ATV has added 6 stores to its network of American Tire Depot stores in California.

ATV Inc. has acquired six stores in the greater Los Angeles metro area. The purchase expands ATV's network of American Tire Depot stores to 98 outlets, all in California.

Five the stores were formerly Napa Performance AutoCare outlets. The outlet in Pasadena was an Autobahn Tire and Automotive Center store. ATV is converting them to American Tire Depot tire and automotive repair service centers, according to Avo Kamberian, director of marketing. All stores are operational and serving customers now.

He says the company will substantially escalate the marketing investments and expand the product offering to include the most comprehensive line of tire products.

“For these reasons, the Napa acquisition will serve to stimulate the local economies by providing jobs and training for future automotive service experts," says Kamberian.

The new American Tire Depot stores are in Culver City (5570 Sepulveda Blvd.), Hollywood (5801 Sunset Blvd.), Pasadena (2155 E. Colorado Blvd.), Thousand Oaks (621 E. Thousand Oaks Blvd.), Upland (1281 E. Foothill Blvd.) and West Covina (215 Azusa Ave.).

ATV is celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2017.
