Bauer Built acquires Nebraska dealership

June 5, 2015

Bauer Built Inc., the ninth largest commercial tire dealer in the U.S., has aquired Central Tire & Tread Inc. of Lexington, Neb. Bauer Built is based in Durand, Wis.

In addition to selling Michelin retreaded truck tires produced by Bauer Built, the facility services retail, commercial and agricultural customers with their tire and service needs. That includes offering car and truck alignments.

According to Tad Bauer, president of Bauer Built, this acquisition is the result of continuing efforts by Bauer Built to expand its existing operations as part of its overall growth strategy.

Bauer also announced that the company will be investing in a premier 20,000-square-foot truck and retail facility in Lexington. Until it is completed this fall, Bauer Built will operate out of the existing Central Tire & Tread facility.

Bauer Built has been in business 71 years servicing the Midwest with tires and mechanical service. With the addition of Central Tire & Tread, Bauer Built has 35 tire centers, seven Michelin Retread Technology retread plants and four wheel refinishing operations. It also operates a bulk petroleum business out of Durand.
