Uniting two legacies.
Armstrong Tires was founded in 1912 by George F. Armstrong in a small New Jersey loft. By the early 1960s, Armstrong had become a well-known tire brand and the 5th largest tire manufacturer in the world.
Purchased by Pirelli in the late 1980s, by 2012 the brand was close to being phased out completely, which is when ZAFCO stepped in with the goal of acquiring and rebuilding Armstrong from the ground up.
Since then, we’ve been steadily working to bring back one of the most reliable and trusted American tire brands and modernizing it into a premium new product offering.
Armstrong Tires is now part of the ZAFCO family of brands, and our dedication to quality, value, and safety has proved a perfect fit for the continuation of the Armstrong legacy.
A family of solutions.
ZAFCO is a diversified global tire manufacturer and distributor with domestic U.S. operations and a respected portfolio of brands. But we’re also a multi-generational family-owned business that has always believed in putting people first.
Every Armstrong you buy is backed by an uncompromising level of integrity and service that has been ZAFCO’s signature for the past 25 years.
