Another Acquisition For Dickinson Fleet Services

Posted: Updated:

Indianapolis-based Dickinson Fleet Services is growing its footprint in south Florida. The company has acquired Fleet Technology & Maintenance Corp. and Truck City Body Co., both of which are based in the Miami area. Financial terms of the acquisition are not being disclosed.

Dickinson Fleet Services, which provides mobile truck maintenance and repair services throughout the country, says the acquisition makes it one of the largest truck repair and fleet management companies in south Florida and add to its growing national presence.

FTM provides truck repair and fleet management services through mobile on-site and shop services. Truck City Body Co. provides collision repair and paint services for heavy trucks, commercial buses and trailers. 

"Since entering this market eight years ago, we have recognized Fleet Technology & Maintenance Corporation as being an outstanding provider with a strong reputation for providing exceptional service," Ted Coltrain and Mike Dickinson, executive officers of DFS, said in a news release. "Truck City Body Company has a state-of-the-art facility with outstanding employees and complements the other commercial body shop facilities within Dickinson Fleet Services."

The deal for both companies is the sixth acquisition for DFS since the spring of 2017. Most recently, the company announced the acquisitions of Outsource Fleet Services Inc. in June and Michigan-based Fleet Enterprises Inc. in May.
