K&M Tire goes green just in time for Christmas
K&M Tire, based in Delphos, Ohio, soon will become a member-distributor of American Car Care Centers Inc. (ACCC). Effective Dec 1, K&M will be licensed to offer ACCC's new EcoExpress Tire Centers retail program to its customers in Michigan, Indiana, and certain parts of Ohio.
"Adding value to our dealers' businesses and making a difference in our community are among K&M's core objectives as a company," says Ken Langhals, president of K&M Tire. "We feel that this partnership and this exciting new retail program will allow us to reach new heights where both of these objectives are concerned."
