Gateway Tire expansion in Dothan

Things are rolling right along in the Wiregrass. News of a $9 million Gateway Tire expansion in Dothan also means about 30 new jobs will be added when all is said and done.

The expansion

Dunlap & Kyle Tire Company, which operates as Gateway Tire & Service Center, first opened a 200,000-square-foot warehouse in Dothan in July 2018.

When construction began on the new distribution center in 2017, Gateway Tire invested an initial $11 million.

Now, plans for a Gateway Tire expansion in Dothan have been announced. In the end, more than 100,000-square-feet will be added to the existing warehouse.

That means Gateway Tire Southeast can provide even more tire distribution to wholesale and retail locations in Alabama, Georgia and Florida.
