Belle Tire development center trains 100-plus techs

July 8, 2008

Year to date, Belle Tire Distributors Inc. has trained more than 100 techs at its Technician Development Center, which opened in early 2008.

In addition to sending more techs through its training center, the Allen Park, Mich.-based dealership -- the seventh largest independent tire store chain in the United States with more than 70 locations -- plans to grow its store count as the year progresses.

"We have four other retail stores in various stages of the development process throughout Michigan," says Belle Tire Vice President Jeff Kruse.
