Dickinson Fleet Services (DFS) has acquired Outsource Fleet Services, with operations in Chicago; Columbus, Ohio; Atlanta; Dallas/Fort Worth and Southern California. Dickinson Fleet Services, along with majority shareholders Ridgemont Equity Partners, announced the acquisition on June 19, 2018. The acquisition will expand and enhance the on-site mobile service capability that DFS already has in these markets. The increased presence will enable DFS to expand on-site mobile fleet services and provide a complement of new shop facilities while servicing current customers with greater resources, according to an announcement. This is the third acquisition completed by DFS over the last 12 months.
“Outsource Fleet has a longstanding reputation as a high-quality service provider in the industry. We are very excited to welcome Outsource Fleet Services to our team, who, like Dickinson Fleet Services, is a leader in innovation and provides customers customized on-site and mobile fleet maintenance solutions,” say Ted Coltrain and Mike Dickinson, executive officers, in a joint DFS statement.
Since 1992, Outsource Fleet Services has been a provider of comprehensive vehicle maintenance and repair solutions. Outsource Fleet Services provides flexible, innovative solutions specifically designed for truck and trailer maintenance. Outsource shares a similar culture and dedication to maintenance excellence as DFS. The addition of the Outsource Fleet Services team and resources will complement Dickinson Fleet Services and provide an expanded presence in the represented markets and throughout DFS, the announcement says.
“Outsource Fleet Services is excited for the opportunity to join the growing team at Dickinson Fleet Services,” says Matthew Leffler, vice president of business development and son of former owner Greg Leffler. “For over 25 years, we have worked tirelessly to provide affordable, timely and quality service to our customers across the United States. We saw these values reflected in Dickinson Fleet Services. Together, we are positioned to bring tremendous value and scale to the industry and better serve our customers.”
