A new on-highway truck service network has been formed by Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. to assist drivers who are in need of roadside service.

The Uni-Maxx Truck Care network will be administered by Goodyear. The first two members of the new network are Wingfoot Commercial Tire Systems, a subsidiary of Goodyear, and Boss Truck Shops, a subsidiary of Bosselman Inc.

In all, the Uni-Maxx Truck Care network includes 71 on-highway commercial truck maintenance facilities, many of those located at Pilot Travel Centers and Flying J Travel Plazas.

“Goodyear is dedicated to establishing a seamless, nationwide network of on-highway truck service shops that provides consistent products and services to all of our customers,” said Clint Schrock, director of on-highway operations for Goodyear. “The network will earn our customers’ trust through quality work; safe, clean facilities; and professional, friendly staff.”

Members of the network will provide consistent products and services, a nationwide warranty, and 24/7 roadside assistance.

“Participating in this network broadens the Boss Shops footprint across the country in the truck repair business,” said Chuck Bosselman, chairman of Bosselman Inc. “We’re excited about the benefits the Uni-Maxx Truck Care network provides to Boss’ existing and new customers. Uni-Maxx Truck Care will help us and other network members take care of our customers and gain their trust.”

Wingfoot has 37 on-highway Truck Care Centers located in 15 states.

“At Wingfoot, we are growing our on-highway presence to provide our customers with more convenient access to the products and services they need when they are on the road,” said Phillip Kane, president & COO of Wingfoot Commercial Tire Systems. “Our participation in the Uni-Maxx Truck Care network enables us to immediately offer customers a more expansive on-highway solution.”
