From Tim Matt, owner of Triple-T, “I am pleased to have chosen Velocity Truck Centers to carry on the legacy of the Triple-T companies and Aftermarket Parts which began with my family in 1967. It was extremely important to me that Velocity committed to continue the stewardship of my senior management, employees and customers with the same care, ethics and attention as the Matt family has shown for the last 54 years. The transaction has gone exactly as discussed when we shook hands, and I wish Velocity the best of success with their next chapter in the Carolinas and throughout the global markets served by Aftermarket Parts.”
