Purcell Tire and Rubber Company, the largest retreader for off-road tires in North America, will be joining forces with Michelin North America’s Commercial Service Network and Michelin Retread Technologies.
With the addition of Purcell’s 65 service locations and five retread plants across 15 states, Michelin’s service network will be able to offer homogenous fleet services at more than 400 locations across the country, according to a news release this week. Purcell Tire locations will offer fleets a service package including online reporting; Michelin on-call emergency road service; Michelin tire care, tire-monitoring and trailer repair services.
"By partnering with Purcell Tire, Michelin is securing a relationship across our entire line of business-to-business on- and off-road products and services," Bill Schafer, vice president of B2B sales for Michelin North America, said in the release. "Having Purcell Tire as part of our franchise network reinforces Michelin's commitment to independent dealers. It also supports our strategy to offer fleets the very best service through a national network of franchisees.”
Following Purcell Tire’s December acquisition of Quality Tire, the company’s retread plant footprint will also consist of three plants in Potosi, Mo., Hudson, Colo., and Phoenix, Ariz., along with two Oliver plants in Salt Lake City, Utah, and Billings, Mont., according to the release.
"After a 30-year relationship with Michelin, Purcell Tire is honored to be a part of a very exclusive network of dealers focused on offering the best products and services for commercial and OTR fleets," Bob Purcell, owner of Purcell Tire, said in the release.
