WILKES-BARRE, PA, January 4, 2019 – McCarthy Tire Service, one of the top ten independent commercial tire dealers in the United States, was recently recognized as one of “Best Places to Work” in Northeastern Pennsylvania. This was the second year that McCarthy Tire has received this distinction.


Readers of the Times Leader newspaper voted for their favorite local employers over a six-week period. The Times Leader Media Group honored the region’s top employers at a reception in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, in early December. McCarthy Tire was noted as a silver winner.


In 1926, Joseph J. McCarthy started McCarthy Tire Service in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. The company has grown under a succession of McCarthy’s – first Joe, then his son, Jack, followed by Jack’s children, John and Katie, and sons-in-law, Neil Horn and Gary Lambert. Six members of the McCarthy family’s fourth generation are now part of the company’s management team.


McCarthy Tire Service has close to 1,200 associates in more than 50 service locations, distribution centers, and manufacturing plants along the east coast.
