On Thursday, March 12, 2020, Unimax Tire will officially change its name to Unimax. Over the last few years, Unimax has continued to enhance its product offering for dealers. Once a simple tire manufacturer, Unimax has diversified to meet the increasingly comprehensive needs of its customers. Today, retail networks such as Point S and V1 are true one-stop shops, offering a multitude of automotive products and services under one roof. With this in mind, Unimax is working to meet the needs of its dealers at every level (tires, auto services, auto glass, accessories, tools, insurance, financing, etc.). “It’s important that we diversify our offering to meet the needs of our dealers as well as our customers. Our new name simply signals that we’re evolving with the current market,” says Bruno Leclair, president and CEO of Unimax & Point S Canada.

As of Thursday, March 12, 2020, all Unimax retail banners will be managed and operated under Point S Canada. More than 860 stores under the Point S, Point S City, V1, Otobox, Prestige Tire, MÉGAPNEU, and Max Plus Tires banners will benefit from exclusive merchandising to further set themselves apart from the competition. “This is great news for our network dealers. They’ll get many retail-related benefits that will have an impact in their region,” says Bruno Leclair, president and CEO of Unimax & Point S Canada.
For over 40 years, Unimax has been one of the largest tire distribution networks in Canada, with over three million tires sold annually. Active in Quebec, Ontario, Alberta, and the four Atlantic provinces, Unimax and its partners operate more than 70 distribution centres across the country. Unimax is proud to be one of Canada’s best-managed companies.
