Raben Tire was founded in 1952 in Evansville, Indiana, by Butch Raben. The company operates a chain of tire stores in the Midwest. From a single store, the company has grown to more than 28 locations in 5 states in the Midwest and two distribution centers, along with three tire retreading plants.
The company offers tires to both regular cars and large commercial trucks, as well as selling wholesale. Retreads are commonly used on large commercial trucks and farm equipment. New tires are also available for numerous applications.
Raben Tire sold a stake in the company to Palladium Equity Partners in December of 2014, in hopes of expanding and accelerating company growth by expanding the company product both locally and internationally.
