FleetPride has acquired the assets of Garden Spot Frame & Alignment, based in Denver, Pennsylvania. 

Garden Spot was founded in 1978 and majority owned by Barry Simpson. The company has four total locations: Denver, East Earl, Lancaster and Leola.

Garden Spot offers a wide variety of 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. Garden Spot also is known throughout the east coast for delivering best-in-class customer service and a relentless dedication to quality and accountability in everything they do, FleetPride says.

“Since opening our doors, Garden Spot Frame & Alignment has been dedicated to providing each and every customer with superior quality and unparalleled service. That commitment hasn’t changed over the years; it’s only grown stronger. For us, good is not enough. We strive to be the best,” says Simpson. “Partnering with FleetPride is the next step in taking our already outstanding services to the next level. We are very excited to be able to offer our customers a nationwide network of parts and service shops to keep them on the road no matter where they are in the country.”

“On behalf of our entire company, we are happy to welcome the Garden Spot Frame & Alignment team to FleetPride,” adds Mike Harris, FleetPride senior vice president of sales and operations. “Barry Simpson, Derek Snyder, Andrew McComsey and everyone at Garden Spot have done a fantastic job serving customers and building their reputation over the past 43 years. We look forward to continuing their tradition of customer service excellence, supporting their first-rate organization, and expanding the solutions, parts and services available to their customers through FleetPride’s experience and scale.”

All four Garden Spot locations will become FleetPride Service Centers, bringing the company’s total up to 59. Combined with FleetPride’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 company says.
