(WESTLAKE, Ohio, November 2, 2016 –Business Wire), TravelCenters of America LLC operator of the TA® and Petro Stopping Centers® travel center brands, announced the formation of the TA Truck Service Commercial Tire Network™.
TA has been a leader in the truck stop tire business for over 40 years. The TA Truck Service Commercial Tire Network allows TA to meet increased customer demand for flexible, efficient sourcing of commercial tires.
“We have significantly expanded the ways in which we may sell tires and the tires that we may sell to our customers,” said Tom O’Brien, president and CEO of TravelCenters.
“In addition to our traditional retail and ‘national account’ offering, we have already added tire brands, including Cooper Tire Roadmaster®, Goodyear Marathon® and Kelly®, and expect to add others soon, including BF Goodrich®, Pirelli® and Formula® by Pirelli. We have also expanded the array of tire brands available through both our RoadSquad™ emergency roadside service and our growing OnSITE™ mobile maintenance service. Many of the tires in our line up will now also be available for pick-up by customers, delivery at customer locations and through direct sales. We believe that the TA Truck Service Commercial Tire Network™ is the largest independent commercial tire dealer in the United States, and that we have assembled a leadership and dedicated sales team to bring the combination of wide product choice, flexible delivery/install capability, and competitive pricing to our customers that may be unparalleled in the commercial tire business.”
