Service Tire Truck Centers Inc. (STTC) has acquired Giant Tire Service in Hawthorne, N.J. The deal gives STTC the ability to cover the entire state of New Jersey from eight locations.
Walt Dealtrey, president and CEO of STTC, says Giant Tire Service "has been widely recognized for its exceptional truck and earthmover services" for decades. He said the acquisition was "an ideal match for both organizations."
Dealtrey said both organizations have an "extensive lineage" and are service-oriented, which has been "cultivated over multiple generations." He said Giant Tire Service is "a well-managed family enterprise with a deeply ingrained commitment to service excellence."
Giant Tire Service co-owners Dave and Denise Landau will remain in their management roles.
For STTC, this acquisition comes after the company opened a new commercial facility in April in Wall, N.J. to capture business from the closed Edwards Tire Co., "which had also built a strong business with its specialization in earthmover services."
STTC, which is based in Bethlehem, Pa., operates 54 locations throughout the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast.
