Indianapolis-based Dickinson Fleet Services is acquiring Interstate Truck Center in Missouri. Dickinson says the union will leverage the mobile expertise and capabilities of both companies and solidify the combined business as the largest mobile maintenance provider in North America.
The company did not disclose financial terms of the deal. Interstate is expected to continue to operate under its current management team and will be supported by the DFS platform.
“ITC has built a strong reputation for providing exceptional and timely emergency mobile repair services nationwide,” said Ted Coltrain, executive officer at DFS. “This strong track record will serve as a solid base to accelerate future growth for both DFS and ITC by expanding our market presence and service offering for new and existing customers.”
DFS says the combined entity has mobile power, mobile trailer, and mobile emergency service capabilities and a combined fleet of more than 700 mobile repair units.
“Partnering with Dickinson provides us with a unique opportunity to more effectively deliver on our promise to customers of always having knowledgeable, professional technicians available to keep our customers’ fleets moving,” said Scott Higgs, president of Interstate Truck Center. “Together, we will deliver industry-changing commitments to reduce downtime for our customers. The partnership of ITC and DFS is a natural fit and will create tremendous growth opportunities for all involved.”
Additionally, DFS says mobile offerings will continue to drive value for North American fleets by reducing downtime and inefficiencies in the repair cycle. ITC is Dickinson’s 10th acquisition since 2017.
