ROME, Ga. — TP Commercial Solutions L.L.C., the distributor of Pirelli-brand truck tires in North America, plans to open an office in San Diego, effective Sept. 1.
The company, a subsidiary of Prometeon Tyre Group, has been operating from Pirelli Tire North America's offices in Rome since it was founded in late 2015.
Initially part of Pirelli Tyre S.p.A., TP Commercial became part of Prometeon when that company was established earlier this year, combining Pirelli's commercial tire activities with those of China National Chemical Corp.
"This move gives us a fresh, new start and focus to strengthen our premium truck and fleet business for the North American market," said Alex Vitale, CEO of TP Commercial since June.
He replaced Clif Armstrong, who had headed the business since its founding.
"Moving into our own dedicated headquarters will also enable us to implement our growth strategy throughout North America," Mr. Vitale said.
TP Commercial handles sales and service in the U.S. and Canada for Pirelli-brand truck, agricultural and OTR tires and Formula-brand truck tires.
The new headquarters' address is: 12707 High Bluff Drive, San Diego, Calif. 92190.
