Tire distributor moves into new HQ
A tire distributor has a new headquarters in the area.
RHD Tire said last month that it has moved its headquarters to Wyoming, at 650 36th St. SE, from its former site in Grandville.
The new 108,000-square-foot facility features administrative and warehousing space. The company's previous headquarters was 42,000 square feet.
RHD Tire also has a 55,000-square-foot warehouse for distribution in metro Detroit.
RHD Tire co-owner Kevin Haviland said the new headquarters facilitates the company's "continued growth strategy, by allowing additional lines of business and greater efficiencies.”
Founded in 1972 in Grand Rapids, RHD Tire distributes a variety of passenger and light truck tire brands, including Bridgestone, Goodyear, Pirelli, Michelin, Yokohama, Hankook and Continental.
Its staff has grown from 12 employees in 2006 to 55 employees.
