Telle Tire & Auto Centers has acquired its 10th location with the addition of Assured Automotive in Eureka, Missouri, in December.
CEO and president Aaron Telle says the Eureka acquisition is similar to previous deals the company has completed. The store has been rebranded as Telle Tire and has undergone a renovation. Service bays now contain new equipment to provide the location with the ability to offer tires and full tire services in addition to previously-offered automotive repair services.
In addition, Telle Tire is now open only Monday through Friday in the greater St. Louis area to provide its employees with more time to spend with their family and friends, the company says.
In 2019, the company will also be more focused on improving processes and operations before further acquisitions take place. The dealership plans to implement a new point of sales system and is currently in design collaboration with Tire Guru.
“We recognize the potential challenges in quick growth and are excited to spend 2019 focused on deepening our values through our culture and ensuring our business operations fully leverage the synergies and talent within the company prior to further expansion in 2020,” Telle said.
