Company History

We were founded on May 1st 1997 by Terry Epps. Terry started out repairing Airborne Express trucks and airport ground equipment in a one bay garage. That first year only having a one bay garage was a struggle for Terry so the next year he decided to move to a four bay garage down the road from the Chattanooga Airport. Through the second year there were some struggles but with God’s help and the help of Terry’s wife Jean the bills were getting paid.

In 2006 Terry decided to search for a partner that he could trust and could help him build the business bigger. After a lot of prayer, the person turned out to be sitting behind him in church, Jimmy Mosier and his wife Polly where the people they knew that they could trust with the business. Jimmy knew in his heart that this was something that he had always dreamed about so like Terry he took it to the Lord in prayer and then brought the decision before his family, with their blessing on April 16 2007 Jimmy became the other half of Truck and Ground Equipment Maintenance, LLC .

During that time Terry was approached by Ron Tucker who asked Terry to take over his company. Ron knew that he could trust Terry with his business and his customers. They then had two companies: Tires Unlimited and Truck And Ground Equipment Maintenance. After two years they decided that it would be more beneficial if they combined the two companies. In January 2009, they consolidated the two under one name Truck and Ground Equipment Maintenance, LLC and decided to keep the location at the Tires Unlimited site on Latta Street off of Amnicola Highway in Chattanooga TN, making them the first bucket truck repair facility in Chattanooga.

Terry and Jimmy’s backgrounds have helped with the success of the business. Terry’s ability to weld and build custom fabrications and Jimmy’s knowledge in the field of bucket truck repair and diesel mechanics have been indispensible. Both of these men pride themselves on the fact that they are family men and that Truck and Ground is a Family business. Terry and Jimmy both have some of the same loves in life God and his son, their wives and family, fishing, four wheeling, race cars, and camping and relaxing by the campfire.
