Branick Industires Inc. announced that Cincinnati, Ohio-based Tire Discounters Inc. has chosen the Branick Membrane Nitrogen Systems for all of its new store openings.
Since 2004, Tire Discounters was the first independent tire dealer to inflate tires with nitrogen. The company continues to use Branick Membrane Nitrogen systems, Model 7400 Strut Spring Compressors and Model 2400 Tire Tool Stations in its 80 current locations. Tire Discounters plans to expand to a total of 140 locations within the next five years.
“After some research, we have decided to continue to use Branick nitrogen and replacement systems in all of our new stores going forward”, says Forry Hargitt-Tire Discounters’ director of operations.
“The quality and durability of Branick’s products serve our customers well and their personal customer service mimics the service we provide our own customers. Our business objectives align very well together.”
KOI Auto Parts, a Cincinnati-based auto parts supplier serving Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana and West Virginia, will be the exclusive provider of the Branick systems throughout the expansion.
“The membranes that are in their nitrogen systems are manufactured by Air Products, the worldwide leader in membrane technology,” says Bill Beckman, general manager of KOI’s Equipment and Tool Division.
“We’re thrilled to be a partner of both KOI and Tire Discounters during their expansion plans and am honored that they chose to include Branick Nitrogen Systems as part of their essential pieces of equipment,” says Brian Brasch, President of Branick Industries.
Tire Discounters is number 10 on the 2012 Modern Tire Dealer 100 list of top independent tire dealers. It now has a total of 80 locations.
