East Bay Tire Co. has expanded its commercial tire business with a fourth service center in Hawaii. It marks the company's 13th commercial location.
The store at 140 Hobron Avenue in Kahului is located on the island of Maui, and it provides tire sales, retreading and roadside assistance. East Bay Tire has service centers on both Oahu and the Big Island, as well as a retread plant in Honolulu. The company's headquarters are in Fairfield, Calif.
“Expansion in Hawaii has proven challenging at times, but as a community cornerstone we have come to understand the nuance of doing business in Hawaii," says Jay Ress, East Bay Tire general manager and head of Hawaii operations. "It is about being an active player driving economic growth for the entire state. We are excited for the opportunities this new location represents."
CEO George Pehanick says the company is “well-known throughout Hawaii due to our long-standing business relationships, our involvement in the community and by providing the best service in the state."
