McCarthy Tire Buys P.J. Dooling Tire

Posted on June 27, 2017

McCarthy Tire Service Co. has purchased P.J. Dooling Tire Co. in Philadelphia, Pa.

The company specializes in industrial and off-the-road (OTR) tire sales and service, with a special expertise in foam filling and pressing.

“I am looking forward to working with the Dooling team,” says John McCarthy Jr., president of McCarthy Tire Service. “This acquisition is a great addition to our existing footprint. The Dooling family exhibits many of the same ‘service the customer’ philosophies that we have, so we believe it will be a seamless transition for their customers.”

Dooling Tire’s tire sales and service operations will be merged into McCarthy Tire’s current commercial location in nearby Trainer, Pa. Twelve employees, including brothers Greg and Paul Dooling, will join McCarthy Tire Service.

The Dooling brothers noted, “We are excited to continue our 110-year family tradition as part of McCarthy Tire Service.”

The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

This is the second acquisition for McCarthy Tire Service in two months. The company purchased the commercial division of Sandone Tire in May.

McCarthy Tire Service has been in business since 1926, and is No. 21 on the Modern Tire Dealer 100, and holds the No. 6 spot on MTD's list of the Top Commercial Dealers in the U.S. with commercial-related sales of $301 million in 2016.
