Coker Tire acquires European distributor
Via its acquisition of German tyre distributor Münchner Oldtimer Reifen GmbH (MOR), the Coker Group expects to gain greater access to the growing European market for vintage and classic tyres. The Holzkirchen, Germany-based firm will continue to be led by managing partner Valentin Schaal, who founded MOR in 1983, and the distributor’s existing management team.
Wade Kawasaki, president and chief operating officer of the Coker Group, believes MOR’s experience and connections within the European market for vintage and classic tyres provides a “great basis” for partnership. “Valentin’s dedication to providing the highest level of customer service and top-quality products to customers is a value we share here at Coker.”
