Recommended Posts

FleetPride announced that it has acquired the assets of Nationwide Truck Service of Louisville, Kentucky.

Founded in 1989 and owned by Eric Adkins, Nationwide Truck Service offers a wide range of repair services from its 21-bay facility and mobile repair units in addition to 24/7 roadside support.

The Service Center at 355 Farmington Ave. will team up with the existing FleetPride parts branch at 4670 Jennings Lane in Louisville, “creating a complete value proposition for customers,” according to FleetPride. Adkins and his son, Jake, will remain involved in the day-to-day operations.

“This is an outstanding opportunity for our valued customers and our team,” said Adkins. “Our customers will appreciate the access to a nationwide network of parts and service, and our employees will have the ability to grow and advance in FleetPride’s new service organization.”

“We are truly excited to welcome Eric and Jake Adkins and the entire Nationwide Truck Service team to the FleetPride family,” said Cory Anderson, general manager and vice president of service at FleetPride. “Over the past three decades, the Nationwide team has become one of the most trusted independent service providers, which customers have come to depend on, in Louisville.”

“Growth through acquisitions remains a focus for our company,” said Mike Harris, senior vice president of sales and operations at FleetPride. “We believe our value proposition resonates with owners of parts and service companies who are seeking a succession plan, or a partner that can provide a long-term foundation for their employees and customers. We look forward to the partnership with the Nationwide Truck Service team to carry on their tradition of service excellence while expanding service capabilities to our existing customers including large regional and national fleets.”

FleetPride continues to grow its national parts and service operations. If you are interested in learning more about how to become part of the FleetPride network, visit

Wow, that's truly incredible! I didn't even know about that. I know that some people might not agree with me on this one, but I think it's great for both FleetPride and Nationwide Truck Service of Louisville, Kentucky. It will help both of these companies evolve much more and finally reach a higher level.

He had a very old truck that was in a terrible state, but he didn't want to sell it. When he moved to the UK, he decided to take it with him, and I still don't know why. But still, my mom made him sell it as she found the guys from

and they were ready to pay a good price for that.

Now my wife is telling me the same thing about my own truck

      Dana Incorporated showcased its newly customized Jeep Gladiator at the recent Winter X Games Aspen 2022. 
      Featuring an Ultimate Dana 60 front axle and an Ultimate Dana 80 prototype rear axle, along with Spicer performance 1350 driveshafts, “this one-of-a-kind vehicle is destined to be the talk of off-road events across the country,” Dana said in a news release.
      “Our friends at Expedition Vehicle Outfitters did an incredible job building this custom off-road vehicle,” said Bill Nunnery, senior director, sales and marketing, global aftermarket for Dana.  “We are calling this adventure rig ‘The Ultimate Bug Out’ because it is loaded with premium-performing Dana and Spicer parts, along with other accessories to explore the wilderness for long durations of time. Having it on display will show off-road enthusiasts how Dana aftermarket performance parts enhance durability and performance, even in extremely rugged conditions.”
      A unique feature of the Dana-modified Jeep Gladiator truck is that some of the body components – including a majority of the vehicle’s bed – were built using the remnants of a 19th-century steel bridge that was located in Sydney, Ohio. 
      To further enhance overlanding excursions, a snowmobile track system from HellTraxx will provide deep-powder winter access when the vehicle is not traversing rugged trails in the summer.  Top-of-the-line upgrades such as lights, shocks and suspension are added features, and a water-filtration system, stove and tent are included for extended outdoor adventures.
      “We know ‘The Ultimate Bug Out’ will be a show-stopper at off-road events,” said Nunnery.  “We encourage all serious off-roaders and campers to stop by and check out this incredible vehicle and see how Dana can help them upgrade their own off-road vehicles.”

      NPW announced a continued expansion of its business with the acquisition of Jim’s Auto Parts.
      Owned by Jim Arpin and located in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, Jim’s Auto Parts has been in business since 1962 and is the last of the Broward Group of stores that is now under NPW management. The Broward Group was the largest independent group of auto parts stores in South Florida, NPW says.
      Jim’s Auto will continue to fly the Bumper to Bumper banner.
      “We are glad to have Jim’s Auto Parts under the NPW umbrella. Our family has known, been friends with and worked closely with Jim for many years. We look forward to working with all the great people Jim has brought along and grow the business he started,” says Chris Pacey, NPW’s COO and executive vice president.
      “After 60 years in business, you can imagine my concern with handing over my business,” says Jim Arpin. “I have worked with the Pacey’s and NPW for many years and I consider them a well-respected organization and like my company, is family owned and has family values. With their infrastructure and greater buying power, they will make sure that Jim’s Auto Parts will continue to be a part of and expectedly a bigger part of the auto parts business in South Florida.”

      Epicor announced it has acquired JMO Business Systems Ltd., a provider of warehouse management systems (WMS), enterprise mobility solutions and related services for automotive aftermarket and original-equipment (OE) parts distributors.
      Financial terms were not disclosed.
      “The JMO acquisition extends Epicor’s industry-leading portfolio of business-growth solutions to virtually every functional area of the automotive parts and service industry,” Epicor said in a news release.  
      Epicor offers an array of solutions and services for replacement parts manufacturers, program groups, distributors, retailers, jobbers, OE dealership groups and many types of vehicle repair businesses, including service chains, fleet maintenance shops, tire dealerships, oil-and-lube businesses and independent repair facilities.
      “Automotive is a core business for Epicor, and JMO indago is the gold standard in WMS technology for parts businesses, whether they’re serving the aftermarket or OE service channel,” Epicor CEO Steve Murphy said. “This acquisition is a perfect fit for our automotive solution set and for the customers who depend on Epicor to help drive growth, efficiency and profitability.”
      JMO indago WMS enhances users’ inventory management by increasing accuracy, reducing order cycle time, improving order fulfilment and providing real-time operational information through leading ERP systems, including the Epicor Vision, Epicor Eagle and Epicor Ultimate platforms, according to Epicor. The solution also helps reduce annual physical-inventory requirements through highly precise inventory control and real-time cycle counting.
      “We are thrilled to join a company that has the vision, commitment and resources to contribute to the long-term success of businesses at every level of the parts and service industry,” JMO CEO John Oliveira said. “JMO indago is a perfect complement to Epicor’s impressive automotive portfolio, and together we can provide even greater value to growth-focused parts distribution businesses.”
      Founded in 1988 as a software consultancy, JMO wrote its first WMS in 1996 as a custom project for a large automotive parts distributor. Based on the success of that product, the company developed indago WMS, which quickly became the predominant choice of aftermarket distributors throughout the U.S. and Canada.
