FleetPride, Inc., the nation's largest independent aftermarket distributor of heavy-duty truck and trailer parts, has acquired the assets of Pro Truck & Trailer Supply, Inc., including a 21,000-square-foot retail and warehouse facility in Lubbock, Texas. This represents FleetPride's 15th location in Texas.

Pro Truck & Trailer Supply, owned by Gary and Sandra Ball, has served the heavy-duty industry in West Texas since 1990. Gary Ball will join the FleetPride team as the Branch Manager and oversee the transition.

"Lubbock, Texas has a well-established economy with thriving agriculture and oil field services markets. As the economic center of the region, it is a perfect expansion market for FleetPride," said Lee Stockseth, Vice President Operations and Central Region General Manager for FleetPride.

"This strategic acquisition is consistent with our approach to expanding our national footprint," said Mike Paxton, Vice President Business Development & Strategic Planning. "Entering the Lubbock market will strengthen our presence in West Texas, give us the capacity we need to meet increased demand, and ensure that we can continue to provide our customers with the quality of service that has become the cornerstone of FleetPride's reputation."
