DETROIT—RoboTire, the Michigan-based robotic tire changing and installation startup, announced a partnership with Creamery Tire Inc., a locally owned and operated tire service center founded in Creamery, Pa. in 1988.
Creamery Tire is deploying RoboTire’s fourth-generation tire changing system at its location in a north Philadelphia suburb at 4123 Creamery Road.
The partnership between Creamery Tire and RoboTire will use robotics, machine learning, and artificial intelligence to improve the tire changing experience for customers in Pennsylvania. RoboTire’s systems can help reduce the current hour-long tire changing experience to less than 25 minutes, allowing shops to serve more cars in a safe and efficient environment.
“We see a growing demand for safer and more efficient tire changing practices that benefit automotive shop owners and customers,” said RoboTire co-founder and CEO Victor Darolfi. “RoboTire and Creamery Tire working together to integrate our robots with their expert staff will provide the best possible customer experience.”
Added Creamery Tire CEO Joseph Franklin: “RoboTire’s systems are truly revolutionizing the way tires are changed, and we are excited to be one of the first shops in North America to offer this innovative service model to our customers”
RoboTire’s first tire-changing system at Creamery Tire began serving customers Dec. 16. Creamery has signed on to install additional RoboTire systems at two other locations in Pennsylvania.
