FleetPride Acquires RPM Truck Repair

RPM Truck Repair is a provider of comprehensive truck and repair services with locations in Effingham and Mount Vernon, Illinois.

Earlier this month, Irving, Texas-based truck and trailer parts distributor FleetPride announced that it has acquired the assets of RPM Truck Repair, a provider of comprehensive truck and repair services with locations in Effingham and Mount Vernon, Illinois. Financial details were not disclosed.

The acquisition extends FleetPride’s growing national footprint of parts and service capabilities, the company said in a news release. With RPM Truck Repair’s expertise in truck maintenance and repair, FleetPride said it is “uniquely positioned to support fleet customers in central and southern Illinois.”

“We are thrilled to welcome RPM Truck Repair into the FleetPride family,” said Mike Harris, FleetPride President of parts and service. “This acquisition aligns perfectly with our long-term growth strategy and enables us to continue building a one-stop solution for our commercial heavy duty customers. With our extensive onboarding and integration process, RPM Truck Repair is fully integrated day-one which gives our customers and new team members immediate access to our national network of parts and service for faster turnaround times. Our new technicians will also be supported with advanced online courses and in-person training classes through FleetPride Tech University. Together with the RPM Truck Repair team, we are well-equipped to serve the evolving demands of the industry.”

RPM Truck Repair is FleetPride’s fifth acquisition in 2023. In May, the company announced it had acquired Frame Service, a full-service truck and trailer maintenance and repair shop based in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

“The integration of RPM Truck Repair into FleetPride will strengthen our ability to deliver unparalleled service and support to our customers,” said RPM Truck Repair co-owner Shawn Fitzjarrald.
