M&D acquires Turbo Diesel & Electric, adding six branch locations

M&D acquires Turbo Diesel

M&D has acquired of Turbo Diesel & Electrical Systems. Turbo Diesel & Electric has represented the aftermarket for a half-century with fuel system and turbo remanufacturing and distribution services.

The acquisition extends M&D’s footprint to 23 branches, marking their first locations in Georgia, Florida, Alabama, and South Carolina.

M&D CEO Grant Garrett realizes tremendous opportunities for retail expansion and increasing remanufacturing capabilities.

"Turbo Diesel and Electric is the right match for M&D due to their 51-year history of exceptional customer service and great team members. This partnership aligns strongly with M&D’s 80-year history and allows us to expand into the Southeastern market to better serve our customers. We are looking forward to our continued partnership and growth with Al, James, Cheryl, and TDE team members,” he says.

Founded in 1972 by James Roberts Sr., Turbo Diesel has been a family-run business for two generations. Roberts Sr. passed down the business to his children, Al Roberts, James Roberts Jr., and Cheryl Leipold. A third generation, James “Lewis” Roberts III and Jeremiah Leipold also grew professionally within the company. The family grew the business from one location to six locations. The entire family looks forward to joining the M&D family.

“The historical relationship with M&D, and the synergies between our two companies, will give us the ability to bring more products and services to our customers,” James Roberts Jr. says. “We’ll be able to offer more parts, including a wider selection of cylinder heads, filtration, and internal engine parts.”

Al Roberts adds, “This will allow us to focus more on our customers and provide them the best opportunities within the industry.”

Opportunities for the growing organization are plentiful. M&D gains new territory coverage and six branch locations. Turbo Diesel also operates a highly renowned service dealer (SD) network in one of the hottest markets in the United States, the companies say.

Turbo Diesel’s customers will have access to new products for high-horsepower, marine, and industrial off-road applications. They can continue expecting top-notch quality since the organizations share many premium partnerships, including Bosch, Stanadyne, Denso, Garrett, BorgWarner, Holset, Cummins, and many more.

“M&D will continue to partner with great companies in the diesel engine aftermarket as we continue our national expansion and branch footprint through acquisition,” Garrett says. “Considering M&D is one of few companies acquiring businesses that offer employee profit sharing plans, we are committed to being a first-choice employer and 'Win Together' with all team members. We’re excited to offer the profit-sharing benefit to all Turbo Diesel & Electric team members.”
