The person who is there first
with the right product will get the
sale and keep his plants running
ahead of the others in his industry.
Our salesmen are not the only
ones involved in meeting the custo
mers’ requirements. Every job in
our organization is part of the
final sales effort, part of meeting
the customers’ needs.
This means that our organiza
tion and our plants must be
flexible as well as efficient. To
achieve this flexibility and effi
ciency, the co-operation of every
man and woman at Firestone is
needed. If everyone will co-operate
in achieving these aims, there can
be no doubt that Firestone will
have MORE SALES, MORE JOBS
AND MORE WORKERS,
