Garden Spot Frame & Alignment, headquartered in Denver, Pa., was acquired by Irving, Texas-based FleetPride Inc.
Founded in 1978, Garden Spot Frame & Alignment offers shop services to heavy duty fleets and operators in southern Pennsylvania, including repairs for trucks and trailers, alignment and framework, roadside and on-site service, mobile spindle repairs, and a full suite of towing and recovery services, according to a release.
It also has branches in East Earl, Lancaster and Leola. All four Garden Spot locations will become FleetPride Service Centers, bringing the company’s total to 59.
FleetPride, Inc. is an independent aftermarket heavy duty distributor.
Combined with the company’s existing branches in Harrisburg, Carlisle and York, “customers between Harrisburg and Philadelphia will have a full network of parts and service options ready to serve their needs, with additional support from FleetPride.com e-commerce,” the release said.
