FleetPride, Inc. announced it has acquired the assets of Murray’s Diesel Repair of Shreveport, Louisiana. Founded in 2016 by Travis and Stephanie Murray, Murray’s Diesel Repair provides a full line of services to drivers and fleets throughout the Ark-La-Tex region. Separately, the Murrays will continue to operate Murray’s Auto Repair in Shreveport, La., which focuses on the repair of light-duty vehicles, FleetPride says.
“This is a momentous acquisition for FleetPride,” said FleetPride CEO Mike Duffy. “Not only are we excited to welcome the entire Murray’s Diesel Repair team to our company, but this acquisition also pushes FleetPride to over 300 locations across the country. It is fitting that a strong, talented, and dedicated team like the one at Murray’s Diesel Repair is the one that helped us get there.”
“We’re very proud of this entire team for everything they have done to build a thriving heavy duty repair business,” said Travis Murray. “With the backing of FleetPride’s nationwide support network and commitment to developing talent, we know they will be in good hands now and in the future.”
“To grow a nationwide heavy-duty parts and service network like ours, it takes a committed team that is passionate about serving customers,” said Mike Harris, senior vice president of sales and operations. “I want to personally thank our FleetPride team members for all their hard work and determination as we pass the 300+ location milestone. In addition to great acquisitions, I’m proud of our teams for executing on our strategic initiatives that pave the way for long-term growth as we evolve from a parts distributor to a technology-focused, full-scale solutions provider.”
