TBC signs deal with Exide
TBC Corp. has signed an exclusive agreement with Exide Technologies, one of the world's largest producers and recyclers of lead-acid batteries.
As part of the agreement, Exide will provide its NASCAR battery line to more than 590 retail locations operated by TBC under the Tire Kingdom, Merchant's Tire & Auto Centers and National Tire & Battery names.
In addition, more than 570 tire and automotive service centers franchised by TBC under the Big O Tires name will have the opportunity to purchase under the same line under the TBC/Exide program.
Craig Muhlhauser, CEO and president of Exide, says the exclusive alliance affords Exide a tremendous opportunity.
"As TBC works to aggressively expand its retail network in the U.S., Exide will continue to build upon our already strong relationship, maintaining our focus on making our customers successful."
