FleetPride acquires Indiana business

FleetPride has acquired the assets of Hardy Brake & Electric, based in Evansville, Ind., with a second location in Owensboro, Ky.

Founded in 1950 by Alfred and Aline Hardy, the company was later sold to their daughter Sandra and her husband Bob Kerney. Bob has managed Hardy Brake & Electric for nearly 50 years, and in retirement he serves as an advisor to his son Mark.

“I am very happy to announce the addition of Hardy Brake & Electric to FleetPride,” says FleetPride CEO Al Dragone. “The combination of locations, culture, and expertise make this a valuable addition to our company.”

FleetPride says the acquisition of Hardy Brake & Electric will add to FleetPride’s nationwide network and give customers in Evansville and Owensboro access to FleetPride’s national parts inventory, heavy-duty expertise, and world-class supply chain.
