FleetPride, Inc., Irving, Texas, acquired the assets of Commercial Truck Services (CTS) of Little Rock and Conway, Ark. Co-founders Joel Foster and Darryl Foster will remain onboard.

"Today's announcement represents a great opportunity to expand our presence in the Little Rock market," says Mike Harris, senior vice president of sales and operations for FleetPride. "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," adds the 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," adds 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."
