Goodyear launches truck service network
The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. has formed a new on-highway truck service network, Uni-Maxx Truck Care. Wingfoot Commercial Tire Systems LLC, a Goodyear subsidiary, and Boss Truck Shops Inc., a subsidiary of Bosselman Inc., are the network’s first two members, participating through their on-highway Wingfoot Truck Care Centers and Boss Shops locations.
“Goodyear is dedicated to establishing a seamless, nationwide network of on-highway truck service shops that provides consistent products and services to all of our customers,” says Clint Schrock, director of on-highway operations for Goodyear. “The network will earn our customers’ trust through quality work; safe, clean facilities; and professional, friendly staff.”
The network will not be limited to Wingfoot or Boss, and Schrock said that the company will recruit its independent dealers to join.
“I’m sure that if it was something made available to us we would see it as an opportunity and I would think that would be good for our business,” says Charles Wilson, CEO of T&W Tire, a Goodyear commercial tire dealer in Oklahoma City, Okla. “We go pretty much 100% with all of their programs. We’re basically the biggest dealer they have in Oklahoma. They support us very well and we try to support them in all of their programs.”
Currently, the Uni-Maxx Truck Care network operates 71 on-highway commercial truck maintenance facilities positioned to provide service to the trucking industry. Many of the network’s shops are located at Pilot Travel Centers and Flying J Travel Plazas. Members of the Uni-Maxx Truck Care network will provide consistent products and services, a nationwide warranty, and 24/7 roadside assistance.
