L&L Distributors' continual efforts and commitment over the past 37 years has positioned it to be the desired heavy-duty aftermarket parts and services provider in South Florida. Now, as a part of FleetPride, L&L Distributors' customers will benefit from the expansive purchasing power of FleetPride and gain access to the industry's most comprehensive selection of heavy-duty aftermarket inventory, the company says.

Customers will continue their ongoing relationship with the same parts experts they have entrusted their heavy-duty needs with over the last 37 years. Thus, continuing L&L Distributors' legacy of being the number one preferred place for all their customer's heavy-duty needs, says FleetPride.

"We look forward to working with Raymond and the entire L&L Distributors team in their continued support of the local communities of South Florida. Combining FleetPride's rapid expansion and other digitally oriented solutions with our shared passion and commitment to being number one in customer service, we are sure this will be a great fit," adds Mike Harris, FleetPride senior vice president of sales and operations. "We are excited to be adding three additional locations to our Florida footprint." 

The 48 employees of L&L Distributors, with an average tenure of nine years, now have additional growth opportunities under the FleetPride name, the company adds.
