On The Beat Industry News In Brief

Indianapolis-based MZD Advertising was recently selected by Prime Lube Inc., an East Coast distributor of Chevron, BP and Exxon lubricant products, to introduce its newest diesel exhaust fluid, Blue Sky.

MZD is beginning work with Prime Lube immediately, starting with the production of materials for the upcoming Atlantic Regional Energy Expo trade show, including packaging design for the new product, a specification sheet and website development.

MZD officials said the account is in its formative stages but “has the potential to become one of [MZD’s] top 10 accounts.”

On Jan. 1, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency began requiring a 90-percent reduction in nitrogen oxide emissions from on-road diesel vehicles.

Vehicles produced after Jan. 1 now have a special tank for diesel exhaust fluid, which becomes mist-like and is injected into the nitrogen oxide to break it down into nitrogen and water, both of which are safe and non-pollutant.

The Engine Manufacturers Association estimates the demand for diesel exhaust fluid will increase 50 million gallons this year to 750 million gallons by 2015.

MZD CEO Allan Zukerman said Blue Sky has enormous market potential and MZD is ready to help Prime Lube capture as much of the market as possible.

  1. Kent's done a good job of putting together some good guests, intelligence and irreverence without the inane chatter of the other two shows. JMV is unlistenable, mostly because he doesn't do his homework and depends on non-sports stuff to keep HIM interested. Query and Shultz is a bit better, but lack of prep in their show certainly is evident. Sterling obviously workes harder than the other shows. We shall see if there is any way for a third signal with very little successful recent history to make it. I always say you have to give a show two years to grow into what it will become...

  2. Lafayette Square, Washington Square should be turned into office parks with office buildings, conversion, no access to the public at all. They should not be shopping malls and should be under tight security and used for professional offices instead of havens for crime. Their only useage is to do this or tear them down and replace them with high rise office parks with secured parking lots so that the crime in the areas is not allowed in. These are prime properties, but must be reused for other uses, professional office conversions with no loitering and no shopping makes sense, otherwise they have become hangouts long ago for gangs, groups of people who have no intent of spending money, and are only there for trouble and possibly crime, shoplifting, etc. I worked summers at SuperX Drugs in Lafayette Square in the 1970s and even then the shrinkage from shoplifting was 10-15 percent. No sense having shopping malls in these areas, they earn no revenue, attract crime, and are a blight on the city. All malls that are not of use should be repurposed or torn down by the city, condemned. One possibility would be to repourpose them as inside college campuses or as community centers, but then again, if the community is high crime, why bother.

  3. Straight No Chaser

  4. Seems the biggest use of TIF is for pet projects that improve Quality Of Life, allegedly, but they ignore other QOL issues that are of a more important and urgent nature. Keep it transparent and try not to get in ready, fire, Aim! mode. You do realize that business the Mayor said might be interested is probably going to want TIF too?

  5. Gary, I'm in complete agreement. The private entity should be required to pay IPL, and, if City parking meters are involved, the parking meter company. I was just pointing out how the poorly-structured parking meter deal affected the car share deal.
