Awards keep piling up for Atlantic Tire & Service

Aug. 13, 2011

The "best place for automotive repair" in western Wake County in North Carolina is Atlantic Tire & Service. So say readers of "The Cary News."

This is the third time Atlantic Tire has finished first in the Cary, N.C., newspaper's annual “Best of” poll, which is based entirely on the submissions of readers. It covers the entire Western Wake County area, which includes Cary, Apex, Morrisville, Holly Springs and Fuquay-Varina.

“We are honored to have yet again been chosen by the community as the best place for automotive repair,” says owner Anthony Blackman. “Atlantic Tire is dedicated to serving our customers and providing the highest-quality automotive care and customer service in the Triangle.

"We look forward to continuing to build relationships with each of our customers and serving the community we are so proud to be a part of.”

Atlantic Tire began serving Triangle customers in 1998 at its Cary location. It has since added stores in Durham and Raleigh.

Blackman and Atlantic Tire are no strangers to recognition and success. The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence awarded Atlantic Tire its Blue Seal of Excellence Award in 2001 for its "commitment to providing customers with quality automotive repair."

In that same year, the Cary Chamber of Commerce awarded Atlantic Tire its Community Service Award for its commitment to give back to the community. The Cary Chamber also awarded Blackman and Atlantic Tire the Employer of the Year award in 2010 for the company's "exemplary work environment and benefits for employees."

For the last three years, Atlantic Tire has been named "Best Mechanic" in western Wake County by "Cary Magazine."
