TireHub, the national tire distributor cofounded by Bridgestone Americas Inc. (Bridgestone) and The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company (Goodyear), has announced expansion into six new markets within the fourth quarter of 2022. To better serve customers with increased national coverage, TireHub will open TireHub Logistics Centers (TLCs) in Shreveport, Louisiana; Beltsville, Maryland; Greenville, South Carolina; Tulsa, Oklahoma; Grand Rapids, Michigan; and Spokane, Washington.
“As a customer-centric company, we are excited to have the opportunity to introduce new customers to the products, programs and service that TireHub has to offer,” said TireHub CEO Ted Becker. “Simultaneously, we look forward to elevating the service and experience of existing customers through enhanced availability and delivery timing.”
Including the six fourth quarter openings, TireHub will have opened or expanded a total of 10 TLCs in 2022. Locations in Shreveport, Beltsville and Greenville opened on Oct. 17, Nov. 14 and Nov. 21, respectively. The Tulsa and Grand Rapids centers opened yesterday, and the Spokane facility is slated to open before the end of the year. Earlier this year, TireHub opened locations in McAllen, Texas; Tucson, Arizona; and Chicago, Illinois. The company also expanded its Metairie, Louisiana, facility.
TireHub continues to grow its national presence in the tire distribution industry. Since its founding in July 2018, the company has added 10 new markets to its footprint and increased service and capacity in over a dozen additional centers. By the end of 2022, TireHub will operate 79 TLCs in 34 states with more to come in 2023 and beyond.
“Our rapid expansion plans give more dealers and retailers access to our leading breadth and depth of Bridgestone and Goodyear products. 2022 was a year of significant growth, and we are excited to continue expanding our footprint in 2023,” Becker continued.
The company also expanded its product offerings this year with the addition of Cooper Tires to its portfolio.
“We’re committed to providing the right tire at the right time to our dealers and retailers. Our customers are the heart of what we do, and our expansion – both in presence and portfolio—is another opportunity to better meet their needs,” Becker expanded.
