A national truck stop company has decided to build a 206,000-square-foot tire retread and distribution center in the planned Westpoint Business Park in Monrovia.
Indianapolis-based Ambrose Property Group says Love’s Travel Stops will be the first business to set-up shop in the Class-A logistics park near Interstate 70 and State Highway 39.
Love’s, which is headquartered in Oklahoma, operates more than 500 travel stops in 41 states, including 380 truck service centers.
“As the demand for our retread products continues to grow, we’ll continue to look for locations around the country to open new centers in areas that best support our customers’ access to tires,” said Steve Phillips, director of tire sales & plant operations for Love’s.
The Westpoint Business Park is a 555-acre development, southwest of Indianapolis International Airport.
Ambrose says it has also broken ground on a 507,000-square-foot speculative warehouse. Construction is set to be completed in February.
APG says nine Class-A buildings are planned for Westpoint, totaling over 6 million square feet in distribution and logistics space.
