Chattanooga Truck Center Inc
Chattanooga Truck Center, Inc was brought into existence in August of 1997 by Jeff Swartout and Ken Terry. Jeff and Ken had previously been employed at a local truck dealership, but had the American dream of having their own full service small, medium and heavy duty truck service facility, doing quality service and repairs at reasonable rates.
They started on a one-acre lot and put up their six-bay shop. Of course, they knew it would be a struggle to get their service facility kicked off, but with hard work, they soon hired a mechanic and soon after hired several more mechanics. It was soon obvious that the six-bay shop was no longer enough to facilitate the number of vehicles that were coming in every day so another acre, six more bays and a parts department were added.
In March of 2000, Jeff and Ken looked into UD Trucks and were quite impressed with the vehicle quality and workmanship. Combined, Jeff and Ken have over thirty years experience in the service industry, so they knew they were on the right track. They felt that it was time to broaden their horizons and offer the transportation industry a dependable, quality built vehicle at a reasonable price. In July of 2000, UD Trucks awarded Chattanooga Truck Center the honor of carrying the UD Truck line.
