FINDLAY, OHIO, November 5, 2013 – Hercules Tire is pleased to announce the December 2013 opening of its newest TDW (Tire Dealer’s Warehouse) branch in Seattle, Wash., which is the company’s fifteenth TDW location. The 40 thousand square foot facility in Washington South Sound will feature TDW’s new Rapid Delivery Service (RDS) - free delivery with twice-a-day, same-day and express options to most areas.
“We have been servicing the Seattle market out of our Portland, Ore. location since its opening in 2007. The reason for establishing a physical presence in Seattle is simple - better service,” said Bill Trimarco, president and CEO of the Hercules Tire & Rubber Company. “Increasing delivery routes and accessibility to will call in the Seattle metro market will provide our customers with more options to compete in today’s market.”
The warehouse boasts approximately 1 million cubic feet, eight docks and a will call area, and is easily accessible from Seattle’s GW 167 and I-5. In addition to the Seattle metro area, the new TDW location will service the entire North Washington area.
“We’re looking forward to providing Seattle’s independent tire dealers with outstanding value and service,” said Trimarco.
