Hercules adds first warehouse in Quebec

Dec. 11, 2011

Hercules Tire Co. of Canada Inc. recently acquired the assets of the wholesale distribution business of Pneu Mondial Canada Inc. The acquisition is Hercules’ first in Quebec.

Pneu Mondial operates out of Saint Laurent, Quebec, located just outside Montreal. The company was started in early 2007 by Jacques Gravel and Daniel Lamoureux to serve the independent tire dealers of Quebec.

The Quebec warehouse gives Hercules six locations in Canada. The other five are located in Ontario, New Brunswick and British Columbia.

“The addition of Pneu Mondial in Quebec gives us local presence in one of Canada’s largest markets," says Rob Keller, president of Hercules Tire of Canada.

“Our business was built on addressing the specific needs of the independent tire dealer, so we are thrilled to be joining Hercules Tire, one of Canada’s leading wholesalers, and getting access to the Hercules product line and the great value that it offers tire dealers,” says Gravel, Pneu Mondial Canada’s president.

Hercules Tire Co. of Canada Inc. is a division of the Hercules Tire & Rubber Co. For more information, visit hercules.com.
