Polar Service Centers, one of the nation’s largest networks of commercial parts and repair facilities for tank trailers and tank trucks, has acquired C & R Fleet Services of Griffin, Ga., company officials announced.
Founded in 1997, C & R is housed in a seven-bay facility on nearly 10 acres located about 40 minutes south of the Atlanta’s airport. With ASE-certified technicians, C & R repairs and maintains all classes of trucks, trailers and cargo tanks, with a special focus on propane.
As a NITSA-registered final stage manufacturer, C & R builds trucks for a wide variety of custom applications, from service bodies to cranes or a complete propane bobtail, the company said in a press release. Under Polar Service Centers’ ownership, the facility’s capabilities will be expanded to include chemical, food-grade and petroleum tank trailers.
“This strategic acquisition gives us an opportunity to better serve customers in the southeast region,” said Jerry Cignarella, president of Polar Service Centers. “C & R offered us an exceptional foundation to build upon, a solid business that will allow us to expand our services to more truck and cargo tank operators.”
David Clark, vice president of parts for Polar Service Centers, added: “With the addition of C & R’s location, we have the capability to get critical, much-needed parts closer to our customers in the southeast region. We look forward to serving our customers in the Atlanta metro area and southern Georgia.”
