FORT SMITH, Ark. — Wingfoot Commercial Tire has continued its on-highway expansion by opening a truck care center in Kenly, N.C.

The new service center in Kenly is located at 1810 Princeton-Kenly Road on Interstate 95, exit 106, on the Flying J property.

The truck care center provides trucking fleets with preventative maintenance service, including oil changes, and light mechanical service, such as brake, electrical, and heating/air conditioning repairs.  In addition, the center offers new and retreaded tires, along with 24/7 roadside assistance to get trucks back on the road quickly, reducing downtime.

 “Kenly is the third Wingfoot Truck Care Center located on I-95 between Florida and Virginia. We have been listening to our customers and are strategically locating facilities to better serve their needs,” said Clint Schrock, director of on-highway operations.

“We plan to continue our expansion across the United States, making our services, products, and information available in more locations,” Schrock said.

Headquartered here, Wingfoot Commercial Tire Systems, a wholly owned subsidiary of The Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company, operates more than 140 commercial tire sales, service and retread facilities nationwide.

With this new addition, Wingfoot Commercial Tire Systems has 36 on-highway Truck Care Centers operating in 15 states.
