McCarthy Tire Service Co. Inc. is merging two store operations and relocating them to a larger facility in Levittown, Pa.
The company is renovating the former Gallagher Tire building in Levittown, a community 20 miles northeast of Philadelphia. When completed, the company will move its commercial tire operation from Bensalem, Pa., into the building. The goal is to open the new site on June 26.
Then, a few weeks later, McCarthy Tire Service will move its industrial tire business in Philadelphia to the Levittown site.
The new Levittown store will handle the combined services from both stores. This includes tire sales and service for commercial trucks, buses, industrial equipment, off-the-road (OTR) vehicles, and farm tractors and implements; a mounted tire program; industrial tire pressing and foam filling service; and fleet services. The roadside assistance program will cover the City of Philadelphia, southeastern Pennsylvania and western New Jersey.
McCarthy Tire Service chose the site for its close proximity to three major interstates — the store is only 2 miles away from the Pennsylvania Turnpike and I-95. The property includes a 40,000 square foot building, twice the size of the Bensalem location, a large parking lot for tractor trailers, several loading docks, and a generous office suite.
“Business in this market is strong,” says John D. McCarthy Jr., president of McCarthy Tire Service. “Merging our teams into this larger, more efficient facility will help us better serve our customers.”
The team members from the Bensalem and Philadelphia locations will be moved to the Levittown facility. Matt McLernan, manager of the Philadelphia store, will take the helm as the location manager of the combined operation. Sherry Beck from the Bensalem store be the assistant manager.
The new address is 1901 Hartel Avenue, Levittown, Pa., 19057, and the phone number will be 267-522-8046, the same as is currently used by the Bensalem store.
