Special 25 Year Anniversary Highlight

When a first birthday or anniversary rolls around, it’s always hard to believe 365 days have already passed. It’s common to question where that entire year went. That same feeling of nostalgia and reflection happens every time a milestone is hit. It’s time for us to start our reflection again as we begin the Speedco 25th Anniversary celebration.

Founded in October 1991, Speedco has seen significant changes over the last 25 years. From our first store in Effingham, IL to what will soon be our 52nd store in Spokane WA, we’ve seen significant growth. Our store footprint will soon span across 26 states. Along with our physical location expansions, we’ve added to our service line-up to help us better serve you. What started as a quick oil change shop has turned into a preventative maintenance shop offering tires, tire services, batteries, inspections, and even some minor repairs.

The passing years have also brought Speedco under new ownership. Speedco began as a family owned business and quickly expanded with the help of a Shell interest. From there Speedco was acquired by Bandag then Bridgestone Americas. Change in ownership also brought new leadership, to our current president Chris Ripani.

Over 25 years a lot looks different for Speedco, but one thing remains the same: we wouldn’t be celebrating 25 years without the support of loyal customers like you. You have been our partners through it all. For that, we want to say thank you!

Thank you for being our partner, supporting our efforts to bring quality services to the trucking industry.
