Irving, Texas-based FleetPride Inc., a distributor of truck and trailer parts and services, last week acquired the assets of Pennsylvania-based Garden Spot Frame & Alignment.
Financial details were not disclosed.
Garden Spot offers shop services to heavy-duty fleets and operators in southern Pennsylvania, including repairs for trucks and trailers, alignment and framework, roadside and on-site service, mobile spindle repairs and a full suite of towing and recovery services.
The company is majority owned by Barry Simpson and was founded in 1978.
“On behalf of our entire company, we are happy to welcome the Garden Spot Frame & Alignment team to FleetPride,” said Mike Harris, FleetPride senior vice president of sales and operations. “Barry Simpson, Derek Snyder, Andrew McComsey and everyone at Garden Spot have done a fantastic job serving customers and building their reputation over the past 43 years. We look forward to continuing their tradition of customer service excellence, supporting their first-rate organization, and expanding the solutions, parts and services available to their customers through FleetPride’s experience and scale.”
All four Garden Spot locations will become FleetPride Service Centers, bringing the company’s total up to 59.
FleetPride last month launched its new e-commerce site.
