Ga. Exide Technologies has announced a new supply agreement with
Truck Pride Partners LLC. Exide has been designated as the preferred
vendor for the Truck Pride Partners battery line.
Partners LLC is one of the largest heavy duty parts distribution and
marketing organizations in North America. Truck Pride Partners LLC was
recently formed from the dissolution of the former program distribution
group Independent Warehouse Distributors LLC.
While Exide has had a
long-time supplier relationship with the original Truck Pride
organization, this new agreement marks the first time that Truck Pride
has selected a sole preferred battery line supplier. Exide will supply
a full aftermarket line, including automotive, heavy duty, marine, golf
cart, electric vehicle, lawn and garden and power sport products.
two-year agreement includes Exide- branded and Truck Pride private
label batteries sold in the U.S. and Canada. “This initiative in the
area of product management was a critical strategy, allowing the new
Truck Pride Partners to strengthen ongoing vendor relationships,” said
product committee chairman and member Bruce Greer.
