“We’re in an industry that is very fragmented - even with all the M&A activity going on - with lots of opportunity," Chris Garman, Sun Auto Tire's vice president of business development, told MTD Editor Mike Manges.

To date in 2021, Sun Auto Tire has acquired 11 "automotive service brands" and has entered 12 new states, adding 180 total locations to its total footprint.
