Griffin Brothers Companies is proud to serve the communities in which its businesses are based.

It all began when Larry Griffin, Sr. opened the first Griffin Brothers Tire Sales store in 1961. Griffin Brothers Companies has since expanded to land development and ecologically responsible waste management with roots in the Carolinas.

Today, Griffin Brothers Companies remains a family owned and operated organization that is strongly committed to providing the best services possible to its customers as well as supporting the causes of local communities and residents alike. As responsible business leaders, we remain active in the communities in which we serve through volunteering, sponsorships and providing employment opportunities for almost 300 local citizens. It is our goal to continue to expand and set forth new business ventures while growing the core of Griffin Brothers Companies.
