Tire Pros acquires Autotire Car Care Centers
Am-Pac Tire Distributors Inc., franchisor of Tire Pros, has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Latham Tire Company, d.b.a. Autotire Car Care Centers, for an undisclosed amount. The closing is scheduled to occur shortly.
"By uniting with Tire Pros and leveraging its many years of leadership in the tire and auto service industry, Autotire becomes an instant heavyweight in the area," says John Ronsick, president of Autotire.
"Autotire now has all the tools for future market growth and successes in the St. Louis area," says Am-Pac CEO and President Dennis Mangola. "I am thoroughly impressed with the top notch leadership team cultivated at Autotire."
Autotire was founded in 1981 by partners Gene Latham, Ray Latham and Ronsick. It now consists of 23 metropolitan locations, a wholesale operation and parts division.
Both Tire Pros franchises and Autotire are members of American Car Care Centers (ACCC).
