Love’s looks to continue to grow Speedco.
Love’s Travel Stops is celebrating the one-year anniversary of acquiring Speedco, a national network of service locations that provides quick lube and inspection services to the trucking industry, from Bridgestone Americas.
Love’s acquired 52 Speedco locations on Nov. 1, 2017, and has since built a new location in Pendleton, Ky., for a total of 53 locations. Love’s will continue to grow Speedco with additional locations that will open across the U.S. in the near future.
“Combining two of the most significant brands in the diesel service industry a year ago was one of the best decisions we could have made,” said Tom Love, founder and executive chairman of Love’s. “Both Love’s and Speedco are committed to providing professional drivers with quality products as efficiently as possible, and have grown to be the name you can trust for maintenance needs. When it comes to planning your next commercial oil change and preventative maintenance service, we have you covered!”
Earlier this year, Love’s expanded its Speedco tire brand offerings to include Michelin, Goodyear, Yokohama, Aeolus and Love’s Retread tires for professional drivers. With the acquisition, Love’s now offers tire, lube and light mechanical services for professional drivers at more than 280 nationwide locations.
