Hornsby Tire Distributors Adds New Ala. Warehouse

Ariton, Ala.-based Hornsby Tire Distributors has expanded its geographical footprint into the Huntsville, Ala., market with the opening of its newest distribution center.

The June 13 expansion gives Hornsby, an independent regional wholesale tire distributor, a third warehouse within the state of Alabama and will allow the company to leverage additional efficiencies across the entire state and into its other markets in the Panhandle of Florida, southern Georgia, and eastern Mississippi, the company said.

“The new distribution center completes one of several strategic objectives toward further expansion within our region,” said Hornsby President Steve Mattis. “This expansion will allow tire dealers in the Huntsville market access to our successful programs and purchasing power. This industry has experienced substantial change in many aspects over the last several years – there is an acute need for additional options within the Huntsville market and we look forward to providing an additional solution.”

The company will be hiring several employees for the new distribution center.
 
Founded in 1967, Hornsby Tire Distributors carries tires for passenger, light truck, medium truck, OTR, agriculture and commercial applications.
