“We are excited about the prospects that the Phelps expansion provides and the markets that it opens to our retreading and commercial footprint,” says Bob Purcell, owner of Purcell Tire and Service Center.

Phelps Tire has five Washington locations, in Everett, Mt. Vernon, Renton, Seattle and Tacoma. The company also has three Alaska locations, in Anchorage, Fairbanks and Wasilla. All Phelps locations are part of the Michelin Commercial Services Network.

Purcell Tire was founded in 1936 when Robert M. Purcell opened the first location in Washington, Mo. The company has expanded to nearly 80 locations, four retread plants and a fleet of trucks that provide pickup and delivery services to 41 states. With the Phelps Tire acquisition, Purcell Tire’s footprint now includes Arkansas, Arizona, Illinois, Kentucky, Missouri, Nevada, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, Texas and Utah.
