“Friction Materials has a long history in this market and we are looking forward to bringing their customers into the fold. We feel confident that they will continue to receive the level of service to which they have become accustomed – and now they will also have access to an expanded product inventory,” explains Steve Turnlund, regional vice president – West for FleetPride. 

Turnlund continues, “Eugene, Oregon is an important market for FleetPride. By expanding our current Eugene operations into a larger facility, we will be able to better serve our local, regional, and national accounts.”
