Dunn Tire L.L.C. will move its headquarters and main distribution center to an 80,000-sq.-ft. building in the Buffalo suburb of Cheektowaga, N.Y.
The facility, in Airport Commerce Park near Buffalo Niagara International Airport, is nearly double the size of Dunn Tire's current 42,000-sq.-ft. building.
The lease was approved recently by the Erie County Industrial Development Agency's board of directors.
It will serve as a ``catalyst for our wholesale expansion but will also allow significant improvements and efficiencies in customer service to our current retail and wholesale outlets throughout upstate New York and western Pennsylvania,'' said David Simons, Dunn Tire's chief financial officer.
The new headquarters eventually will employ more than 75, he said.
Dunn Tire operates 30 retail and wholesale locations in western New York and Pennsylvania and posts more than $50 million in annual sales. It employs about 400.
