Zisser Tire Wholesale has bought a 130,000-sq.-ft. warehouse in St. Louis, into which the company plans to consolidate its three existing warehouses.
Jeff Mullersman of Zisser Tire said the wholesaler currently occupies 30,000-, 60,000- and 40,000-sq.-ft. facilities. The company is beginning its moving process, with inventory to follow. Mr. Mullersman expected much of the move to be completed by summer.
In a statement, Zisser Tire said the new warehouse was needed to support its fast-paced growth. The company reported $93 million in gross sales in 2004, up 27 percent from 2003's results.
Zisser Tire is the exclusive importer for the Chinese-made Wanli high-performance tire and also distributes various other brands.
