FAIRFIELD, Calif. — East Bay Tire Co. (EBT) has expanded its reach in northern California with the acquisition of Brandon Tire Supply, a consumer and commercial dealership in San Rafael, Calif.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Fairfield-based EBT's market reach now extends into Marin and Sonoma counties north of San Francisco, areas served by family-owned Brandon Tire since 1960. The 15,000 sq.-ft. San Rafael facility will be the company's ninth California site and 15th overall.
"EBT understands the unique and special community role Brandon Tire has established in its six decades in business," East Bay Tire CEO George Pehanick said.
"Conducting business in San Rafael is meaningful to the EBT family because of the long-time friendship we have shared with John Brandon and the Brandon family. John has been a dear friend and mentor for many years."
The location's name will change to East Bay Tire, and it will be staffed with industry veterans from both EBT and Brandon Tire.
EBT said it "will continue delivering on the same values and standard of service Brandon Tire customers have come to know, as these are fundamental cornerstones of EBT's successful business operation. We are delighted to further grow our customer base in Sonoma and Marin Counties," he added.
