TruckPro Acquires Carolina Rim and Wheel Co.
December 17, 2012
TruckPro LLC has completed the purchase of Carolina Rim and Wheel Co. The acquisition includes the five CRW store operations across the Carolinas and Georgia.
Charlotte, N.C.-based CRW, founded in 1926, is an independent distributor of heavy duty truck and trailer products. The acquisition gives TruckPro a strong foothold in the Carolina and Georgia markets. The addition of CRW to the TruckPro family brings the number of store operations across the United States to 65.
CRW will continue to operate as it has in the past with substantially all of CRW's associates.
In addition, CRW's President, Tom Stewart, will assume an executive role with TruckPro.
The acquisition provides service enhancements for CRW customers - including access to broader product lines, additional inventory and a more robust distribution network.
