Growing Companies Big Deal - Tire Review Magazine

Growing Companies Big Deal

Perhaps more than a little lost at the tail end of a July 7 news item we posted was word that Miami-based South Dade Automotive was ranked 181 in Hispanic Business magazine’s annual rundown of the Top 500 Hispanic business in the U.S.

CEO Jorge Pola and his team have done a tremendous job building their business, and in being an integral part of the local community.

This honor is a pretty big deal for the company, an ACCC member, and well it should be. Any time our industry is positively recognized by a notable national publication, it is a big deal.

The magazine also listed the Top 50 Exporters for 2008, which included four tire firms: South Dade Automotive, Tire Group International, Tire Masters International and Lucy’s Tire Inc. Congrats to all!
