President Tire continues Canadian expansion
Laval, Quebec-based distributor President Tire Canada will add 10 to 12 new franchises by mid-summer.
Target areas include New Foundland, Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan, says President Tire General Manager Denis Monette.
The 129-outlet distributor markets Dayton, Eldorado, Michelin, BFGoodrich, Uniroyal, General, Continental, Kumho and Matador brand tires, plus its own President private label offering, which is made by Bridgestone/Firestone Inc. and Michelin Americas Small Tires.
It is the ninth largest tire distribution network in North America with more than $40 million in annual sales, according to Modern Tire Dealer statistics.
