GREENVILLE, S.C. (Dec. 30, 2004) — In a bid to improve their positions in their markets, Consolidated Tires Inc. and Tire Centers L.L.C. acquired one commercial service center each from the other in South Carolina.
In the deal, which was effective Dec. 5, Consolidated acquired TCI's Columbia, S.C., operation, and TCI acquired Consolidated's North Charleston operation.
“This is a very positive move for Consolidated Tires,” the company said in a statement. “…Our company is now in a much better position than every before from a customer service perspective.”
Brad Snyder, vice president of commercial operations for TCI, said the company already has a commercial outlet in Charleston, but this deal will further expand TCI's reach in the market.
“(This is) a good business move for both of us,” he said.
