Fleet Brake announced Friday it has entered into a binding letter of intent (LOI) to acquire the assets of Pulse Heavy Duty in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.
It is intended by the parties that the LOI will be superseded by a formal definitive agreement with closure expected prior to Dec. 15, 2017. It is Fleet Brake’s intention to re-open the Pulse Heavy Duty location as a branch of Fleet Brake.
Fleet Brake says Darin White, a principal of Pulse Heavy Duty, and a former branch manager and regional manager at Parts for Trucks has partnered with Fleet Brake to lead the company’s Halifax operations. He will be joined by his wife Janice Rigby, former sales support manager at Parts for Trucks. With more than 60 years combined heavy-duty experience, the new Fleet Brake Atlantic management team is positioned well to support the company’s mobile customers in the Atlantic market.
“We look forward to expanding our network to service the Atlantic region. We intend to maintain and build on Pulse Heavy Duty’s history and reputation of service and dependability,” says John Bzeta, president at Fleet Brake.
Fleet Brake will provide further updates by way of news releases when a formal agreement is signed, the company says.
