Fleming Leasing Merges with Aim NationaLease

GIRARD, Ohio – Aim NationaLease, a national provider of commercial truck leasing and contract maintenance services, announced Thursday it has merged with Fleming Leasing. The merger took effect Nov. 1, the company said.

The merger provides Aim with three locations in the Washington, D.C. market. The Fleming locations in Manassas and Springfield, Va. and Landover, Md. will start operating with the Aim name and branding in January.

Fleming serves more than 50 customers, with more than 400 vehicles under contract. With its addition, Aim will have more than 10,000 vehicles under contract.

Said Geoff Fleming, Aim business development management, in a statement accompanying the merger announcement, “The two leasing companies have worked closely together over the last decade on a range of activities, including buying equipment and sharing best practices. This will be a new region for Aim and a great opportunity to expand our footprint in a growing market.”

Fleming NationaLease  has operated in the industry for 12 years under the leadership of Dan Fleming and Kevin Fleming, nephews of Aim’s president, Tom Fleming.

“Dan and Kevin Fleming will join my sons Scott and Geoffrey Fleming in our combined family business,” said Tom Fleming in Aim’s November newsletter. “Our shared history goes back to my grandfather, J.V. McNicholas, who started in transportation with a horse and buggy over 100 years ago.”

Aim was founded in 1962 as an affiliate of McNicholas Transportation Co. It became a stand-alone company in 1982 and has since grown to become the largest privately owned truck-leasing company in North America.
