FleetPride, Inc. announced recently that it has acquired the assets of Commercial Truck Services (CTS) of Little Rock and Conway, Arkansas. CTS was founded by Joel and Lana Foster of White Hall, Arkansas, and Darryl and Jaci Birdsong of Conway. Joel and Darryl will remain onboard to support the integration of CTS into FleetPride and the day-to-day operations moving forward.
“Today’s announcement represents a great opportunity to expand our presence in the Little Rock market,” said Mike Harris, FleetPride senior VP of sales and operations. “CTS is well known in central Arkansas for fast, dependable truck and trailer repair, and they have a reputation for excellent customer service.”
“We are thrilled to join the FleetPride network,” said the Birdsongs and Fosters. “It was important for us to partner with a company that would allow us to expand into a robust parts business and provide ample opportunities for our employees.”
“Bringing together parts and service operations is an exciting opportunity,” added Harris. “In addition to merging our current Little Rock business into the CTS location, we will immediately begin construction on a new parts department in Conway. Bringing our two teams together creates great opportunities for employees while providing customers with a better overall experience in Little Rock and Conway.”
