FleetPride announces acquisition of Utah operation

FleetPride has acquired Best Deal Spring & Truck Parts

FleetPride has acquired the assets of Best Deal Spring & Truck Parts, a third-generation family-owned business throughout Utah with locations in Salt Lake City, St. George, Price, Vernal and Payson.

Joining FleetPride will enabled the company to offer its customers more competitive pricing, increased services, and better parts availability, while it continues the trust and relationships it has maintained with industry customers for over five decades, says co-owners Mat Carter and Scott Smith.

Best Deal Spring & Truck Parts was founded by Vance Carter, and his sons, Lynn and Larry, in 1950 and has expanded to 79 employees, 31 vehicles, and 14 bays, enabling the service offering and the heavy-duty expertise of its employees to be unmatched in the marketplace. With service centers specializing in both leaf springs and suspensions, FleetPride broadens its service specialties in the region.

These service capabilities are bolstered by Best Deal Spring & Truck Parts' expansive, existing parts inventory which now connects nationwide to FleetPride's network, including its e-commerce solution, FleetPride says.

"We are thrilled to welcome Mat and Scott, and the entire Best Deal Spring team to FleetPride," says Mike Harris, FleetPride senior vice president of sales and operations. "The team has a 65-year history of excellence in customer service, and we look forward to continuing this legacy throughout Utah and the western U.S., further strengthening our parts supply distribution and growing service offering."

This is the eighth FleetPride acquisition this year, with continued expansion of their national parts and services operations, the company says.
