Rice Tire expands into Washington County

November 01, 2005

Donald B. Rice Tire Co. Inc. has expanded its services into Washington County with a new location in Huyetts Business Park.

In business for more than 49 years, Rice Tire specializes in meeting the tire and mechanical service needs of passenger, light truck and commercial truck clients.

The new 21,000-square-foot building on Business Parkway will allow the company to offer commercial tire sales, roadside emergency assistance, brake work, front-end alignments, mechanical work and more to the large number of commercial truck clients in the region.

According to Chris Chase, Rice Tire executive vice president, the Hagerstown location allows the company to better serve retail, commercial and wholesale clients in Maryland, Virginia, Washington, D.C., Pennsylvania and Delaware.

"Many of our clients already have trucks running throughout this region. From Washington County, we will be able to more rapidly respond to their requests for not only tires but also roadside assistance and maintenance," Chase said in a prepared release.

Chase estimated the project will result in the creation of 10 new full-time positions.

Built on a 2.5-acre site, the facility was constructed and leased by Todd Baer of Warehouse & Terminal Properties LLC. Baer estimates the new capital investment of the project at approximately $900,000.
