Hornsby Tire adds 3rd distribution center
Hornsby Tire Distributors Inc., an independent regional wholesale tire distributor based in Ariton, Ala., is expanding its geographical footprint into the Huntsville, Ala., market.
The expansion gives the company its third distribution center in Alabama, and will allow the company to leverage additional efficiencies across not only the entire state but also into its other markets in the Panhandle of Florida, southern Georgia, and eastern Mississippi. It will begin operations on June 13, 2011.
“The new distribution center completes one of several strategic objectives toward further expansion within our region,” says President Steve Mattis.
“This expansion will allow tire dealers in the Huntsville market access to our successful programs and purchasing power. This industry has experienced substantial change in many aspects over the last several years -- there is an acute need for additional options within the Huntsville market, and we look forward to providing an additional solution.”
The company will be hiring several employees for the new distribution center.
Hornsby Tire Distributors was founded in 1967. It carries a wide variety of consumer and commercial tires and related product offerings.
