McCarthy Tire Service announced it purchased Truck Fleet Repair.
The company consists of a single location in Norfolk, VA, from owner Nancy Millstein.
Truck Fleet Repair has provided Greater Hampton Roads with commercial fleet maintenance and repair since 1980. All Truck Fleet Repair teammates will be staying on with McCarthy Tire, including Carrie Crutsinger who will continue to manage this location on Ballentine Boulevard.
“We’re excited about this acquisition because it’s a win/win for both of our customers” said John D. McCarthy Jr., President of McCarthy Tire Service. “It enables us to extend comprehensive mechanical services to our current customers while providing over 200 Truck Fleet Repair customers with comprehensive tire solutions from full tire processing management to retreading.”
“I’ve been in the commercial fleet business for almost 40 years now and am proud of my team and how we’ve built this company by caring deeply for our customers and our community. I’m now excited to turn the reigns over to a company that can further help our customers” said Nancy Millstein, President of Truck Fleet Repair. “I thank my team, our vendors and our customers for their dedication and I am confident that I’m leaving them all in competent, caring hands with the McCarthy Tire family at the helm."
Expanding Commercial Services Approach
While McCarthy Tire Service already has a strong Norfolk presence, this acquisition enables McCarthy Tire to take a more comprehensive commercial service approach in the Norfolk, VA market.
Almost a year earlier, McCarthy Tire acquired another company, Piedmont Truck Tires. This purchase allowed McCarthy Tire to expand its presence throughout the southeast in states such as North Carolina, Tennessee, and South Carolina.
