Liberty Tire Recycling Acquires Two FL Tire Companies

The addition of the two businesses enhances Liberty's operations in the state's central region.

Liberty Tire Recycling has expanded its presence in Florida with the recent acquisition of two central Florida tire companies, Empire Tire of Edgewater in Orlando and McGee Tire in Apopka. The addition of these two businesses enhances Liberty’s operations in the state’s central region.

“These are great companies who have served their clients and employees well. We are thrilled to continue their legacy of excellence,” said Thomas Womble, CEO of Liberty Tire Recycling. “This is a real opportunity for Liberty and Central Florida to leverage our scale and financial position to expand operations, create new jobs, improve collections and recycling efforts and provide sustainable solutions for end-of-life tires.”

Empire Tire of Edgewater is recognized as the largest scrap tire collector in the Orlando area, and McGee Tire is a notable player in Orlando’s route collection business, the company said. The acquisition of these companies, both with extensive experience in the Central Florida scrap tire market, aims to bolster Liberty’s tire collection and recycling capabilities. Empire Tire & Wheel retail stores will continue operating under their existing ownership.

Liberty Tire Recycling, a tire collection, processing and manufacturing company in North America, collects tires from over 36,700 retail locations and operates 54 processing facilities in the United States and western Canada. In the past decade, Liberty has collected over 1.56 billion tires and continues to seek new recycling partnerships.

Through its recycling initiatives, Liberty converts end-of-life tires into a variety of products for commercial and retail applications. The company produces over 100 recycled rubber products available at more than 10,000 retail and commercial locations across North America, including major home improvement retailers. This expansion in Florida is set to enhance Liberty’s tire recycling and reclamation efforts significantly, the company said.
