What put us on the map.
Snider Fleet Solutions has grown to be one of the largest service providers to the trucking industry. We’re now the 5th largest commercial tire dealer, and the 4th largest retreader.

We currently have 80 locations along major highways, and the number is growing. We’re 1400 employees strong, and independently owned and operated.

We always go The Extra Mile.
It’s more than a slogan for us. From Day One, everybody who joins our team commits to going above and beyond the routine performance of their jobs. This might mean taking ownership of a problem and seeing it all the way through to its solution. It might mean thinking creatively to solve a customer’s problem.

Our corporate support for this high level of dedication includes making a chaplain available to any of our employees who need spiritual guidance.

THE SNIDER STORY

John H. Snider opened this tire shop in Greensboro, North Carolina in 1976. He put operating principles in place that have evolved with technology, but have never fundamentally changed. They’re focused on giving service—to our customers, to our community, and even to the whole planet.

We grew because we served our customers well—and because we committed ourselves to staying at the leading edge of developments in our industry, always finding innovative ways to improve our service even more.

From one modest location in 1976, to over 80 and counting. We owe our growth to our customers, who have been the focus of the company from the very beginning.

The company lands its first big customer for mounted tires, Chemical Leaman Tank LInes. (Many years later, this connection would grow into our innovative, multi-state TRACS distribution system.)

Providing first rate service pays off, as we open locations in Cambridge, Ohio, Gelismar, Louisiana—and new ones in hometown Greensboro—to serve our growing mounted tire business.

Time for a new name—Snider Tire is born.

With our fuel hauler tanker business booming, we purchase Mileage Specialists, a Houston-based operation. In addition, we open a new TRACS facility in Thomasville, Georgia.

TRACS continues expansion, this time into Blytheville, AR; Commerce, GA; and Bluffton, IN.

We build a brand new truck tire center in Greensboro.

Expansion continues with the purchase of Cate McLauren in Columbia, SC, and the opening of a new commercial tire center in Charlotte, NC.

The company purchases Western NC Bandang in Asheville.

We launch our foray into mechanical services, starting a division called Innovative Vehicle Services. As it grew, the name changed to Mechanex and was offered out of 40 locations.

Recognizing the quality of Michelin’s retread technology, the company converts to its MRT process—and purchases 10 TCI locations in NC, SC and GA.

We purchase Consolidated Tire in Greenville, SC.

We purchase Maness Tire in Rockingham, NC, and Dunn Tire in Dunn, NC.

Innovation continues as we launch FleetSMART™, our proprietary information management system for fleet tire and mechanical services.

A new burst of expansion, with the purchase of 27 TCI locations in six states.

Our commitment to building the best team in the business is reinforced as we open Snider U, our dedicated training facility in Newton, NC.
