Love’s Picks Tennessee for $8.8 Million Tire Retread and Distribution Facility

Posted on July 16, 2019

Love’s Travel Stops and Country Stores will invest $8.8 million to establish a tire retread and distribution facility in Milan, Tenn.

Love’s, which operates more than 490 locations and 330 Love’s Truck Tire Care centers and Speedco locations across the U.S., plans to create up to 80 jobs at the Milan facility.

The 200,000 square-foot-facility will be the largest of its kind for Love’s.

“Purchasing this facility makes perfect sense for our commitment to be the industry leader in the tire retread space. The Milan area has a strong labor market, and it’s in a great location near several key interstates. We believe this facility will play a significant role in further strengthening our ability to deliver the best value to our customers,” says Christopher Oberst, general manager of retread distribution for Love’s.

The company notes the project is contingent on approval of state and local incentives offered.

Love’s currently operates four retread facilities in Kingman, Ariz.; Atlanta, Ga.; Plainfield, Ind.; and Grand Prairie, Texas. Through its Love’s Truck Tire Care and Speedco locations, the company offers heavy-duty tire care, light mechanical services, commercial truck oil changes and roadside assistance for professional drivers.
