TGI teams with Alliance in Latin America
Tire Group International LLC (TGI) and Alliance Tire Group have entered into a distribution agreement that will allow TGI to exclusively distribute Galaxy branded tires in Latin America and the Caribbean, with exception of Colombia and Ecuador.
The agreement comes on the heels of an agreement between TGI and Tireco Inc. that also involves distribution in Latin America and the Caribbean.
TGI will offer the whole range of Galaxy’s industrial, agricultural and off-the-road tires, either direct from the factory or as fill-in shipments from its distribution center in Miami, Fla.
(Alliance Tire specializes in the development, manufacturing and marketing of tires for replacement and original equipment agricultural, forestry, construction, industrial and earthmoving applications under the Alliance, Galaxy and Primex brands.)
TGI "has a solid reputation for building brands in Latin America through a dedicated dealer network and excellent customer service," says Manny Cicero, president of Alliance Tire Group.
"The addition of the Galaxy brand will allow us to strengthen our position in the industrial, agricultural and OTR segments,” says Orlando Delgado, TGI’s senior vice president of sales and marketing. “This new partnership presents a great opportunity for TGI to develop Galaxy’s distribution in the replacement market."
