Bethlehem, PA based Service Tire Truck Centers (STTC) has announced the acquisition of Highlands Tire & Service (HTS) with three commercial locations and a Michelin Retread Technologies (MRT) retread plant.
Further Expansion in Pennsylvania for STTC
Founded in 1943 and continually operated by the Highlands family, HTS of Carlisle, PA was one of the first MRT retreading plants in North America.
The three PA locations are expected to offer more coverage to STTC’s customer base and more opportunities for STTC’s associates. “It’s an exciting time for STTC,” said Walt Dealtrey, President and CEO of STTC. “The addition of the three locations aligns with our growth strategy and gives us the opportunity to bring our industry-leading services to more fleet customers. With the Highlands MRT retread plant, we’ll be able to support our growth with better turnaround time while maintaining our high-quality standards. All of Highlands commercial business employees have joined STTC and the customer conversion has been very positive.” STTC now expands to 53 commercial service & mechanical locations, 4 MRT retread plants and 1 Oliver retread plant located throughout 8 Mid-Atlantic and Northeast states.
