McCarthy Tire Promotes Craig Roote and Kit Young in Horseheads NY

January 29, 2020 – Craig Roote has been promoted from retread plant manager to location manager for McCarthy Tire’s two facilities in Horseheads, New York. The store on Latta Brook Industrial Park Road handles sales and service for commercial truck tires, including 24-hour roadside assistance, and tire sales and service for off-the-road, industrial, agricultural, and forestry equipment. The Lake Road facility holds the Bandag retread manufacturing plant and mounted wheel program.

Craig has been an integral part of the McCarthy Tire team since August 2017 when McCarthy Tire purchased the GCR Tires & Service location in Horseheads. Craig was with GCR for more than eight years working his way through the ranks to management. Prior to GCR Tires, Craig spent 12 years at Twin Tier Tire. Craig will report to regional operations manager Adam Phillips.

With this change, Kit Young has been promoted to retread plant manager. Kit has spent his career in retreading. He joined Main Tire Exchange in Dansville, New York, in 1988. Main Tire was acquired by McCarthy Tire in 2012. Five years later, Kit moved to Horseheads with the team when McCarthy Tire closed the Dansville location and merged its operations into the Horsehead’s location. Since joining McCarthy Tire, Kit has done an excellent job as retread floor supervisor and earned this promotion.

“With two industry veterans leading our facilities in Horseheads,” said Adam Phillips. “I’m confident that we will reach peak performance. I look forward to working closely with both Craig and Kit.”
