Larry’s Tire, Inc. to invest in new facility 


A regional tire reseller is consolidating its area locations into a new 68,000 SF facility in Howard City.

The Right Place, Inc.<https://www.rightplace.org/> and the Montcalm Economic Alliance<https://www.rightplace.org/for-local-business/montcalm-county> (MEA) announced that the organization recently completed an economic development project with locally-owned Larry’s Tire, Inc.  Larry’s Tire, Inc. recently purchased the former Universal Products, Inc. building on 19342 Lake Montcalm Road in Howard City. The company intends to consolidate its three operations in the surrounding area into one location. The 68,500 square foot building had remained vacant for several years. Larry’s Tire plans to make significant investments in building upgrades. The consolidation will retain 30 jobs, with a potential of 30 possible new in the future as the business continues to grow and diversify.  “We were close to making an offer on a location outside Montcalm County,” said Larry Cole, Owner, Larry’s Tire, Inc. “But, representatives from The Right Place intervened after receiving a call from Isabella Bank. This location fits perfectly into our model, offers us plenty of room to consolidate all three businesses, and provides room to grow.”  

Larry’s Tire resells and recycles tires from major consumer retail stores throughout Michigan. Tires that can’t be resold are shredded and taken to the Pierson Landfill as filler. Additional tire shredding for landscaping, playgrounds and other uses may provide future growth areas for the business. “While the new business attraction projects get a lot of press, the retention and organic growth of local businesses provides great satisfaction,” said Kathy Jo VanderLaan, Business Development for The Right Place in Montcalm County. “Filling this large building in Howard City with such a business is the icing on the cake!”
