The History of Pomp’s Tire:
Pomp’s Tire has spent the last 75 years delivering auto repairs to satisfied customers throughout eight northern states. We focus on building strong customer relationships and providing the highest quality of workmanship on each and every automotive repair.
Pomp’s Tire began in 1939 when Andrew “Sparky” Pomprowitz opened a warehouse, passenger, and commercial wholesale operation on Roosevelt St. in Green Bay, WI. Under the name of Pomprowitz Tire Company, he continued to expand the location until a fire in 1942 burned the entire facility and all the stock. Pomprowitz rebuilt and combined the operation with Pomprowitz Appliance Co. When Sparky went off to serve his country in 1942, his brothers, Joe and John, operated the business until his return in 1944.
Pomp’s moved into recapping in 1952 and the business was incorporated as Pomp’s Recap Service, Inc. The business moved to the present Green Bay East location on Cedar Street.
Sparky passed away in 1964 and Roger Wochinske purchased the business as of Jan. 1, 1965. The first new outlet was added that year in Shawano, WI. Expansion continued in 1970 and again in 1973. The growth continued to the current point of 77 stores, 11 retread plants, one wheel manufacturing facility, and two original equipment manufacturing facilities with more than 1100 employees in nine states.
Owned by Jim Wochinske, we can now handle all tire needs from boat trailer to earthmover, retail, wholesale commercial, 24-hour over-the-road truck service, recapping, agricultural, training, custom wheels and rims, and more.
Come to Pomp’s Tire for service, honesty, and integrity.
