up tent trailers as much as the next guy! – but for the most part, trailers do the heavy lifting and long-hauling that keeps Cleveland, Ohio, and the rest of this country in business.

If you depend on your trailer, you know what we mean. When your trailer isn’t working, you’re probably not working. And that’s not good. (Unless it’s your day off!)  Do yourself a favor and stick our number in your phone: 440.232.4311 and bookmark our website: www.JTIinc.com so you can get in touch whenever you need a trailer or hitch expert.

We love working with people who depend on their trailers – whether they’re landscapers who’ve been in business almost as long as we have or upstarts using trailers to launch new and innovative businesses.

What’s Next, Ohio?

We’ve been in the trailer business since 1935 – that’s a long time. And you know what? A LOT has changed. Stop in to find out what’s new and what’s next in trailers, hitches, and tools that can make your trailer work harder and your work easier. We feature new products on our website (like Speedbinders, made right here in NE Ohio!), and are constantly checking out other innovations to find out if they live up to the hype and can really help our customers.
