The University at Buffalo School of Management has received a $50,000 gift from an alumnus which will enhance educational opportunities for UB accounting students.
The donation from Gerard T. Mazurkiewicz and his wife, Barbara, of West Seneca includes a $25,000 matching gift from his firm, KPMG Peat Marwick LLP. Mazurkiewicz said the gift recognizes the school's Department of Accounting and Law for the positive impact it has had on the accounting profession in Western New York and throughout the nation.
Mazurkiewicz is a 1969 graduate of the management school's accounting program and is a partner in charge of the Buffalo firm's Upstate New York tax practice.
Dunlop to supply tires for three new vehicles
Dunlop Tire Corp. will put its tires on the ML-320, Mercedes-Benz's luxury sport-utility and Motor Trend's "Truck of the Year" for 1998.
Amherst-based Dunlop will supply its Grandtrek TG35 radial as original equipment on 66 percent of the new ML-320s produced, the company announced. The model has an all-season tread pattern with multiple gripping edges for control in all weather.
Dunlop's factory in the Town of Tonawanda will supply the spare for the new Mercedes, but the rest of the Mercedes work will be performed at the company's plant in Huntsville, Ala.
Dunlop also announced that it will supply its SP 40A/S all-season radial as original equipment for the 1998 Honda Accord and the Toyota Sienna minivan. That tire also is made in Alabama.
Dunlop had supplied tires for Toyota's Previa minivan, the Sienna's predecessor, said Fred Hassen, original equipment account manager.
Dunlop is owned by Sumitomo Rubber Industries of Japan.
