About Matthews MotorsOur Leadership Team
Bob Matthews started the company in 1991 after he left the construction & farming industries to pursue his entrepreneurial vision of starting a mobile, commercial-vehicle repair company that specialized in fleet management.
From these humble beginnings, and with over 40 years of fleet servicing experience, Bob has grown the company into a full-service fleet management company serving the entire Vehicle Life Cycle, from the minute a vehicle is purchased, to the day it is retired. This includes a full-service truck shop, trailer shop, automotive shop, fabrication shop, and a paint and body shop.
Bob built the Matthews Motors brand up by focusing on two core principles: to take care of people and to get the job done right.
Bob is the husband of Tanya. He enjoys spending time with his 3 grandkids and having fun operating equipment. He also enjoys working with different manufactures in helping innovate new products for truck & equipment industries.
