SEATTLE (July 28, 2016) — Purcell Tire & Service Center's recent acquisition of Phelps Tire will expand Purcell's service network to the Pacific Northwest — including three outlets in Alaska.
Potosi, Mo.-based Purcell and Seattle-based Phelps Tire disclosed the deal July 8. Initially, Phelps' eight locations will operate as Phelps-Purcell Tire through year-end, Purcell said, owing to the Phelps Tire brand recognition among the dealership's customers throughout the Pacific Northwest.
Phelps Tire operates five commercial/retail outlets in Washington and three in Alaska, generating an estimated $20 million-plus in annual revenue. The deal includes Phelps' retread plant in Seattle, but the plant will no longer be a Michelin Retread Technologies-licensed facility.
