Meritor has announced that Dickinson Fleet Services of Indianapolis is the first repair service partner approved for its Meritor Service Point Program.

The Meritor Service Point program is a network of Meritor-approved service partners for fleets and owner-operators. Members of the network carry Meritor parts installed by technicians trained with Meritor’s expertise. The program is offered to those deemed by Meritor to be top-performing facilities.

“Dickinson Fleet Services is a recognized service leader in the industry, and we are pleased to appoint them as our first Meritor Service Point partner,” said Steve Edie, product manager, aftermarket for Meritor. “We see this partnership as a benefit to both companies and look forward to strengthening our brands in the marketplace as a result of this alliance.”

As an approved partner, Dickinson will have access to all of Meritor’s brands through approved distribution partners. Dickinson will also benefit from Meritor’s training programs, support programs, and marketing and promotional programs.

Dickinson Fleet Services is a large independent fleet maintenance and management company headquartered in Indianapolis, Ind. It offers on-site mobile maintenance and repair services for light-, medium- and heavy-duty trucks and trailers across the country.

Meritor says it is in discussions with more program candidates and plans to announce the next approved partner in early 2016.

“We look forward to growing the program and helping more repair facilities reinforce their commitment to quality with fleet customers,” said Ron Lacombe, senior manager, business development for Meritor.
