FleetPride, one of the nation’s largest independent distributors of aftermarket heavy-duty truck and trailer parts, recently held a grand opening event at its new branch in New Orleans. The branch is FleetPride’s third location in Louisiana, and is one of 64 locations in its southeastern U.S. network.
“We’re happy to be serving the New Orleans market as we continue expanding our footprint to reach more customers,” said Mike Harris, FleetPride senior vice president of sales and branch operations. “The team members here have over 50 years of combined experience in the heavy-duty parts industry, and they are committed to serving our customers’ needs with the broadest assortment of aftermarket products in the trucking industry.”
A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held Sept. 14 to officially open the branch. The ceremony was attended by approximately 100 customers who visited the new branch during the grand opening, where they interacted with representatives from FleetPride’s supplier partners. An ATV also was given away to one lucky customer in attendance.
