BestDrive celebrates ribbon cutting at North Little Rock, Ark., store
Sales and service location supports the Dallas, Texas, retread plant
FORT MILL, S.C. – April 15, 2019. BestDrive, a commercial tire dealer and retreader focusing on Continental tire offerings, held a ribbon cutting in March at its North Little Rock, Ark., location, which has been in business since last year. The store equips fleets with new tires and with ContiTread retreads produced in the BestDrive Dallas retread plant.
The location in North Little Rock was chosen in order to provide service and Continental products to the trucking industry in Arkansas. The 26,000-square-foot building at 1220 Baucum Industrial Drive is ideal based on its strategic position near an interstate as well as major fleet hubs. It also provides room for expansion as demand increases.
“Without vehicles, the world stops moving,” said operations manager Erick Oyemaja. “The goods stop moving and services stop. A store like BestDrive provides an opportunity to play a small part in keeping the world moving forward.”
BestDrive employees, the local chamber of commerce, and other community members attended the ribbon cutting event.
In addition to new and retread tires, BestDrive can help fleets select and implement innovative technology such as ContiPressureCheck® tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS), ContiConnect® remote digital tire monitoring, ContiPressureCheck Solo trailer TPMS, and Continental’s VDO Roadlog for ELD Mandate compliance. Services available at all BestDrive outlets include commercial tire mounting, dismounting, and balancing, 24-hour service, wheel refinishing, new and used wheels, air-up programs, commercial truck alignments and fleet checks. The stores also offer passenger, light truck, material handling, and OTR tires. For the most up-to-date list of locations, please visit www.bestdrivetire.com.
