American Tire Distributors Expands to Former RSI Distribution Center

 

Lincolnton, NC-American Tire Distributors of Huntersville, NC, announces they will expand their Lincoln County tire distribution operations in the Lincoln County Industrial Park to include neighboring Keith Corporation’s 420,000 square foot facility bringing total operations in Lincoln County to over 1 million square feet. This move is necessary as a result of six acquisitions made by ATD since January of last year; making it the largest tire distributor in the United States and Canada.

 

The newly leased facility is adjacent to the existing ATD facility and will house American Tire’s standard product assortment, as well as, Hercules Tire which was one of the more recent acquisitions made by the company. Adding the new facility to the Lincoln County mix will mean an additional 12-15 jobs to the current employee count.

 

“One indication that an existing industry in your community is happy with their situation is when an expansion like this is announced. Congratulations and thank you to ATD for their vision and continued investment in Lincoln County and our work force,” said Bo King, board chair, Lincoln Economic Development Association.
