About Shrader Tire & Oil

Gerspacher Cultivating Connections

Our History

Selling Tires Since 1948

In the spring of 1948, Jim and Bernie Shrader founded Shrader Tire & Oil in Toledo, Ohio. A true family business, Jim and Bernie’s children Jim Jr., Gerri, and Patti filled roles in the company after school. In the evenings, Jim Sr. would instill the importance of values like honesty, integrity and commitment as the family sat around the dinner table.

The business progressed over the years and by 1985, Jim Shrader Sr. handed the company down to his son. Soon Jim Jr. looked to the commercial trucking market to as the next area to expand the business. As the company grew, so did the Shrader family; many of which became the third generation to run the business.

Even though the Shrader business model ultimately changed, the foundation and core values that Jim & Bernie believed in still hold true today.

In the year 2000, Jim Shrader Jr. handed the company down to his son, Joe Shrader. Like most of our staff, Joe rose up through the ranks gaining valuable experience along the way by seeing all facets of the company.

Today, with 15 truck tire and fleet service centers, two state-of-the-art Michelin retread plants, and bulk lubricant operations larger than ever, Shrader Tire & Oil has become the premier tire and lubricant distributor in the Midwest.

When We Make Company Decisions, We Turn to These First

Safety First

At Shrader, we strive to create a work environment where safety comes first. As leaders in our industry, we understand the safety sensitive nature of the products and services we provide. We must work without distractions as nothing is more important to us than the safety of our team members, customers, and community. We continuously provide training, equipment, and best practices that ensure safe work environments are in effect. We believe that every accident is preventable and safety is the responsibility of every associate within our organization.

Extreme Customer Service

Our customers are the reason we have been in business since 1948. We must continue to exceed their expectations in all that we do with a positive attitude and consistent service. An unparalleled sense of urgency is the trademark of Shrader’s extreme customer service.

Team Attitude

When everyone works toward a common goal, much more can be accomplished. The combined efforts of over 200 people, pulling in the same direction, with great attitudes and a commitment to the team translates to a successful and efficient business.

Learn & Train

Our industry continues to evolve, with innovative technology and service expectations at an all-time high. We must remain committed to continuous learning, safety, job progression, and a minimum of 40 hours of training per employee each year.

Honesty & Integrity

For over 72 years, honesty and integrity have been the cornerstones for the foundation of Shrader Tire & Oil. These values must be embraced in all of our dealings with our customers, vendors, and employees.
