Truck, Ag and Auto has changed its name to Texas Trucks Direct. The company says the rebranding brings it back to its roots of the trucking industry.
In 1982, a two-man service operation began in Stephenville, Texas, to fill the need for truck repair in the local market area. By 1988, the business expanded into heavy-duty parts distribution with a 2,400 square-foot-parts room.
The name Truck, Ag and Auto reflected the needs of the community as a parts and service center not only for trucks, but also for the agricultural and automotive applications. The business continued to grow and so did the facility. In 2006, the company expanded into a 6,400-square-foot parts warehouse and a 6,000-square-foot service shop.
As the Texas economy has evolved, so too has the business, which has caused the company to go back to its roots: trucks. On May 1, it has officially become Texas Trucks Direct.
“We love Texas, we love Trucks and we are your direct source for all of your parts and service needs. We decided to change our name to better reflect our focus. We know trucks inside and out; it is truly our specialty and passion. Our business continues to flourish and for that we are grateful to our customers and all of our employees, both present and past,” said Jerry Cozby, owner of Texas Trucks Direct.
“Texas Trucks Direct is a proud member of HDA Truck Pride and we are proud of them for this bold change. We are excited to be a part of their growth and their dedication and focus on their customers and also their employees,” said Tom Tecklenburg, chief commercial officer of HDA Truck Pride.
