FleetPride announced it has acquired the assets of Goose’s Diesel Truck Parts & Service of Pleasant Valley, New York.

Founded by Michael “Goose” Bucey in 1992, the company recently relocated to a larger facility and offers fleet maintenance, repair and parts for all makes and models of heavy-duty trucks and trailers. Bucey will remain on board to continue managing day-to-day operations.

“Today we welcome Mike Bucey and the employees of Goose’s Diesel Truck Parts & Service to the FleetPride organization,” said Mike Harris, FleetPride senior vice president of sales and branch operations. “This is another great acquisition, our third of the year, filling white space between our New Windsor, Danbury and Albany locations. It also comes on the heels of two new branches recently opened in Vancouver, Washington and Tampa, Florida. We are truly excited about the opportunity to work with Mike Bucey and team while expanding our presence in the New York market.”

With the acquisition, FleetPride now has 14 locations in the state of New York, all served with daily replenishment from the company’s nearby distribution center in North Haven, Connecticut.

“Since our beginning in 1992, Goose’s Diesel has provided exceptional quality in both service and parts in the heavy duty industry,” said Bucey. “We are thrilled that we can partner with FleetPride to begin the next chapter in our journey. Our customers can expect the same level of service and professionalism that they have come to know us for moving forward.”
