Inland Truck Parts & Service is expanding its presence in Texas. The company on Tuesday announced its acquisition of Complete Gear Services, Inc., of San Antonio.
The new location becomes Inland’s sixth in the state of Texas, complementing stores in Irving, Fort Worth, Denton, Austin and Lubbock.
“This acquisition expands our footprint farther south in Texas and allows us to gain direct access to the busy I-10 corridor,” says Inland Truck Parts President and CEO Greg Klein. “It also allows us to add a location with more than 25 years of local experience and hands-on expertise.”
The new Inland store is located at 8957 I-10 East in Converse, Texas, where Complete Gear has served the area since 1992 with a solid parts and service business including specialization in the ready-mix industry. Inland is currently in the process of acquiring land to build a brand-new facility to expand the store’s capacity and capabilities, the company says.
“We’re excited to introduce Inland to San Antonio,” says Oscar Melendez, general manager. “The culture of employee ownership is great for taking care of customers. And Inland’s track record for investing in new facilities, tools and training will continue to make us even better at what we do.”
