AKRON — Goodyear has debuted an on-highway truck service network called Uni-Maxx Truck Care.
The tire maker’s Wingfoot Commercial Tire Systems L.L.C. subsidiary, and Boss Truck Shops Inc., a subsidiary of Bosselman Inc., are the network’s first two members, participating through their on-highway Wingfoot Truck Care Centers and Boss Shops locations.
The Uni-Maxx Truck Care network operates 71 on-highway commercial truck maintenance facilities. Many of the network’s shops are located at Pilot Travel Centers and Flying J Travel Plazas.
Wingfoot operates more than 170 commercial tire sales, service and retread facilities nationwide and has 37 on-highway Truck Care Centers operating in 15 states.
Members of the network will provide consistent products and services, a nationwide warranty and 24/7 roadside assistance, Goodyear said.
“Goodyear is dedicated to establishing a seamless, nationwide network of on-highway truck service shops that provides consistent products and services to all of our customers,” said Clint Schrock, director of on-highway operations for Goodyear. “The network will earn our customers’ trust through quality work, safe, clean facilities, and professional, friendly staff.”
“At Wingfoot, we are growing our on-highway presence to provide our customers with more convenient access to the products and services they need when they are on the road,” said Phillip Kane, president and COO of Wingfoot Commercial Tire Systems. “Our participation in the Uni-Maxx Truck Care network enables us to immediately offer customers a more expansive on-highway solution.”
