Tire operation in Dansville shutting down

Sep 6, 2017

There are changes ahead for a tire service company in Dansville. McCarthy Tire,  a commercial tire operation which has more than 50 locations in nine states, has notified the state that it will shut its Dansville operation.

That facility employs about 33 people. An official with the Pennsylvania based company says that the Dansville location was leased, and since the company just bought a building in Horseheads, they have decided to move the Dansville operations to that community near Elmira. 

The company says all of the Dansville employees will be offered jobs in the Horseheads facility.

McCarthy continues to operate another location in Rochester.
