USA: Acquisition strengthens Goodyear’s fleet business
The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company is expanding its company-owned presence in the US Midwest through the purchase of Raben Tire for an undisclosed sum. The Indiana-based company operates several retreading facilities as well as more than 30 tyre and service outlets that cater to fleet and private customers.
“The addition of Raben further expands our network and strengthens Goodyear’s ability to serve fleets,” says Dave Beasley, vice president, Goodyear North America Commercial. “Goodyear is already one of the world’s largest operators of commercial truck service and retreading centres and has nearly 800 company-owned commercial and retail tyre and auto service centres across the US and Canada.”
