BURLINGTON, N.C. — Family is important to the Benton family, proprietors of Black's Tire Service (BTS), and BTS is using that mantra to grow its family again.
BTS has acquired Burlington Tire Service, a Burlington-based retail and commercial dealership that has been in business since 1973. Bill Anders, who operated Burlington Tire, has been a partner dealer of BTS for several decades, the dealerships said.
Terms were not disclosed. BTS has retained Burlington Tire's 15 employees.
"Bill Anders has always been like family to us, so when he decided to slow down a little, he wanted to team up and keep a legacy of servicing his loyal customers," Rick Benton II, vice president of Black's Tire, said.
Burlington is a city of 50,000 located between Greensboro and Durham in north central North Carolina on the northern edge of BTS' retail footprint.
