Wingfoot opens 41st Truck Care Center

Hot on the heels of the opening of two more Wingfoot Truck Care Centers last month, Wingfoot Commercial Tire Systems LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co., has opened its 41st Wingfoot Truck Care Center: a full-service facility in Berkshire, Ohio.

"The center is located on a Flying J property just north of Columbus, Ohio, at exit 131 along Interstate 71, a major north-to-south trucking route," said Clint Schrock, director of on-highway operations for Goodyear.

The three-bay facility provides oil changes and other preventive maintenance services; light mechanical services, such as brake, electrical and heating/air conditioning repair; and 24/7 roadside assistance to get trucks back on the road quickly. In addition, the new Wingfoot Truck Care Center offers Goodyear and Dunlop truck tires, plus retreaded tires.

Wingfoot Truck Care Centers, along with Boss Truck Shops Inc. and Highway Service Ventures/Patriot Farms Flying J, are members of Goodyear’s UNI-MAXX TRUCK CARE network, which encompasses nearly 80 locations from coast to coast.

"UNI-MAXX is dedicated to establishing a nationwide network of on-highway truck service shops that provide a consistent product and service offering and are committed to professional service for every customer," said Schrock. "Our intent is that the UNI-MAXX TRUCK CARE network will continue to grow, fueled in part by the addition of more Wingfoot Truck Care Center locations."
