Hornsby Tire Distributors Inc. has opened its sixth distribution center and expanded into the Jacksonville, Fla., market.
Operations began Aug. 1, and the company says the new center will "greatly extend its geographic reach."
CEO Steve Mattis says, “While there have clearly been a number of sizable changes within the wholesale sector thus far this year, we continue to execute the fundamentals on a daily basis. We have no retail presence and are 100% focused on the wholesale channel of the tire industry. This focus has served our company well as other companies often attempt to participate in multiple channels.
“Our singular driving force is concentrating on our dealers’ needs as a value-added distributor. Ultimately, we succeed when our customers succeed — they are valued partners within Hornsby Tire Distributors. We will continue to scale up our company as opportunities are discovered, and we look forward to the future as we build upon our company’s 51-year history.”
Hornsby Tire Distributors was founded in 1967, and serves retail tire dealers in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi and Tennessee. The company carries passenger, light truck, medium truck, commercial, off-the-road, and agricultural tires and related products.
