Action Tire Co., based in Forest Park, Ga., recently opened a commercial tire center in Macon, Ga. That gives the 26-year-old dealership 10 commercial tire stores, not including a stand-alone Oliver retreading plant.
It is the second store opened by Action Tire in the last two years. In 2010, the company added a commercial dealership in Athens, Ga. (The company also has one retail location.)
Founder and President Rick Stewart says his expansion plans are more aggressive than they had been in the last few years.
"We'd like to open up three to five stores within the next three years. This economy has slowed us down like anyone else."
Action Tire offers Toyo, Double Coin, Roadmaster and Goodyear truck tires. For more information, visit www.actiontireco.com.
