Sun Auto Tire Acquires 29 Locations

Oct. 19, 2022

Sun Auto Tire & Service Inc. has added 29 locations in three states with a pair of business acquisitions. The additions include a move into the company's 18th state.

Sun Auto Tire has bought TGK Automotive Specialists, a 24-store business primarily based in Minnesota with one location in Arizona. This deal marks Sun Auto Tire's entrance into the Minnesota market.

Collectively, TGK Automotive Specialists operates 183 bays and includes 237 employees who are joining Sun Auto Tire.

The second acquisition involves Toscalito Tire & Automotive, a five-store business with 33 service bays in California.

“We’re excited to be expanding the Sun Auto family of brands with our first locations in Minnesota while continuing to grow our existing presence in Arizona and California,” says Vice President of Development Chris Garman. “The TGK Automotive Specialists and Toscalito Tire & Automotive brands have been serving their communities and providing the highest quality of service for years which we will maintain throughout this transition and onward.”

These additions mark Sun Auto's fifth and sixth acquisitions of 2022. The company now operates 413 stores across 18 states. The company says it is planning additional acquisitions in the upcoming months.

“We are so proud to be working for such a forward-thinking, innovative and personable organization! I know each of us at TGK feel great pride in our business, where we've come from and where we are going,” says TGK Automotive’s Creative Director Julie Larson on joining Sun Auto.
