FleetPride acquires Midwestern truck, trailer parts provider

FleetPride announced it has acquired the assets of TransAm Truck and Trailer Parts of Rockford, Ill.

The company was founded by Frank Carlson in 1989, who has owned and operated the business ever since. Rockford is a new market for FleetPride, and the acquisition of TransAm will give the company a total of 11 locations in Illinois, the company says.

“We wanted to find a good partner that would assure a great transition and future, not only for our customer base, but for our employees as well,” says Carlson. “For over 30 years, our company slogan has been ‘Dealing with the Best.’ By joining forces with FleetPride, that tradition of service continues.”

Mike Harris, FleetPride senior vice president sales and branch operations, says, “Frank Carlson and his team are going to be a great addition as we welcome them into the FleetPride family. Customers in the Rockford market rely on TransAm for heavy-duty expertise and availability. We want to enhance this experience with additional inventory, expanded product lines and increased replenishment from our nearby regional distribution center in Elgin.”

In August, FleetPride acquired the assets of Triple K Fleet Services, based in Harrisburg, Pa., with two other locations in Carlisle and York.
