Posted on January 2, 2018

Icahn Automotive Group LLC ended 2017 with the acquisitions of eight more independent auto service businesses, including tire dealers.

The businesses include the single locations of:

S&S Service in Hamburg, N.Y.;

Jack’s Service Center in Miami, Fla.;

Blanchette’s Auto Center in Dracut, Mass.;

Quality Automotive in Napa, Calif.;

Honest Auto Service in Seattle, Wash.;

RL&F Auto Inc. in Morrisville, N.C.; and

Plainfield Tire Center in Plainfield, Ind.

The company also acquired two WS Haynes Tire & Service locations in Memphis, Tenn.

This follows the company's purchase of the 10-store Elliott Tire and Auto Service Inc., based in Washington. Icahn Automotive says it now operates nearly 2,000 owned and franchised service locations in 49 states, plus Puerto Rico, the District of Columbia and Canada.

“We continue to aggressively expand our national automotive service network, strengthen our full-service capabilities and invest in our most important asset, our people," says said Daniel Ninivaggi, CEO of Icahn Automotive Group. "We are excited to welcome new team members to the Icahn Automotive family and provide them, like our 25,000+ existing team members, the opportunity to be part of a dynamic and successful company."
