TruckEast has purchased Northampton-based trailer maintenance business ST Fleet Services for an undisclosed sum.
Matt Thomas, son of previous owner Steve Thomas, will continue to run the operation as general manager, and the company’s trading name will change to ST Fleet. The family-run company, established more than 30 years ago, specialises in trailer maintenance, and has an eight-bay workshop and fleet of six mobile service vans.
It also has an on-site vehicle wash, carries out trailer and truck inspections and repairs, MoT preparation and brake roller testing. ST has also offered operators extras such as local collection and delivery as well as emergency call out repairs.
Graham Broughton, TruckEast’s regional aftersales director – west said: “ST Fleet have a great reputation in the area supporting local fleet operators. “Their specialism in trailer repairs and servicing comes as a welcome addition into our business.
“Former customers and indeed employees of ST Fleet Services can rest assured of a seamless transfer of ownership that will leave them in the safest of hands.”
