Love's Travel Stops moves Texas manufacturing, distribution center to El RenoPublished: Tuesday, August 17, 2021 By: Jack Money Source: NewsOK
Love’s Travel Stops is rolling additional jobs into El Reno after relocating a tire remanufacturing/distribution center from Texas.
The center, which went fully operational last week, will retread about 100,000 tires and distribute about 250,000 truck tires annually to about 100 Love's Truck Care and Speedco locations across much of the Great Plains.
The 220,000-square-foot project brought about 50 new jobs to Canadian County, plus other positions that were filled by a handful of others who relocated from Texas to stay with the business.
Those workers are enjoying Oklahoma's slower pace, its lower costs of living and being able to get where they need to go without dealing with chronic traffic jams, said Chris Oberst, the general manager of distribution for Love's Travel Stops.
