STAMFORD, CT. & BETHLEHEM, PA –Synchrony and Service Tire Truck Centers (“STTC”) introduced an owner-operator financing solution that will be available through the Synchrony Car CareTM “Truckers Preferred” program. The new financing option allows owner-operators to purchase new tires and necessary truck services, when needed, without the worry of large out-of-pocket payments.

“The Truckers Preferred credit card is an important tool for growing our customer base and providing new and existing owner-operators with a new range of purchasing options,” said Walt Dealtrey, CEO of Service Tire Truck Centers, Inc. “Throughout the buildout of this program, we have experienced nothing but the highest level of service from Synchrony. Their team was attentive and helpful throughout our implementation and provided fantastic marketing support to assist our needs.”


Daniel Miller, VP Client & Market Development for Synchrony Car Care’s Truckers Preferred program said, “Tires and service on heavy duty trucks can be a significant expense for owner-operators and paying for these large purchases over time can really help free up important cash flow for other needs. Synchrony is proud to partner with STTC and provide a financing option that will allow owner-operator customers to access the tires and services they need now to keep their trucks running smoothly and on the road.”

Owner-operators can learn more about financing options at www.sttc.com or by visiting their local STTC branch.

About STTC

Service Tire Truck Centers (STTC) founded in 1955 by Walter Dealtrey Sr. in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, first operated as a 3,000 sq. ft. retread shop in the rear of one of Walt Sr.’s retail tire stores. The young company employed two production people, one salesman, and one delivery truck. Retread production averaged six tires per day. From those unassuming beginnings, STTC expanded its geographic footprint through strategic acquisitions, new store openings and always providing exceptional customer service. As of today, STTC has produced over 3,500,000 retreads, operates 49 locations in 8 states, and employs more than 850 people.
