Tire Group International, one of Florida’s largest independent tire wholesale distributors, has begun their hurricane preparation process as Hurricane Irma approaches.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott declared a state of emergency in all counties, influencing citizens to fully prepare themselves by going out to buy necessary hurricane supplies. The company was able to get a shipment of water reserved for its staff, and convey some calm as Irma’s future path waits to be determined.

“The security and safety of our team members and their families is top priority for us,” said Joaquin Gonzalez, president of TGI. “With a storm of this magnitude and the uncertainty of its path, it is normal for nerves to be on edge. Providing our team essentials, such as water, is just one less thing they need to worry about as we all get ready.

“We will be monitoring the storm advisories and be ready to enact our hurricane procedures as soon as we know more” he added.

Based in Miami, TGI carries over 40 brands of tires, distributes its own private labels as well as tubes and various lines of automotive products.
