Southern Tire Mart LLC, the country's largest independent commercial tire dealership, recently received the first shipment of truck tires from Continental Tire the Americas LLC's plant in Clinton, Miss.
The challenges of 2020 have been immense, and commercial tire dealers are doing their best to weather the storm. As Bob Berlin, president of Orange, Mass.-based Pete’s Tire Barns Inc., put it, “We’re pretty much flat for the year — and we’re happy.”
Paolo Ferrari, president, CEO and COO of Bridgestone Americas Inc., returned to North America at an interesting time. He assumed his current role on Jan. 15, a few months before the COVID-19 pandemic struck the continent.
