HORSHAM, Penn., Feb. 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- AAMCO Transmissions, Inc. ("AAMCO"), franchisor of the world's largest branded chain of transmission specialists and an industry leader in total car care services, announced today it has expanded in Arkansas with the opening of its first location in Jacksonville. The new auto repair shop is located at 1106 West Main Street and features transmission, auto repair and fleet services. AAMCO Jacksonville marks the brand's fifth location in Arkansas and is owned and operated by Cabot resident and first-time franchisee Martin Schneider.
Prior to joining AAMCO, Schneider spent 20 years in the automotive industry, working for General Motors. He also has two decades of telecommunications experience. The franchisee plans to develop additional locations in the market over the next several years.
"I retired after 40 years in business, but quickly realized I was not ready for retirement life," said Schneider. "When I saw an opportunity to bring AAMCO's full service car care center to Jacksonville, I knew it was the right move. Everyone needs a trusted car care expert in their life, and my goal is to provide quality work and customer service to the community for many years to come."
For more than 50 years, AAMCO's network of locally owned and independently operated automotive service centers has employed the latest technology. Expert technicians diagnose a repair, fix it right the first time and back it with a nationwide warranty. Known as the world's leading transmission expert, the company has evolved into a total car care brand that provides a variety of services including brake repair, tune-ups, shocks and struts, routine maintenance and more. AAMCO was named to Entrepreneur's 2017 Franchise 500®, ranking at the top of the transmission repair category for the third consecutive year. Based on network size, growth rate and financial strength, last year, the brand also earned a spot on Entrepreneur's "Best of the Best" list.
