Gil Schoener, President of Branick Industries, Inc., and Manny Manos, of Westesco Distribution, announced additional Nitrogen units have also been recently purchased by Costco for installation in the United Kingdom. The Mexican roll out came one year after Costco installed over 400 Branick nitrogen units in their US and Canadian Tire Center locations.
Robert Moyer, Tire Director of Costco, said, “We continue to be committed to the use of Nitrogen for all of our tire customers because of the many benefits it provides, including better gas mileage. We also remain committed to Branick.”
