Atlanta Commercial Tire Adds VIS Wheel Polishing Service

Jan. 3, 2018

Atlanta Commercial Tire has added a pair of Vehicle Inspection Systems Inc. (VIS) automated wheel polishing machines to its fleet of equipment.

“We invested in the VIS-Polish in an effort to provide a quality, consistent product to our customers in a timely manner,” says Larry Faulkner, vice president of sales and marketing for Atlanta Commercial Tire Inc. “The VIS-Polish process helps convey a high quality expectation when customers are evaluating their options for wheel polishing.

"The impressive, professional appearance of the polishing operation coupled with the tremendous finished product puts us in the best position possible to grow our current business and target new business.”

Atlanta Commercial Tire started in downtown Atlanta more than 45 years ago and operates nine locations and three Bandag retread manufacturing plants.. The business operates more than 50 service trucks throughout the state of Georgia, plus four off-the-road boom trucks for OTR tires.

The tire dealer also sells forklift tires, foam-filled tires and rubber tracks. The company also has a mobile forklift tire press to press on forklift tires at customers’ facilities.

“Our VIS-Polish units will be a great addition to the Atlanta Commercial Tire Business,” says Mark Keegans, VIS vice president. “We are very excited to start working with this tire dealer. More tire dealers are starting to invest in their business with the VIS-Polish, and we are proud to be working with them.”
