WILKES-BARRE, Pa. — McCarthy Tire Service has acquired Truck Fleet Repair, a single-location commercial truck repair and maintenance dealership in Norfolk, Va.
Truck Fleet Repair was founded in 1980 by the late Charles Marks as a provider of commercial fleet maintenance and repair services to customers throughout the Greater Hampton Roads region in southern Virginia and northern North Carolina. His widow, Nancy Millstein, has owned the business since his death in 2017.
All Truck Fleet Repair teammates will be staying on with McCarthy Tire including Carrie Crutsinger, who will continue to manage the location in Norfolk.
Financial terms were not disclosed.
McCarthy Tire Service already has a strong Norfolk presence, but the Wilkes-Barre dealership said this acquisition enables it to take a more comprehensive commercial service approach in the market.
"I've been in the commercial fleet business for almost 40 years now and am proud of my team and how we've built this company by caring deeply for our customers and for our community," Millstein said.
"I'm now excited to turn the reigns over to a company that can further help our customers. I thank my team, our vendors and our customers for their dedication, and I am confident that I'm leaving them all in competent, caring hands with the McCarthy Tire family at the helm."
John D. McCarthy Jr., president of McCarthy Tire Service, called the deal a "win/win for both our customers."
"It enables us to extend comprehensive mechanical services to our current customers while providing over 200 truck fleet repair customers with comprehensive tire solutions from full tire processing management to retreading."
This acquisition boosts McCarthy Tire's network to 70-plus service locations along the Eastern seaboard, solidifying its stance as the fifth largest independent commercial tire dealership in North America. The company also operates 12 Bandag-system retreading plants.
