Purcell Tire & Rubber Co. continues to expand. The Potosi, Mo.-based dealership recently acquired Tri-State Tire in American Fork, Utah.

Tri-State was founded by Bob and Derrie Morris in 2000 and was sold to their son, Brian, two years ago.

The company specializes in mobile and fleet tire service and "fits into the Purcell Tire commercial business model perfectly," according to Purcell officials.

Tri-State "will continue to serve the Salt Lake City area with enhanced services and additional staff from this acquisition."

Purcell is one of the largest independent tire dealerships in the United States with more than 70 locations, according to the MTD 100.

It also is the fourth largest retreader in the U.S., according to MTD's recently published Top 50 Retreaders list, which appeared in the April 2022 issue of MTD.

This past February, Purcell acquired Commerce City, Colo.-based OTR, commercial truck and industrial tire dealership Callender Tire Inc.

And it acquired Lowe Industrial Tire Service LLC, a single-location dealership in Grain Valley, Mo., this past April.
