GOODYEAR AND BRIDGESTONE JOIN FORCES
The proliferation of tires has continued to expand.
Goodyear and Bridgestone, who normally fight tooth and nail in the marketplace, are combining their wholesale distribution networks in the U.S. and creating a 50-50 joint venture called TireHub. The new company will be able to provide tire dealers and retailers, with tires for 97% of the vehicles on the road. Passenger and light truck only.
TireHub will be headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia and will have 80 distribution centers and warehouses across the country.
The deal still needs regulatory approval but it’s expected to close by the middle of the year. The FTC process is under Hart, Scott, Revino and should be a very focused joint venture.
Bridgestone, Goodyear, Dunlop, Firestone, Kelly Tires, Fuzion and Lemans brands.
More than 300 brands and 4000 part numbers. Shortens the waiting time for consumers to get tires on their vehicles. These two fierce competitors are working together to improve delivery.
