FleetPride has struck a deal to buy the assets of Longview, Texas-based National Truck Repair. Financial details of the deal weren’t disclosed.
With National Truck Repair in hand, Irving, Texas-based FleetPride now has 28 locations in the Lone Star state, which is more than any other state. The new location in Longview has 16 bays and nearby access from I-20. The deal will be FleetPride’s fourth service center in Texas, joining locations in Alice, Corpus Christi and Seminole.
National Truck Repair was founded in 2008 by Jim Head. Justin Head, who is Jim Head’s son, will remain with the company as service manager. FleetPride will provide parts and service in the Longview market with added support from the FleetPride branch in nearby Kilgore, Texas.
“Today, National Truck Repair and FleetPride join together in East Texas; it is a privilege to welcome the new team members to the FleetPride family,” said Mike Harris, senior vice president of sales and operations for FleetPride. “Jim and Justin Head have built a strong foundation over the years with talented people, including skilled technicians and support staff committed to an exceptional customer experience. We have many mutual customers in the local market plus national fleets, making National Truck Repair a great fit for FleetPride.”
