He was so successful in this venture that he eventually sold this company, parlaying that success into a new company in 1975, which he named Mov-it-Tire Product, akin to his tenacious business sense. His son, William, carries on his legacy of entrepreneurship, running the company to this day. Patrick was also a pioneer in helping to organize the tire industry, by becoming one of the beginning members of ASCOT (a group purchasing organization), an organization of which he continued to develop into the latter parts of his storied career.
