THE WOODLANDS, Texas, March 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- FleetPride, Inc., the nation's largest independent aftermarket distributor of heavy-duty truck and trailer parts, announced Wednesday that it has opened a new 8,000-square-foot location in Ogden, Utah. The Ogden branch is located in Weber County at 3200 S. Bouwhuis Drive, Suite 1, West Haven, Utah, which is 40 miles north of Salt Lake City at the foot of the Wasatch Mountains.
The new Ogden facility will be led by industry veteran Kent Jones, Branch Manager, and his team who bring a combined 87 years of experience in heavy-duty truck and trailer parts. With this facility, FleetPride will now have four locations in Utah. This new branch will expand the company's service area to the North Valley which includes Tremonton, Logan, Hyrum and Brigham City.
"With the opening of the Ogden branch, FleetPride is better positioned to serve local and national customers all across Utah. The Ogden/West Haven area has a strong agriculture base connecting these producers in Utah with the thriving dairy industry in Twin Falls, Idaho. Additionally the potash mining industry is thriving along the border of Idaho and Utah. These industries rely on heavy-duty trucks and trailers to conduct business, making this a prime location for a FleetPride expansion," explained Lee Stockseth, FleetPride's Chief Operating Officer.
"Ogden/West Haven exemplifies how our Greenfield and acquisition strategies go hand-in-hand. Ogden/West Haven complements our recent expansions in Idaho Falls, Twin Falls and Pocatello, Idaho, as well as Vernal and St. George, Utah, giving us the desired geographic presence to best serve existing and new customers in the region," said W.M. McGee, President and CEO.
