NTB service centers now accept Wright Express cards

SOUTH PORTLAND, MAINE (August 11, 2003) — National Tire & Battery (NTB) now accepts Wright Express cards to pay for services at its more than 200 locations nationwide.

The acceptance deal between NTB, which features the slogan “We Know Tires,” and Wright Express, the nation's leading supplier of fleet card and fleet management services, gives Wright Express fleet card customers access to one of the nation's leading tire and battery replacement specialists. NTB also offers alignments, brakes, and shocks and struts.

“We are thrilled to be able to offer our fleet customers the expert tire, battery and general maintenance services provided by NTB,” said Michael Dubyak, president of Wright Express. “We want to make it quick, convenient and easy for our fleets to get the quality service they want and deserve and NTB will help make that happen.”

This agreement with NTB continues to extend the number of accepting locations and the automotive services available for purchase using the Wright Express Universal Card, a one-card solution that provides fleets an easy way to manage both fuel and service costs. The card makes obtaining services and tracking related expenses as easy as purchasing and tracking fuel – and all in one place. Through its new Wright Express Service Network, Wright Express will continue to aggressively expand the service options available to fleets through its universal card.

NTB was founded in 1997 with the merger of Tire America and National Tire Warehouse. It provides a wide range of general automotive maintenance services and offers customers a leading combination of speed, expertise, savings and convenience.
