Canada’s Largest Independent Tire Dealer Selects the KMI EHS Software Suite
Vernon, BC and Oakville, ON, October 15, 2012: KMI announced today Kal Tire, one of the largest retail tire dealers in Canada, selected the KMI Software Suite as the platform to manage key aspects of its health and safety program throughout its global operations.
