Continental’s BestDrive Expands in Ohio

Posted on October 27, 2016

BestDrive LLC, a subsidiary of Continental Tire the Americas LLC, has opened a retread shop and commercial tire service center in Grove City, a Columbus, Ohio, suburb.

The company is hosting an open house on Oct. 27, 2016, at its newest location. The Grove City shop and service center continues the expansion of the Continental tire and ContiLifeCycle retread service network throughout the United States and North America.

BestDrive says it is now able to offer premium products and services to the existing customer base in Grove City while simultaneously earning new business in the commercial truck tire, off the road tire and industrial tire business.

“We are extremely excited to be a part of the Grove City community, and see this as a real opportunity to fill a critical need in fleet and retread services in the great state of Ohio,” says Glen Carson, BestDrive director of retail for the Americas. “It’s helpful to remember that our entrance into this market will not just help our customers, it will likely also lead to better service and availability for fleets and the overall market, as well. Everybody wins.”

The open house will be at the new BestDrive location at 3315 Urbancrest Industrial Drive in Grove City from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

During the open house attendees will learn about featured products and tools designed to deliver the lowest overall operating costs, and meet John Vastine, managing director of BestDrive. There will also be open house specials such as discounts on Continental tires and retreads, as well as lunch, prizes and drawings.
