Norwell, Mass.-based Sullivan Tire Co. Inc. has expanded its footprint by buying the assets of seven Stratham Tire locations.

The stores are located in Bangor and Auburn, Maine, and in Portsmouth and Brentwood, N.H. They will open as Sullivan Tire locations, effective June 5.

All of the newly acquired locations will continue to provide complete auto service, while the Bangor, Auburn and Brentwood outlets also will offer commercial truck service and products.

“Current employees at the Stratham Tire locations will have the opportunity to stay on as Sullivan Tire employees, maintaining the local relationships that have been established in the area,” according to Sullivan Tire officials.

“Sullivan Tire plans to renovate each location over time, remaining open throughout the process.”

“Stratham Tire is an iconic New England-based company that began in 1961,” says Paul Sullivan, Sullivan Tire’s vice president of marketing. “We are honored to add the Stratham Tire locations to our growing business. We look forward to serving their customers and expanding our community involvement in Maine and New Hampshire.”

Sullivan Tire has 83 retail locations, 21 commercial truck centers, 14 wholesale distribution satellite locations, two truck tire retread plants, two LiftWorks facilities and five distribution centers across Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Connecticut and Maine.

The dealership is the 13th largest independent tire store chain in the United States, according to the 2023 MTD 100.
