Fountain Tire division adds 2 DCs
Tire Country, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Fountain Tire Ltd., is opening two wholesale tire centers in Vaughan and London in southern Ontario, Canada.
The new wholesale tire centers will offer 57,000 square feet of warehouse space to better serve dealers.Brands sold through the new centers include a broad assortment of Goodyear, Dunlop and Kelly tires as well as Sailun products.
Tire Country’s expansion into the Greater Toronto area and southwestern Ontario positions the wholesale distributor for significant growth beyond its base in Western Canada.
“The opening of these locations further strengthens Tire Country’s position as a highly aligned Goodyear wholesale distributor,” says Jason Herle, general manager, expansion. “Our customers will benefit from a broadly experienced customer service, marketing and sales team that specializes in Goodyear and other brands.”
Based in Edmonton, Tire Country has been a Goodyear wholesale distributor for more than 10 years. Beyond its two new distribution centers in Vaughan and London, the distributor has warehouses in Delta, British Columbia; Calgary, Alberta; St. Albert, Alberta, and Winnipeg, Manitoba.
