KANSAS CITY, Kan. —Continental Tire the Americas' Best Drive L.L.C. commercial service unit has opened its 21st service facility in the U.S., in Kansas City, and plans to open outlets in eight more states by 2018.
The 32,000-sq.-ft. facility is located less than two miles from the I-35 and I-635 interchange in southwest Kansas City, which the company said is ideal for access for its long-haul, regional haul and on/off-road fleet customers.
"BestDrive is committed to helping our customers achieve their lowest overall driving cost," said BestDrive Managing Director Sonny Simpson.
"Our customers turn to us for our tire expertise and service excellence. Our rapid expansion over the past seven years is evidence of the high quality service we're able to deliver to our customers, and the value we're able to provide for them."
According to BestDrive, three commercial fleets have become customers at the new facility, including Linaweaver Construction & Hauling, a family-owned business headquartered in Lansing, Kan; and Seaboard Transport, a domestic pork production and processing transportation company headquartered in Shawnee Mission, Kan.
