“American Tire Distributors began servicing tire retailers across Texas and Oklahoma in July of 2004,” said Richard Johnson, chairman and CEO of ATD. “Since that time, we have invested in our facilities, our people and our customers and, as a result, we have gained new customers and market share. The acquisition of Gray’s is another investment that will enable American Tire Distributors to better serve our customers in these two states.”

Gray’s Wholesale Tire Distributors was founded by Harold Gray in 1975 in Fort Worth. Steve Gray, the founder’s son, joined the company in 1976. In the same year, Gray’s opened a second distribution center in Houston. Steve Gray has been president and chairman of the company since 1988. He will join ATD and will focus on customer development.
