McCarthy Tire Service Co. has purchased Commercial Truck Tire Center in Syracuse, N.Y. from the Cairns family.

The addition of the Commercial Truck Tire Center location brings McCarthy Tire’s operation to 45 service centers, seven Bandag retread shops and one off-the-road (OTR) retread facility in seven states.

“We are very pleased that the Cairns and McCarthy families have reached this agreement,” says John McCarthy, Jr., president of McCarthy Tire Service.

“Commercial Truck Tire Center has an excellent reputation in the Syracuse market and their employees exhibit the high quality of customer care that has long been a McCarthy standard," he says.

"Opening up in the same facility that has made Commercial Truck Tire Center a leader in their market, along with welcoming all of their employees into the McCarthy team, provides us with a great platform to continue and expand on the excellent customer service the Cairns family has been providing for over 25 years.”

McCarthy Tire will continue to provide commercial tire sales and service at the location in East Syracuse. The site will be a part of McCarthy Tire’s 24-hour commercial road side assistance program available to fleets and independent operators in New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, and North Carolina.
