TROY, Mich. (March 18, 2010) — Tire Wholesalers Inc. (TWI) is celebrating its 40th year in business.
To mark the anniversary, Troy-based TWI is holding an open house and anniversary celebration on Thursday, May 6 at the company's distribution center in Troy. The event is being billed as Michigan's largest gathering of tire dealers and suppliers and will feature 21 exhibitors and more than $15,000 in prizes for attendees.
Founded in 1970 by Ross Kogel Sr., who served as the only employee on the opening day, TWI has grown into the largest Michigan-based distributor of tires, with four locations serving the entire lower peninsula.
“I'm very proud of our company and what we've been able to achieve,” Mr. Kogel said. “We create a workplace where it's nice to work, in a company that gives back to the community. To us, that's just as important as selling tires.”
