GB Auto Acquires Evans Tire & Service Centers

GB Auto Service, a portfolio company of the Greenbriar Equity Group, has acquired Evans Tire & Service Centers. Financial details of the transaction were not disclosed.

Founded in 1976, Evans operates 18 locations in the San Diego area, from Chula Vista in the south to Vista in the north and El Cajon in the east. The company’s recent expansion efforts included three new shops in 2017 and one more last year.

In addition to tire sales, the company offers oil changes, brake service, fluid exchange, factory-scheduled maintenance, shocks and struts, cooling system service, and battery work.

John Daileader, managing partner at Greenbriar (Rye, NY), declined to comment on how the deal fits into the existing GB Auto Service platform.

GB provides automotive aftermarket repair service from about 65 retail locations in the Southwest. The company operates under the BRAKEmax, Tire Works and Ramona brands, offering tire replacement, brake repair and other undercar services, as well as alignment work, A/C service, exhaust work and oil changes.
