JACKSONVILLE, Ill. (April 8, 2016) — Continental Tire the Americas L.L.C.'s wholly owned BestDrive L.L.C. subsidiary has acquired Brahler's Truckers Supply Inc. of Jacksonville and will convert Brahler's seven service locations in Illinois and eastern Missouri to BestDrive signage.
Terms of the deal, which closed Feb. 1, were not disclosed.
The deal expands BestDrive's network to 18 commercial service locations and seven retread plants, including Brahler's in Jacksonville, which is being converted to the ContiLifeCycle retread system from a Marangoni Ringtread shop.
Brahler's principal Richard Brahler will continue to manage the Illinois and Missouri locations under the BestDrive banner, according to the company.
“As a solution provider for many years it made perfect sense to join forces after seeing the new products and technologies Continental is bringing to the our customers,” Mr. Brahler said, calling it a good deal for both companies.
