Speedco opens 52nd location

April 21, 2008

Speedco Inc. reports it has opened its 52nd location. The new outlet is in Commerce City, Colo., just outside Denver.

The company has added more than 20 new locations in the last three years.

Speedco provides lube, oil and filter service to heavy-duty trucks in about 30 minutes. Speedco locations are open seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. The Commerce City location offers three pull-through lube lanes and two tire lanes.

Forty of Speedco’s 52 locations offer full-service tire lanes that will now feature Bridgestone and Firestone brand tires, as well as Bandag retreads.

Bridgestone Bandag LLC has an 87.5% interest in Speedco. Bridgestone Bandag LLC is part of Bridgestone Bandag Tire Solutions, an operating unit of Bridgestone Firestone North American Tire LLC.

On July 2, Speedco will host a grand opening celebration at the Denver location. The event will feature the Speedco Chopper, a motorcycle custom-built for the company by Orange County Chopper. The chopper is on a nation-wide tour to raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Everyone who donates to the cause while attending the event will receive a poster of the chopper.
