OKLAHOMA CITY — Love's Travel Stops & Country Stores has completed its acquisition of Speedco Inc., a national network of quick lube and inspection service centers for the trucking industry, from Bridgestone Americas Inc.
On Sept. 15, Love's announced its intent to purchase Speedco, a provider of high-speed preventive maintenance services for trucks for more than 25 years.
With the acquisition, Love's Truck Tire Care service gains 52 locations and deepens its commitment to provide superior customer service, Love's said.
Love's Travel Stops boasts more than 40 locations in 41 states, according to the company. It added tire care services to its business in 2008, and the Speedco acquisition gives it more than 320 tire and lube centers altogether.
Professional truck drivers can now use their My Love Rewards cards at all Speedco locations. The Speedco rewards program ended Nov. 1, but Love's will honor all Speedco reward coupons through their expiration dates, it said.
The acquisition price was not disclosed.
