FleetPride Acquires Portville Truck & Auto

The distributor of truck and trailer parts and services bought the assets of New York-based Portville Truck & Auto Repair.
Foodservice and JanSan distributor BradyIFS has acquired Hill & Markes, a similar leading distribution company serving customers in New York and Vermont.

Irving, Texas-based FleetPride Inc., a distributor of truck and trailer parts and services, has acquired the assets of Portville Truck & Auto Repair.

Financial details were not disclosed.

The Portville, New York-based company’s assets, owned by Chris Travis, include two main locations, as well as Fat Cat’s Recovery and Repair in Steamburg, New York; I-86 Repair and Towing in Belmont, New York; and Big Dog Heavy Duty Recovery and Repair in Kane, Pennsylvania.

FleetPride said Travis will serve as general manager of the newly acquired locations.

“Chris Travis has built an outstanding company,” said Cory Anderson, FleetPride’s vice president and general manager of service. “We are thrilled to welcome everyone at Portville Truck & Auto Repair, including their Fat Cat’s, I86, and Big Dog locations, to FleetPride and expand our nationwide parts and service network into new territory in the Southern Tier of New York and northern Pennsylvania.”

This acquisition is the third for FleetPride this year. Last month, the company acquired the assets of MTR Fleet Services of Cumming, Georgia.
