Message From The CEO
Thanks for visiting our website!
I would like to continue from where I left previously.
As we continue to evolve, we found that in order to service our customers better we needed to get a worldwide on-shoring program of our own. With this customer focused service approach, we acquired two well-established companies on the western side of USA. We first acquired the 7 locations of Interstate Tire Distributor (ITD) and then 23 more locations of A to Z Tire company – after rationalizing the footprint, today we operate 20 of our own distribution warehouses in the states of California, Arizona, Utah, Nevada, Montana, Texas, Colorado and New Mexico serving more than 15,000 retail customers.
We plan to expand our distribution nationwide in the USA and overseas so we can better serve our retail customers and ultimately the end consumers better.
Recently we have launched Patriot Tires, our PLT brand nationwide with a comprehensive range in the USA.
We are also launching our Radar brand medium commercial truck tires in the US in Q2, 2017. Which will be made in a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility with some very attractive tread patterns and features.
The year 2017 will be a major growth year for us. We will expand our distribution footprint both, domestically in the USA and overseas, cross the 1000 SKU mark in our Radar PLT range, launch the medium commercial truck tire range in our flagship Radar brand and launch the Patriot range internationally.
We are extremely proud of our association with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, this is our fifth year and we thank BCRF for giving us this opportunity to work with them. We are committed and we will continue to support and work with the wonderful people at the BCRF.
All this would not be possible without the support of our stakeholders – the financial institutions, the manufacturing facilities, the staff who worked relentlessly to get us to this point in our business and most importantly the customers. We thank all of you for being a part of our journey.
We will continue to grow and evolve as a leader in thought and action in our amazing industry.
Once again I thank you for your interest in Omni United, the best is yet to come!
Founder & CEO, Omni United
Thanks for visiting Omni United!
One word defines the values and mission of Omni United: Innovation.
Innovation and creativity is what drives me and what motivates my team. When we say innovation, we don’t just mean technical innovation; just as importantly, we mean new ways to look at every aspect of the industry, from manufacturing to marketing and distribution.
From the days we started working in Omni United, one thing was clear to me and to the people who were with me then: We needed to do things differently – there was no space in this crowded industry for yet ‘another’ tire supplier! So we started by finding out the “pain points” and discovered that tires made in China were starting to find a foothold in the United States but the inefficiencies were enough to prevent customers from taking advantage of an otherwise a strong commercial proposition. We started fixing some of the issues we encountered, providing the products the market needed, allowing customers to mix products from overseas in their orders, giving credit lines to domestic US customers…and business started to grow. With time all that we did became the norm in the industry. After all, it made perfect business sense.
We soon figured that the Chinese product lines would not be sufficient to offer our customers the comfort they needed, particularly because of the geopolitical and trade situation between countries. We started to move some of our production to other countries such as Indonesia, India and Thailand, and as a result, when in 2009, the US imposed punitive tariffs on Chinese tire imports our business continued to grow as we were able to provide our customers with attractive alternatives.
But innovation is continuous and we embarked on other projects such as getting our flagship brand, Radar Tires, certified as the first 100% carbon neutral tire brand. We started testing our off-road light truck tires in desert races against many of the well-established and premium brands and started winning those races. We were sharing the podium with those brands and thus demonstrating our winning value proposition. To show our support to a great cause we partnered with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and even launched a tire with a pink sidewall.
A few years back we noticed that the tire industry was probably one of the few industries with almost no interaction with the fashion world. We went on to develop a partnership with one of the most American fashion lifestyle brands to launch Timberland Tires, a first in the industry. This is the first-tire range that has been designed with sustainability in mind so that after the tire wears out, it will be reclaimed and recycled into the soles of Timberland’s boots! In addition to traditional distribution channels, we have developed a network of over 2,000 installers ready to fit the tires our customers buy online at timberlandtires.com.
We will continue to innovate and to find new ways to provide a better service for our customers.
