Mohawk Rubber Sales acquires Italmatic-Pro
Mohawk Rubber Sales has purchased Italmatic-Pro, an international retread distribution center in Alpharetta, Ga. The warehouse has more than 12,000 square feet of inventory and office space.
"The acquisition of this new distribution center is an important milestone for Mohawk Rubber," says President Patrick McGeoghegan.
"It will not only enable us to better serve our valued customers throughout the southeast more efficiently, but it will allow us to bring a higher level of service to both our own customers in this region as well as Italmatic-Pro’s customers. We’re going to take the relationships they’ve built and bring them to a new level of 'no-hassle' service."
According to Italmatic-Pro's former owner, Alan Rubenstein, his company specialized in servicing the tire retreading industry, more so than the tire industry in general. Mohawk, on the other hand, sells a full-range of products to all tire dealers and repair shops.
"Our clients are very excited about becoming a member of the Mohawk family," says Rubenstein. "Now they can have all their tire equipment and supply needs met through one company that offers better service and a bigger range of products."
Rubenstein approached Mohawk's owners about buying his business when he decided it was time to retire. Alan’s son, Darryl Rubenstein, remains the office manager in Alpharetta. Most of the company’s employees also have remained on staff.
