FleetPride acquires Nationwide Truck Service
FleetPride has acquired the assets of Nationwide Truck Service of Louisville, Kentucky. Nationwide Truck Service was founded in 1989 and is owned by Eric Adkins. Nationwide Truck Service offers a wide range of repair services from its 21-lot facility and mobile repair units, as well as 24/7 roadside assistance.
“This is an excellent opportunity for our valued customers and our team,” said Adkins. “Our customers will appreciate access to a nationwide parts and service network, and our employees will have the opportunity to grow and advance within FleetPride’s new service organization.”
The service center will integrate with the existing FleetPride parts facility, creating a complete value proposition for customers. Adkins and his son Jake Adkins will continue to be involved in day-to-day operations.
“We are extremely pleased to welcome Eric and Jake Adkins and the entire Nationwide Truck Service team to the FleetPride family,” said Cory Anderson, General Manager and VP of Service at FleetPride. “Over the past three decades, the Nationwide team in Louisville has grown into one of the most trusted independent service providers that clients rely on.”
“Growth through acquisitions remains a focus for our company,” said Mike Harris, SVP of Sales and Operations at FleetPride. “We believe our value proposition will resonate with owners of parts and services businesses seeking a succession plan, or a partner who can provide a long-term foundation for their employees and customers. We look forward to partnering with the Nationwide Truck Service team to continue their tradition of service excellence while expanding service capabilities for our existing customers, including large regional and national fleets.”
