Firestone Ag to combine distribution

April 23, 2004

Firestone Agricultural Tire Co. (FATC) plans to consolidate six warehouses into its new global distribution center in Des Moines, Iowa.

The 858,000-square-foot warehouse will serve the United States and Canadian replacement markets and export tires to more than 60 other countries, including nations in Europe, Latin America and Australia.

FATC also recently donated $15,000 to the Greater Des Moines Partnership, a group that promotes economic and community development in and around the city.

The gift is part of $75,000 that FATC has pledged to the organization over the course of five years.
