FleetPride has acquired the assets of Nationwide Truck Service of Louisville, Kentucky. Founded in 1989 and owned by Eric Adkins, Nationwide Truck Service offers a wide range of repair services from its 21 bays and mobile repair units, in addition to 24/7 roadside assistance.
The service center at 355 Farmington Ave. will partner with the existing FleetPride parts branch at 4670 Jennings Lane in Louisville, creating a complete value proposition for customers. Adkins and his son Jake will remain involved in day-to-day operations.
“This is an exceptional opportunity for our valued customers and our team,” said Adkins. “Our customers will appreciate access to a national parts and service network, and our employees will have the opportunity to grow and progress in FleetPride’s new service organization.”
“We are truly excited to welcome Eric and Jake Adkins and the entire Nationwide Truck Service team to the FleetPride family,” added Cory Anderson, General Manager and Vice President of Service, FleetPride. “Over the past three decades, the Nationwide team has become one of the most trusted, independent service providers that customers have come to depend on in Louisville.”
“Growth through acquisitions remains a priority for our business,” said Mike Harris, senior vice president of sales and operations at FleetPride. “We believe our value proposition resonates with parts and service business owners who are looking for 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 to our existing customers, including large regional and national fleets.
