Richmond, Va.-based Colonial Tire Distributors has joined the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company Authorized Retread network.
Colonial Tire Distributors, a subsidiary of Colonial Truck Company, which was founded in 1966, sells new Goodyear commercial truck tires and Goodyear retreads in Richmond, Ashland and Tidewater, Va.
Its fully equipped retread plant in Richmond produces premium, high-quality Goodyear precure retreads, including the G572, the G316 AT, and others, according to Colonial Tire Distributors President Bob Barkley. The company also offers 24/7 emergency roadside assistance through the Goodyear-FleetHQ business solutions program.
“Most of our customers are small-to-mid-size trucking companies, and we do some large fleet work, as well,” says Barkley. “Regardless of their size, fleets want premium products and services that help them lower their overall operating costs.”
Barkley says the company has seen an uptick in demand for retreads over the last few years, which made joining the Goodyear Authorized Retread network that much more attractive.
“We are proud to welcome Colonial Tire Distributors to the Goodyear Authorized Retread network,” says Todd Labbe, general manager, retread sales, Goodyear Commercial Tire Systems. “For many years, this excellent organization has represented us extremely well on the new tire and service side. We are delighted that Mr. Barkley and his management team have selected Goodyear to supply Colonial Tire Distributors with retread products. We look forward to continuing to help Colonial Tire Distributors serve its customer base.”
