Regional distributor Capital Tire has moved one of its 10 warehouses to better serve customers.
The South Bend Tribune reported that Capital Tire’s warehouse in Elkhart, Indiana was moved to South Bend earlier this month. Company President Tom Geiger Jr. told the newspaper that the move was made to “get closer to the retailer purchasers.” He said the 32-mile move from its 10,000-square-foot Elkhart warehouse to the new South Bend location will give the company three-times the size, meaning more storage.
Based out of Toledo, Ohio, Capital Tire has 10 locations across Michigan, Ohio and Indiana and its new location in South Bend will serve as its most western spot. In 2006, the company marked 60 years of being a Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. distributor. Last month, the company’s founder and CEO, Thomas B. Geiger died at the age of 86.
