U.S. AutoForce to Acquire Pacific Tire Distributors

Aug. 23, 2023

U.S. AutoForce LLC, a division of U.S. Venture, has made an agreement to acquire Pacific Tire Distributors, headquartered in Portland, Ore. The acquisition is expected to close Sept. 11, 2023.

“This strategic opportunity to combine Pacific Tire Distributors and U.S. AutoForce will further enhance the products and services our customers experience in the Northwest,” says Pat Hietpas, president of U.S. AutoForce.

Pacific Tire Distributors was founded in 2004 and currently operates four distribution centers.

“In such a competitive landscape, this opportunity allows us to combine the Pacific Tire Distributors and the U.S. AutoForce extensive brand inventory and product offerings while expanding our services in the Pacific Northwest,” continues Hietpas.

“It’s important to share the same approach with a family-owned company,” says Chris Roberg, president of Pacific Tire Distributors.

“The emphasis of a family organization will strengthen relationships with customers and suppliers and was the core driving force in the decision.”

After the completion of the acquisition, U.S. AutoForce will operate 68 distribution centers servicing 47 states.
