The Hill family will continue to manage the dealership as Hill Tire Group of BestDrive L.L.C., according to Clif Armstrong, managing director of BestDrive.
Fred Hill is taking a leadership role with BestDrive's sales efforts and working with the BestDrive team on the integration while his sons, Allen and David, have taken management roles running the day-to-day operations of Hill Tire Group stores and retread shops, Mr. Armstrong said.
Hill Tire offers roadside assistance for metro Atlanta and north Georgia from its stores in Doraville, Forest Park and Cartersville, Ga.; the Valdosta store covers north Florida and south Georgia; and its newest store in Birmingham, Ala., services the surrounding areas.
The dealership was the 48th largest commercial tire dealership in North America in 2014, according to Tire Business' annual ranking, with estimated sales of $31 million, and was among the 30 largest truck tire retreaders.
“Hill Tire has built a strong reputation for quality service and people, and this provides a solid foundation on which BestDrive will work to build,” Mr. Armstrong added.
“Our goal at BestDrive is to be the leading commercial tire and service provider delivering the lowest overall driving cost for our customers. The addition of Hill Tire helps BestDrive work toward this goal by providing the ability to meet the new tire and retread demands of our customers in the southeast.”
