Salt Lake City, June 21, 2016. BestDrive, LLC, a commercial tire dealer and retreader, will be hosting an open house at its newest location in Salt Lake City, Utah on June 23, 2016. The new Salt Lake City shop and service center continues the increasing expansion of the Continental tire and ContiLifeCycle retread service network throughout the United States and North America.
The shop was selected for its prime geographical location to service and retread fleets as it further defines the BestDrive growth strategy in the Western United States. Customers have been requesting ContiLifeCycle and tire services specifically in the Salt Lake City area, which is located just west of downtown and east of the airport, a prime operating spot with ease of access from the highway. BestDrive is now able to offer premium products and services to the existing customer base in Salt Lake City while simultaneously earning new business in the commercial truck tire, off the road tire and industrial tire business.
“This is a great opportunity to expand the BestDrive commitment product and service excellence,” said Glenn Carson, BestDrive Director of Retail for the Americas. “We look forward to increasing our footprint throughout the Salt Lake City market as we continue to provide outstanding service to our fleet customers,” He added. “Finding the right people is always a top priority for Bestdrive shops, and Salt Lake City was no exception. We have started with a very experienced staff in this location, and we expect this to only improve over time as we attract highly skilled people in the industry.”
In addition to the prime location and highly trained and experienced staff, the Salt Lake City shop also boasts a spacious floor plan that for the open house on Thursday, June 23 from 11am-5pm.
