FleetPride Acquires Zender’s Truck & Equipment


Recommended Posts

FleetPride has acquired the assets of Zender’s Truck & Equipment, Parts & Service Inc., based in Bellingham, Washington.

Zender’s has been providing parts and service to the heavy-duty trucking industry for more than 20 years. This acquisition is part of FleetPride’s strategy to continue expanding its presence in the heavy-duty aftermarket.

“We’re delighted to welcome Bruce and the entire Zender’s team to the FleetPride family, with their wide-ranging expertise, outstanding service, and loyal customers,” said Mike Harris, FleetPride president of parts and service. “Zender’s Truck & Equipment has a strong culture, which is reflected in their talent and robust customer following that fits very well with our vision and values. We look forward to supporting the Zender’s team.”

Bruce Zender, owner of Zender’s Truck & Equipment, Parts & Service, added, “Joining FleetPride is a tremendous opportunity for our team and customers. This move will help us to continue to provide superior customer service and support for our customers.”

This acquisition gives customers in northwest Washington access to FleetPride’s advanced supply chain and provides future employees with career development opportunities, including FleetPride Tech University. In addition, it marks the company’s first service location on the West Coast.

“Establishing a comprehensive parts and service national footprint maximizes our ability to support customers with technical expertise in local markets we serve,” added Harris. “It also enables large regional and national fleets to leverage our scale for greater uptime, and lets them access our broad assortment of products, and e-commerce solutions on FleetPride.com.”

      I cannot find a remanufactured brake booster for my 1978 Dodge D-150 truck with 400 c.i.d. engine to save my life!  Yes, I can send mine out for rebuilding and hope that it comes back correctly repaired (or comes back at all), but I don't want to take my truck completely out of service while I wait for it to (hopefully) be correctly rebuilt.  I would, however, gladly settle for a "loose" rebuildable core.  

      If anyone reading this has a rebuildable core that they will sell to me, I would be quite grateful.

      link hidden, please login to view community recently united in Grapevine, TX, for its Annual Meeting to celebrate a successful year, marked by substantial member expansion and engagement with the addition of over 130 new locations across North America. It also served as a platform for collaboration and fostering positive change for the rest of the year ahead, according to HDA Truck Pride. link hidden, please login to view The week commenced with a charitable “Toss Up For Love and Hope” Cornhole Tournament to raise funds for Kids Matter International, an organization committed to empowering children in the Grapevine area by providing essential items like clothing, shoes, books, and backpacks, along with educational initiatives, fostering hope for a brighter tomorrow.
      Tina Hubbard, president & CEO of HDA Truck Pride, set the tone for the meeting with an inspiring anecdote, “The Story of the Baby Elephant and the Rope.” The narrative illustrates how past experiences or perceived limitations can sometimes hinder progress, emphasizing the importance of breaking free from self-imposed constraints to achieve greater success, Hubbard emphasized.
      “Together, we can ‘Be The Change’ needed to help each other break the ropes that are holding us back. And that is why HDA Truck Pride is committed to transforming the commercial vehicle aftermarket into a community that inspires people and businesses to realize their full potential,” Hubbard said.
      HDA Truck Pride said it “remains at the forefront, launching new resources and programs that not only bolster the network’s competitiveness and expansion within the market but also enhance accessibility and prominence among national fleets. Additionally, this plays a pivotal role in the recruitment and retention of talent across all facets of the business.”
      As the week progressed, enthusiasm for the “Be The Change” mantra prompted action and collaboration between members and suppliers throughout engagement sessions that “delved into critical issues vital to our industry fostering valuable exchange on challenges such as supply chain disruptions, regulatory shifts, the evolving dynamics of talent acquisition and retention, the expansion of online sales channels and effective strategies for digital commerce,” HDA Truck Pride said.
      “With the generous backing of HDA Truck Pride supplier partners, notably platinum supporters – Grote, Bendix, and DriV – alongside the unwavering commitment of the entire HDA Truck Pride member network and industry attendees,” HDA Truck Pride said they rallied together for several philanthropic opportunities over the course of the week. As a result, the HDA Truck Pride community raised $35,000 in support of Kids Matter International, protecting future generations to come.
      “2023 was a pivotal year for our community, full of new engagement opportunities and growth,” said Hubbard, “As we gaze ahead at the evolving landscape of the trucking industry and its challenges, the HDA Truck Pride network stands poised, ready to ‘Be The Change.’ What barriers will we break next?!”

      During HDA Truck Pride’s recent Annual Meeting, attendees raised $35,000 for Kids Matter International.
      link hidden, please login to view Kicking off its 2024 Annual Meeting, HDA Truck Pride hosted a Cornhole Tournament & Welcome Dinner, where teams competed in a friendly yet spirited competition, with all proceeds being donated to Kids Matter International. Throughout the week there were additional opportunities for attendees to contribute to the charity partner and make an impact.  
      “We are honored to partner with Kids Matter International and incredibly proud of our network for their passionate efforts in being able to raise $35,000 for kids in need. The Kids Matter commitment to the Grapevine community deeply resonates with the values we hold within our HDA Truck Pride network. We’re all about communities coming together to help each other and protect future generations. What better way to do that than through some friendly competition?” said HDA Truck Pride President & CEO, Tina Hubbard.
      Founded in 2006, Kids Matter International has been instrumental in providing essential resources and educational opportunities to children in need in the Grapevine, Texas, area. From providing new clothing, shoes, books, and backpacks, to offering educational programs, Kids Matter International empowers children and instills hope for a brighter future, HDA Truck Pride explained.
      For a child who lives in poverty, wearing tattered, worn-out clothes and shoes can negatively impact their self-esteem and confidence. It can also negatively impact their ability to learn when not appropriately dressed for weather conditions. With a donation of $100, Kids Matter International provides up to $350 worth of new clothes and shoes to a child in need, the organization said.
      “This donation will enable us to provide clothing to an additional 350 kids in 2024, resulting in a total value of $122,500 in new merchandise,” expressed Marti Conner, president & CEO of Kids Matter International. “On behalf of the children we serve, we extend our heartfelt gratitude to HDA Truck Pride and the attendees for making a significant difference in the lives of these children.”
