Family Automotive Company to Change Name
Fleetcare Commercial Trucks of Augusta is changing its company name to Matthews Motors, a nod to the family’s legacy in the automotive business.
The company was founded in 1991 by Bob Matthews as a mobile, commercial-vehicle repair service that specialized in preventative maintenance. Matthews’ sons Aaron and Austin now run the business with him.
Austin Matthews said the rebranding will officially happen in 2018.
The family-owned business will be expanding its services beyond medium and heavy-duty fleet vehicles. Matthews Motors will include an automotive division as well.
“For all your transportation needs, now we are truly a one-stop shop,” Matthews said.
The Fleetcare name will retain its own identity within the new Matthews Motors company as a premium maintenance plan under the service department.
The company plans to move to a new location at 1357 Gordon Hwy in January.
