FleetPride, Inc. announced today that it has acquired the assets of Long Island Truck Parts, based in Medford, New York. Founded by Anthony Naples in 1972, the company is currently owned by Bobby Naples, Paul Naples, and Deborah Wilson with four locations on Long Island: Medford, New Hyde Park, Riverhead, and West Babylon.
“We have made and will continue to make many great acquisitions at FleetPride, but Long Island Truck Parts represents the best of what makes the heavy-duty aftermarket so exciting today,” said FleetPride CEO Al Dragone. “They are as relevant and successful today as they were when the company was started by Anthony Naples so many years ago. We are truly excited to have the chance to work alongside the entire LITP family over the coming years.”
“While the decision to sell is never an easy one, the chance to join a company like FleetPride is one we could not pass up,” added Bobby Naples. “Our customers will be well supported with FleetPride’s deep and diverse inventory, its distribution center in Connecticut, and locations throughout the Northeast. This move also provides our employees with new sales and career opportunities, both locally and across FleetPride’s nationwide network.” Naples will remain with FleetPride as an area manager to supervise the four former LITP locations in a newly-created territory.
