Location includes a new foam fill room, dedicated pressing area, and twice as much inventory space.
WILKES-BARRE, PA, August 4, 2020 – McCarthy Tire Service has moved its industrial services business from the City of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to the company’s new location in Levittown, Pennsylvania. The move was effective on August 3, 2020.
In June, McCarthy Tire relocated its commercial tire business from Bensalem, Pennsylvania, to the Levittown facility. The company renovated the 40,000 square foot building to operate the truck and bus tire division on one side and the industrial services division on the other. The industrial portion includes a custom-built foam fill room, a dedicated space for the large industrial tire hydraulic press, and an expansive area for industrial tire and track inventory.
“Our industrial services division had outgrown the building in Philadelphia,” said John D. McCarthy Jr. “The larger building allowed us to set up a streamlined production area using the best practices we’ve learned in our retread plants. Co-locating our industrial services and our commercial tire center in a site so close to the interstate highways will improve the way we ship and receive product for our customers.”
McCarthy Tire has offered industrial tire services since Joseph J. McCarthy started the company in 1926. It acquired P.J. Dooling Tire Company in Philadelphia, a regional leader in solid tire pressing and foam filling, in 2017. The purchase expanded McCarthy Tire’s capabilities for industrial and off-the-road (OTR) tire work in southeastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
The industrial and OTR division has grown in recent years. In addition to its foam filling and tire pressing services, it now offers rubber tracks, a wheel exchange program, and consultation services for customers in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey, and northern Virginia. The company sells and services industrial tires and tracks for heavy machinery, skid steers, reach and forklifts, stackers, and handlers. The equipment is used in manufacturing and production facilities, warehouses and distribution centers, construction sites, ports and airports, military installations, farms, logging sites, and waste and recycling centers.
The new address is 1901 Hartel Avenue, Levittown, Pennsylvania, 19057. The phone number is 267-522-8046, and the fax number is 267-522-8051.
