Scarborough, Maine-based New England Truck Tire Centers broke ground in April on a consolidated facility in the city that will offer the company greater exposure and more storage, according to co-owner John Stevens. The 22,000-sq.-ft., two floor facility will house a warehouse, truck tire service center and Bandag retread plant, he said. The dealership houses its headquarters in a separate 9,600-sq.-ft. facility.
A grand opening for the new building, located near an interstate, is planned for the fall, he said.
ETD Discount Tire Centers, formerly known as ETD Tire & Auto Centers, recently moved it's corporate headquarters from Englewood, N.J., into an expanded facility in Lyndhurst, N.J.
The building now houses a warehouse, corporate headquarters and a 5,000-sq.-ft. retail outlet, said Dennis Columbo, vice president of ETD's retail division. The new outlet, which will hold a grand opening June 9-10, gives ETD nine retail locations in New Jersey.
The warehouse portion of the complex holds 65,000 tires, according to Mr. Columbo.
Along with the move the company changed its name to ETD Discount Tire Centers ``to reflect a discount mentality and a professional atmosphere,'' Mr. Columbo said.
