A hands-on ap­proach to ser­vice

The Glengarry News - Glengarry Supplement - - News -

No one has to con­vince Alexandria’s OK Tire owner Stephane Au­bin of the value of hard work.

On this par­tic­u­lar day, he has spent much of his morn­ing chang­ing a tire on a trac­tor on a farm. He says he rel­ishes that sort of work.

“I’m a hands-on guy,” he says, adding that it’s not un­com­mon for him to be on the road at 2 a.m. so he can give some­one a tow or so he can change a tire on a trac­tor trailer.

His store, lo­cated at 3550 County Road 34 in Alexandria, pro­vides em­ploy­ment for 10 peo­ple and of­fers pretty much every­thing tire-re­lated and a whole lot more.

As far as tires go, OK Tire sells every­thing from brand new to trans­ports to re­treads. It also looks af­ter brakes, ex­haust, wheel align­ments, steer­ing and sus­pen­sion, and other small me­chan­i­cal re­pairs.

It pro­vides tire ser­vice to farm ma­chin­ery, RVs, trac­tor trail­ers and even ser­vices ve­hi­cles in the con­struc­tion and min­ing in­dus­try.

Three years ago, Mr. Au­bin bought Glen’s Tow­ing which pro­vides 24-hour road­side ser­vice.

EMER­GENCY RE­SPONSE: Fire­fight­ers work to dis­able a horn that was ac­ti­vated af­ter this ve­hi­cle was struck by an­other car in Alexan­dria last week.
