The new TCI center will provide OTR repair, casing management, wheel refurbishing, emergency road service, fleet inspections, 24/7 online account access and passenger and light truck tire service, TCI announced. Commercial tire brands Michelin, MRT (Michelin Retread Technologies), Superior, Sumitomo, Yokohama and BFGoodrich will be offered.
Michael Born, a TCI employee since May 2006, will manage the new center. Sam Shaw has been appointed service manager.
“With the opening of the Panama City Beach location, our Florida service capabilities will be enhanced, and our emergency road service coverage will be increased, providing much needed service to the I-10 corridor,” said Charlie Hudgins, regional director of TCI’s southern Atlantic region.
