FINDLAY, Ohio — Hercules Tire has announced the expansion and relocation of its Chicago TDW (Tire Dealer’s Warehouse) branch to a new facility in nearby Franklin Park. The new Chicago TDW facility, which opened this week, offers 50 percent more capacity, a state-of-the-art inventory management system, expanded loading docks and will-call service for customers.
Hercules Tire opened its Chicago TDW branch in 2004 in Melrose Park with four employees and six docks. Since then, TDW Chicago has grown to employ 20 individuals and operates 17 loading docks. In all, Hercules Tire operates 12 TDW branches across the United States and nearly 2 million square feet of distribution globally.
“Our TDW division continues to grow within our organization and the success of our Chicago facility is a fine example of a well-deserved expansion,” said Bill Trimarco, president and CEO.
“At TDW, we pride ourselves in being a strong supplier, not a competitor to the dealers in the markets we serve,” added Mike Schultz, regional general manager for TDW Chicago. “Our Hercules and associate brands have been well-received in the Chicago market and we appreciate the support of our dealers who have made this new expansion possible.”
TDW Chicago offers the full spectrum of Hercules Tires, as well as tires from top manufacturers such as: Toyo, Kumho, Yokohama, Falken, Nexen, Federal, Denman, Solideal and Mickey Thompson and more.
