Love's have finalized the acquisition of the national lube and inspection services company Speedco, which will expand Love's Truck Tire Care service by 52 locations. Love's added tire care services in 2008, and expanded its offerings to include oil change, lube and light mechanical services at most of its larger truck stops nationwide.
“The partnership of Love’s and Speedco combines two top brands in the diesel service industry into one network,” said Tom Love, founder and executive chairman for Love’s Travel Stops & Country Stores. “Love’s and Speedco are committed to providing professional drivers with quality products as efficiently and quickly as possible. As a leader in the oil change industry, Speedco brings an important service to our Customers. We look forward to serving drivers at Speedco locations and growing the business.”
With the addition of Speedco’s 52 locations, the number of Love’s-operated tire service and lube facilities climbs to more than 320. Speedco facilities will continue to offer their current selection of products and services, including diesel oil changes, federal inspections and battery work. In the coming months, Speedco locations will offer the same tire brands and services available at Love’s Truck Tire Care Centers.
Love’s Travel Stops & Country Stores is headquartered in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Founded in 1964, Love’s has 375 locations offering bulk DEF for truck drivers.
