Sullivan Tire Co. Inc. has acquired Tom Lyons Tire & Auto Service in Waltham, Mass. The outlet became the 69th Sullivan Tire and Auto Service full-service tire and automotive facility on Sept. 11, 2017.

The Waltham location, which opened for business in 1953, consists of a full-service tire and automotive center that is 7,600 square feet with ten service stalls, as well as a 15,000 square-foot wholesale warehouse and distribution facility.  

Sullivan Tire says the location will undergo extensive renovations in the upcoming months but will remain open for business during that time.

"Tom Lyons Tire and the Garzone family have done a wonderful job serving Waltham and the surrounding communities for many, many years and we are thrilled to have this opportunity to continue that great tradition in the Sullivan Tire way,” says Paul Sullivan, vice president of marketing at Sullivan Tire.

Many of the existing Tom Lyons Tire staff will be staying on as Sullivan Tire employees. Sullivan Tire will honor all Tom Lyons warranty work.

“We’ve known the Sullivan Tire family for a long time and respect the way they do business so this was the perfect fit for us,” says former location owner Mike Garzone.  “I’m thankful for the many loyal customers over the years and hardworking employees. We know our customers and staff will be in good hands with the Sullivan Tire team, and I look forward to remaining active in the business.”
