May 3, 2022 (Greenville, S.C.) -- Velocity Truck Centers (VTC) has announced that the company has further expanded into the Southeast United States with the acquisition of Christopher Trucks, a Greenville-based, family-run company in business for 71 years. The acquisition of Christopher Trucks brings the fast-growing Greenville and Spartanburg areas of South Carolina into the VTC network. With the nine locations in North Carolina and the two locations in South Carolina, the addition of Christopher Trucks’ additional two locations establish VTC as the most comprehensive network in the Carolinas with more locations than any other dealer network.
Co-Presidents of VTC, Brad Fauvre and Conan Barker said, “We are pleased to add Christopher Trucks to what is now the most comprehensive sales, service and support network in North and South Carolina. It has been a pleasure to work with owner Scott Christopher through this process. And we are very pleased to welcome fourth generation leader Stuart Christopher into Velocity as a branch manager. The continuity of Christopher leadership will ensure the highest possible service and quality the community has come to depend on from Christopher Trucks.”
Christopher Trucks owner Scott Christopher added, “In 1951 my grandfather, McAdams Christopher founded Christopher Trucks with focus on outstanding service. I had the privilege to work with my father McAdams Christopher Jr. until his retirement in 1993 when I acquired the dealership. The success of Christopher Trucks has been built by the long-term dedication of our ownership and our employees to the highest level of service for our customers. Many of our team members have tenure of over 25 years. I’m pleased that the legacy of service that began over 70 years ago will continue into a great future with VTC. Our South Carolina customers will continue to enjoy outstanding products and services provided by our valuable employees as part of the VTC network.”
The acquisition was finalized on April 29, 2022, and Christopher Trucks and its employees will maintain operations in the region under the Velocity Truck Centers name.
