The business currently operates more than 50 service locations and seven Bandag retread manufacturing facilities spanning from Georgia to New York. Specializing in fleet care, McCarthy Tire provides tyre and service for commercial trucking, industrial and off-the-road customers.

“This transaction is an important step in Bridgestone’s ongoing effort to evolve our commercial tire distribution strategies to better meet the needs of fleet customers,” said Scott Damon, president, Commercial Group, U.S. and Canada, Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations. “Partnering with McCarthy Tire will strengthen our distribution network along the East Coast and drive further growth for Bridgestone products and fleet solutions.”

McCarthy Tire and the GCR stores included in the sale will conduct business separately until the transaction closes.
