Terry’s Tire Town Adds Mass. Distribution Center

Terry's Tire Town has opened a new 135,000-square-foot distribution center in East Taunton, Mass., bringing its total number of warehouses to 11 across the Eastern and Midwestern U.S.

Terry’s Tire Town has opened a new 135,000-square-foot distribution center in East Taunton, Mass., which the company said employs new technology to optimize efficiency, safety and customer service. The warehouse replaces a smaller, leased facility in nearby Brockton, Mass.

“Our whole team is excited to transition into such a state-of-the-art distribution center,’’ said Dominick Wycoff, regional vice president for the Northeast. “The expansion allows increased tire inventory, the addition of new product lines and brands, and state-of-the-art customer service capabilities through new computer and phone systems.”

Within the warehouse, electronic pickers glide on a wire system. Inventory replenishes through an automated system that restocks products based on customer demand.  

“We have combined the best practices of our entire company into this facility,’’ said Jon Garrity, vice president of supply chain for Alliance, Ohio-based Terry’s Tire Town. “These technologies and business processes will provide our customers with an exceptional product offering and delivery service. We have implemented new technologies and business processes to support our historical commitment to customer satisfaction.”

The East Taunton expansion follows a series of acquisitions resulting from a strategic partnership in November 2010 between Terry’s Tire Town CEO Will Tolerton and Talisman Capital Partners.

In February 2011, Terry’s acquired the tire wholesaler Summit of New England, with Brockton among its facilities, in addition to distribution centers in Nashua, N.H., and Westbrook, Maine. Since then, the Nashua facility more than doubled in size to nearly 64,000 square feet, according to the company.

In November 2011, Terry’s acquired Englewood Tire Wholesale’s five East Coast distribution centers in Happauge, N.Y., East Hartford, Conn., and Lyndhurst, West Deptford and West Middlesex, N.J. That move also allowed Terry’s to expand the reach and scope of its associate dealer programs in multiple brands, according to the company.

Currently, Terry’s Tire Town stocks more than 1 million tires on an average day in all sizes and brands in 11 warehouses across the Eastern and Midwestern U.S., while providing consistent administration of American Car Care Centers and Eco Express programs in 12 states.
