Tireman Auto Service Centers Opens New Facility in Defiance, Ohio

A new Tireman Auto Service Center will open on Upton Street in Defiance, OH on July 2nd. Tireman acquired the existing tire and auto repair business, Nelson & Bob’s Auto Care, from Jeff Hahn.

Mr. Hahn decided to sell his stake in Nelson & Bob’s Auto Care to explore new interests. “In searching for a buyer for our business, I had the criteria of selling to a chain that had the resources and desire to continue to invest in the business,” Mr. Hahn stated. “I wanted to ensure that our loyal customers still had a reputable service center that would invest in the ever-changing technology necessary to service them into the future,” Mr. Hahn continued. “Tireman has the resources and shares the same commitment to providing exceptional service at a fair price,” he went on to say.

“We’ve been looking to invest in the Defiance area for some time now and our entire Tireman team is very excited about this new opportunity,” explained Randy Jones, President of Tireman Auto Service Centers. “We’re looking forward to providing the same level of service the Defiance community has been accustomed to at Nelson & Bob’s Auto Care. I’m very happy that all of the existing Nelson & Bob’s employees will be staying on to make the transition seamless,” said Randy Jones. “Our plan is to keep the best of what Nelson & Bob’s provides along with a few enhancements. For example, we’ll immediately provide additional tire brands and online shopping at our website,, free flat repairs, nitrogen inflation, free alignment checks and the best warranties available in our industry,” Mr. Jones continued.

Established in 1948, Tireman Auto Service Centers is locally owned and provides complete automotive service for all makes and models, including alignments, brake service, suspension repairs, and other mechanical repairs. Tireman also carries a wide variety of replacement tires, including Cooper, Michelin, Goodyear, BF Goodrich, Uniroyal, Bridgestone and a host of value brands. The Defiance location will be the newest of 17 locations in Ohio and Michigan.
