PORTLAND, Ore. — It won't be long before Point S Tire & Auto Service USA has a seventh warehouse in place to service its growing affiliate network in central and eastern Oregon and Washington.
The marketing cooperative is leasing a 50,000-sq.-ft. warehouse under construction in Umatilla, Ore., a community of about 5,000 residents in northeast Oregon on the Columbia River. The warehouse will serve the Tri-Cities area of Washington: Kennewick, Pasco and Richland.
The building is expected to be ready by early in the third quarter, according to Point S CEO Walter Lybeck.
"It will help us with supply in central Washington, in particular, making sure we have product in place," Lybeck told Tire Business.
