FleetPride Adds Location In Colorado

Heavy-duty aftermarket distributor FleetPride Inc. added a location in Montrose, Colo., and the location’s grand opening in November attracted 80 customers from the local market and more than a dozen FleetPride vendors.

The expansion was a result of the company’s acquisition of Colton Truck Supply earlier this year.

“The acquisition of Colton Truck Supply has been a big success,” Mike Harris, FleetPride senior vice president of sales and branch operations, said in a statement. “Our strategy is to identify well-run businesses that will fit into our culture, enhance our capabilities to reach more customers and create incremental growth for FleetPride.”

FleetPride, which is based in Irving, Texas, operates more than 260 locations in 45 states and carries over 400 nationally recognized brands of truck and trailer parts — making it the nation’s largest distributor in the independent heavy-duty aftermarket channel, according to the company.
