Truck upfitter ProBilt Services of Ohio Inc. and its 30,000-square-foot facility near the Kenworth assembly plant in Chillicothe, has been acquired by Fontaine Modification. The ProBilt facility, which will become Fontaine's ninth U.S. modification center, will enable Fontaine to provide fleet in-servicing and vehicle modifications to Kenworth trucks. The facility also has parking for more than 100 trucks.
"We're proud of our Chillicothe team and the business relationships we have made there," ProBilt Principal Owner Toney Fitzgerald said. "While we are sad to leave Chillicothe, we trust Fontaine Modification will nurture and grow this business to its full potential. This move allows us to focus on our home operation in Denton, Texas."
- Fontaine operates two additional modification centers in Ohio, one in Springfield and another in Avon Lake. The company has three locations in North Carolina, two in Texas and one in West Virginia.
- Fontaine plans to retain ProBilt's Chillicothe team.
