Georgia service center acquired by FleetPride

FleetPride has acquired the assets of MTR Fleet Services of Cumming, Ga.

Following his service as a diesel mechanic in the U.S. Army, Jason Martin founded Martin's Truck Repair in 2003. Martin changed the company's name to MTR Fleet Services upon moving to their current 12,000 sq.-ft., facility in 2008. The MTR team supports customers throughout metro Atlanta and northern Georgia with outstanding service, including heavy-duty repairs, body work, and on-site maintenance services.

"Our company is committed to the principle of operational readiness. That means investing in our customers, investing in our capabilities, and investing in our team," says Martin. "With FleetPride, we are teaming up to join a company that shares our philosophy. We're excited to become a part of their new nationwide service organization."

"It is a pleasure to welcome the MTR Fleet Services team to FleetPride," says Cory Anderson, FleetPride general manager and vice president of service. "Jason Martin has developed a first-class team that is focused on total customer satisfaction. We look forward to expanding the solutions offered to their customers, with several parts locations in the Atlanta market, including our regional Distribution Center for added support."

Recently, FleetPride launched a dedicated service business unit to manage the growing footprint of company-owned service centers, now encompassing more than 60 locations, the company says.

"Today we take another important step in our commitment to deliver solutions to our customers in the heavy duty aftermarket," says Mike Harris, FleetPride senior vice president of sales and operations. "I am very proud of what we are building here at FleetPride. Over the last 18 months, we've upgraded our supply chain, introduced as the first click in heavy-duty, and we have continued to partner with great businesses like MTR Fleet Services. All of this is possible because we have great people. Our team members are truly amazing – they work hard every day to help our customers be successful. We're excited to welcome Jason Martin and his team to the family."
