“Treat everyone, customers and fellow employees, as you would a member of your family.” That is the foundation on which Bob Sullivan started Sullivan Tire in 1955. Today’s Customer Testimonial from our Marlboro store exemplifies that Sullivan Spirit!
Whenever we hear comments like this from our customers, it makes our day. So every Wednesday, we’ll be sharing a customer comment that made us proud to be a part of the Sullivan Tire Team.
“Just wanted to let you know I am so happy with Mike and his crew in Marlboro I have been coming here for years and treated so nice and professional I love the staff and mgmt. you should give them a pat on the back, they have gone out of there way for me and ordering parts for my car that should have taken days due to out of stock and I had my car fixed in a few hours. I am 100% happy with your team I had to send an email stating this thank you again a very loyal customer and will be for many many years and thank you for not only treating me like a customer but like family thank you.
Last week, we shared a customer’s wonderful experience in Weymouth, MA, and wanted to provide some more details on our newest retail location.
The location was formerly occupied by Midas, and was completely renovated by Sullivan Tire during the summer of 2013. The 6,750 square foot facility houses eight service bays. It is staffed by up to twelve full-time employees, including three Master Technicians.
A grand opening celebration took place on Saturday, October 19. Customers were invited to visit the store, enjoy refreshments and win giveaways. Plus, we raffled off Boston Bruins tickets and a hockey stick signed by Bruins defenseman Gregory Campbell.
Sean Galiano, a Master Technician and 23-year veteran of Sullivan Tire, has Managed the store since it’s opening. Galiano resides in Weymouth with his wife and two children, where they are active members of the community. Sean serves on the Weymouth High School Advisory Committee and his son is a Weymouth Wildcat Football player.
“I’m thrilled to take on this new role and to work in the community where my family lives,” said Galiano. “Sullivan Tire is a family owned business whose motto is to treat every customer as if they were a member of your family. For me, it will be especially rewarding to serve the family of Weymouth and to see so many familiar faces on a day to day basis.”
As you may have guessed, we’re big fans of baseball here at Sullivan Tire. From our yearly Red Sox magnets, to spending St. Patrick’s day at Fenway South in Ft. Lauderdale, to our great relationship with Dustin Pedroia, we enjoy every aspect of America’s favorite pastime.
This summer, we took love of baseball to a whole new level by hosting A Day at the Park for our employees and their families. All employees who have been with the company for 5 or more years were invited to spend a day with the Portland Sea Dogs, New Hampshire Fisher Cats or the Pawtucket Red Sox.
Employees and their family members were treated to a delicious BBQ lunch before each game.
At each game, a Sullivan Tire employee had the honor of throwing out the first pitch. At the Portland Sea Dogs game it was John Wills, the Assistant Manager of the Portland, ME Commercial location at the Fisher Cats it was Ryan Ward, a newly minted 5 year tech of the Derry, NH retail location, and at the Paw Sox it was Chris Bailey, a technician from the Bedford, MA retail location.
Each day at the park held a fun surprise; employees David Bubar of Bangor, ME Wholesale and Andy Benenato, the manager of Plaistow, NH retail won autographed Dustin Pedroia baseballs, and the Fisher Cats provided our New Hampshire guests to VIP tour of the stadium.
The weather was perfect for each Day at the Park, and a great time was had by all!
Thank you to the Portland Sea Dogs, New Hampshire Fisher Cats and Pawtucket Red Sox for being such great hosts during our summer baseball game outings!

On Sunday, June 9, the second annual Massachusetts Diesel Truck Show was held at the Brockton Fairgrounds to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation. It was a fun, family event complete with food, raffles and live music. Sullivan Tire Co was a sponsor, and showcased one of the OTR trucks as well as a 45/63 R39 Bridgestone L5 K2k tire that sells for $28,000!
On hand to assist with the event was David Bradley (the OTR Operations Manager), Chris Donovan (Tire Quality), Mark Day (Commercial Sales) and Joe Pettingell (OTR Technician). They spent the day meeting visitors and answering all sorts of questions about truck tires.
On Sunday, May 19th our Bridgewater, MA retail location hosted a Touch-a-Truck event in conjunction with the Old Colony YMCA. The event was a total success; the weather couldn’t have been better and many people turned out to see a variety of trucks, classic cars and everything in between. There was a bouncy for the kids, Blinkee the Clown made balloon sculptures, and the Sheriff’s Department processed over 65 kids for fingerprinting!
The Commercial Department had a service truck on hand with the mechanical arm that is able to move large tires around. Kids were able to climb inside the tires for great photo opportunities. They also brought along the second largest off the road tire (OTR) in the Northeast. It fits Caterpillar 992 front loader and sells for approximately $25,000!
We hope to host this event again and build on a very fun and successful day.
