Irving, Texas-based truck and trailer parts distributor FleetPride has acquired Frame Service Inc., the company announced May 2. Financial details of the transaction were not disclosed.
Founded in 1948, Frame Service is a full-service truck and trailer maintenance and repair shop based in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
“As a family-run business, we have strong values, dedicated employees, and a focus on excellent customer service, which is a shared value with FleetPride,” Frame Service owner Barry Ernst said in a news release. “This acquisition will take our business to the next level and will provide our customers with an enhanced experience.”
“Frame Service adds growth in the Indiana market with broad capabilities in parts and service, and a wealth of heavy duty expertise,” FleetPride President of Parts and Service Mike Harris said in the release. “As we continue building e-commerce capabilities at FleetPride.com for ease and speed of doing business, expanding our network at the same time enables us to better serve local, regional, and national fleets faster to keep trucks on the road. We look forward to becoming part of the Fort Wayne community.”
Frame Service is FleetPride’s first acquisition since the distributor appointed Kevin Weadick as its CEO in April. Weadick was previously president of Zoro, Grainger’s B2B Marketplace subsidiary.
