GREENVILLE, S.C. — Love’s Travel Stops will feature Michelin truck tires and related products and will begin expanding the services offered at many of their locations to include tire and emergency road service.
Michelin Americas Truck Tires and Love’s Travel Stops have signed a cooperative agreement that will expand service to the trucking industry, which begins in May 2008.
“Our intention is to grow this additional service rapidly to reach the critical mass necessary to become a true alternative for the trucking industry,” said Kevin McCarthy, divisional manager of Tire Sales and Services for Love’s. “Before the end of 2009, we will have enabled 100 locations to carry the new Love’s Tire Care banner and offer emergency road service along their key access corridors as well as tire sales and services.”
Love’s is a family owned business headquartered in Oklahoma. The company began in 1964 when founder, Tom Love, opened his first filling station in Western Oklahoma. Expanding locations and adding convenience store operations over the next two decades, the company opened the first Love’s Travel Stop in Amarillo, Texas in 1981.
