Rick Scott to Announce Jobs at Replacement Tire King’s HQ
Gov. Rick Scott, who was in Lake Mary on Wednesday as Verizon Communications announced plans to bring up to 750 jobs to Central Florida, will be in Palm Beach Gardens on Thursday, for a similar release at the new headquarters for TBC Corp., the governor's office announced.
Last August, Scott announced TBC planned to add 175 new jobs after acquiring Itasca, Illinois-based Midas Inc. and deciding to locate their joint headquarters in Florida, where 120 were already employed.
TBC, one of the nation’s largest marketers of replacement tires, is the parent of automotive service centers under the "Tire Kingdom," "Merchant's Tire & Auto Centers," and "National Tire & Battery" brands.
