HUNTERSVILLE, N.C.—American Tire Distributors Inc. said it has acquired the assets of TriCan Tire Distributors in Edmonton, Alberta.
American Tire Distributors will operate TriCan as a standalone business unit, the company said. TriCan will retain its company name and its management team, led by Chris Fletcher, its president since 2006.
ATD said it plans to begin expanding TriCan's existing distribution centers in 2013 to support a broader product screen offering to customers. ATD also will add several distribution centers across Canada by opening Greenfield locations and potentially acquiring other Canadian distributors.
