FleetPride expands with acquisition of two-location service operation

Updated Jan 20, 2021

FleetPride announced Tuesday it has acquired the assets of L&N Truck Service.

L&N Truck Service is based in Ellenwood, Ga., and has a second location in Albany, Ga. The company offers full maintenance service facilities in Ellenwood (to serve the nearby Atlanta metro area) and also provides a large-scale, on-site maintenance program to national accounts, including mobile maintenance for heavy-duty trucks and trailers. The company is managed by Chris Coleman.

“L&N is a dynamic company that will further enhance FleetPride’s service and parts network in the southeastern United States,” says FleetPride CEO Al Dragone. “Chris Coleman and his father, Norman ‘Ned’ Coleman, have developed a reputation as innovators in the heavy-duty service market. We will strive to continue to set the standard in parts and service with our omni-channel platform, supported by 285 branches across 46 states and five regional distribution centers.”

Chris Coleman adds the company is excite to join the FleetPride network “to provide service to its valued customers nationwide, and provide growth and stability to our employees. We are confident that by teaming with FleetPride, we can achieve both.”

FleetPride Senior Vice President of Sales and Operations Mike Harris says L&N fits within the company’s growing footprint in Georgia and the southeastern U.S.

“We have multiple parts locations in the Atlanta market to help support the team in Ellenwood, plus parts and service locations in Valdosta and Moultrie, close to the L&N service team in Albany,” he says. “Service is a key component of our growth strategy, along with introducing new e-commerce solutions that are coupled with the parts expertise of our FleetPride team members in local markets across the country. Our teams are really focused and committed to delivering solutions and value to drive the success of our customers.”

With this acquisition, FleetPride says it now has 48 service centers.
