LAS VEGAS (Nov. 3, 2016) — Nationwide truck stop chain TravelCenters of America L.L.C. (TA) has created what it's calling the largest independent commercial tire dealership in the U.S. with the rollout of the TA Truck Service Commercial Tire Network.
Barry Richards, TA's executive vice president, made the announcement Nov. 2 at the Las Vegas Country Club outside the SEMA Show complex, noting the network's formation allows the company to continue to meet increased customer demand for flexible, efficient sourcing of commercial truck tires.
The Westlake, Ohio-based company, which has been in business since 1972, operates 243 truck service locations in 43 states and Canada, principally under the TA and Petro Stopping Centers brands. Those facilities include about 1,079 repair bays, nearly 3,000 technicians and a fleet of more than 1,600 of its RoadSquad Connect emergency roadside assistance vehicles, along with a growing fleet of OnSITE mobile maintenance vehicles.
