Hornsby Tire Company Breaks Ground on New Showroom and Shop

Since 1935, Hornsby Tire Company has been a familiar, family-owned business in the Southeast Community of Newport News. The groundbreaking of their new facility at the corner of Jefferson Avenue and 33rd Street marks additional redevelopment progress along the Jefferson Avenue corridor. The new 19,000 square foot facility will include a showroom, a warehouse and a 13-bay automotive shop. A joint development agreement between the City’s Economic Development Authority, the Redevelopment and Housing Authority, and the Hornsby Tire Company made the relocation possible. The Economic Development Authority will manage the building’s design and construction in a turnkey approach, and the goal is to deliver a completed building by early 2010.
