FleetPride Inc. announces the opening of a new location in White City, Ore., just north of Medford. The new branch, located at 1290 Antelope Road, opened Feb. 20. It is FleetPride's sixth location in Oregon, joining branches in Klamath Falls, Eugene, Salem, Tualatin and Portland.
“Entering the Medford market represents a great opportunity for FleetPride,” said Mike Harris, FleetPride senior vice president of sales and branch operations. “Our new team members represent many years of industry knowledge to help customers stay on the road. Customers in Medford and surrounding areas will now have access to the best selection of truck and trailer parts from industry-leading brands they know and trust.
“Adding 'greenfield' locations like Medford is a key part of our strategy moving forward. Over the last six months, we've opened greenfield locations in New Orleans, Houston, Mount Crawford, Va., and Boise, Idaho. Now we're open for business in Medford. Opening new locations complements our aggressive acquisition plans, which are well underway for a strong 2018.”
An official grand opening ceremony will be scheduled for this spring.
