FleetPride Inc., the nation's largest retailer of heavy-duty truck and trailer parts, has acquired the assets of Drake Supply Co.

Drake services Southern California with six locations, which bring the total number of FleetPride locations to 28 in the state.

Employment offers have been extended to all employees at the City of Industry, Commerce, Fontana, Long Beach, Ontario and Perris branches.

Drake Supply Co. was founded in 1948 in San Leandro, Calif. as the Glen C Drake Co. In 1990, Tye Plowman purchased the Drake Co., which is now known as Drake Supply Co. Plowman will stay on with FleetPride in a management role.

This acquisition expands FleetPride's reach into key markets of Southern California including rail yards, Port of Los Angeles, and the Inland Empire.
