TCI adds warehouses in key markets

Oct. 22, 2004

Tire Centers LLC (TCI) is expanding its distribution capabilities in the Miami, Fla., Baton Rouge/New Orleans, La., and St. Louis, Mo., markets.

TCI´s new warehouses in Miami and the Baton Rouge/New Orleans areas "are taking orders this week," says Dave Snyder, TCI´s vice president of small tire marketing and sales.

TCI hopes to open its St. Louis warehouse by the end of the year.

All three regions are key markets for TCI "that we feel offer good opportunities."

TCI, which is owned by Michelin North America Inc., will distribute Michelin, BFGoodrich and Uniroyal brand tires through the facilities, plus its Trivant line and some Hankook products.
