Goodyear and Bridgestone join forces to form US national tire distributor

0

Goodyear and Bridgestone Americas are forming one of the largest tire distribution joint ventures
in the USA. TireHub will provide US dealers and retailers with a comprehensive range of passenger and light truck tires, which satisfy the rapidly growing demand for larger rim diameter
premium tires.

TireHub will combine Goodyear’s company-owned wholesale distribution network with the Bridgestone-owned Tire Wholesale Warehouse (TWW). The transaction will enable Bridgestone and Goodyear to grow their respective tire businesses.

At launch, TireHub will have the scale to reach the vast majority of retail locations in the USA daily. It will complement both companies’ networks of existing third-party distributors and provide a fully integrated distribution, warehousing, sales and delivery solution.

“With the ability to deliver the full portfolio of Goodyear products and a dedicated focus on driving logistics and customer service excellence, TireHub creates a winning proposition for us, our customers, and Goodyear’s company-owned retail outlets and consumers, whose expectations and shopping patterns continue to evolve,” said Steve McClellan, president of Goodyear Americas.
