The acquisition from PetroChoice will allow JWT Equipment Specialists to sell and service these brands:

  • Rotary lifts,
  • Corghi tire changers and balancers,
  • Excel tire inflators,
  • Champion air compressors,
  • Cleanburn waste oil burners,
  • MacroAir fans, shop exhaust systems, and
  • Samson and Graco lubrication storage and handling equipment.

The 21 PetroChoice team members joining JWT Equipment Specialists bring with them more than 280 years of automotive equipment service. The company will have more than a dozen technicians providing on-site factory authorized service and installation throughout Eastern Pennsylvania, Southern Tier New York, Northern Maryland, Delaware and New Jersey.

Jack Williams Tire says the expansion is a sign of the company's "commitment to position itself for sustainable growth to propel it into the future and to continue to remain a leader in the tire and automotive industry."

The new business division will launch a website soon at www.JWTEquipmentSpecialists.com.
