Love’s Travel Stops has recently acquired Speedco from Bridgestone Americas, according to a news release. Speedco is a national network of service locations that provides quick lube and inspection services to the trucking industry.
Pending regulatory approvals and other closing conditions, the acquisition will add 52 trucking services and lube locations to Love’s network. When all is said and done, Oklahoma City-based Love’s will have 323 tire service and lube facilities.
According to its website, Nashville, Tenn.-based Speedco has locations all across the map, spanning from Aurora, Ore., to Harrisburg, Pa. Services offered include tires, lube, oil analysis, battery, federal annual inspections, repairs, trailer lighting and trailer patching.
Speedco and Love’s will operate as separate companies as the two get closer to signing a closure deal. Until then, Speedco will conduct business as usual. Currently, Speedco locations are open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on the weekends.
