May 21, 2008 - PRLog -- The History of Texas Chrome Shop
The story of Texas Chrome Shop starts almost 37 years ago when Raul Mendez wished that one day he would own his own truck, and start his own company. After many years of hard work Raul was just a few steps away of reaching his goal. He worked hard so he could purchase his very first 18 wheeler, turning his lifelong dream into a reality. This is the beginning of an awaited journey where Raul Mendez Sr. becomes the first employee of Mendez Trucking.

Many years passed before Raul could afford a second truck, and then third, and then a fourth, until we arrive to what Mendez Trucking is today. Mendez Trucking has grown by leaps and bounds over the years thanks to the dedication of one man and the family and friends that have believed in him. Today, Mendez Trucking is one of the largest independent contractors in all of Texas, and has become a family business with both sons, Roland and Raul Jr., working hand in hand with their father. The company employs dozens of hard working drivers and has more than 85 trucks in its fleet.

Under the Mendez flag many other truckers have the opportunity to work and save to purchase their own semi trucks to reach great heights. The amount of success stories off-shooting from this one company is staggering. To this day, Mendez Trucking continues to be the one place drivers know they can work for and be treat right.

In the year 2003, Mr. Mendez and his family built a service shop called Triple R Diesel where the Mendez philosophy can be extended now to all fellow truck drivers.  Triple R Diesel is a truck dealer that specializes in custom building dump trucks. Our main concern is customer satisfaction. We convert USED old (1990 to 1999 models) over the road tractors into dump trucks. In the past two years Triple R Diesel has built well over 300 dump trucks that have been delivered from Hawaii to New York. At Triple R Diesel, truck drivers can buy a semi truck without having to worry about any future problems. They won’t loose their business if any major failure occurs; especially if they invested all their money putting their truck into operation. That is how Texas Chrome Shop got started. Texas Chrome Shop is a shop where you can find parts and accessories at an affordable price. Now everyone is entitled to respect, honesty prices, the best work, and have a company with integrity service their tractors. The last several years have shown that the same principals that have made Mendez Trucking one of the greatest companies in Texas can also be applied with great success to our service center and parts shop located in Atascosa, Texas.

Our Primary goal is to help our dealers sell trucks. We put our trust in our dealers’ sales process of not knowingly selling a poor quality truck to retail buyer. We trust our dealers to perform through quality inspections of all our trucks. We will treat our warranty customers with courtesy, respect, and dignity. We will respond positively to breakdowns and claims with all required and necessary speed and accuracy. When warrantable claims occur we will endeavor to be the customer’s advocate in processing repairs and claim payments. Through our processes we want to assist our dealers in developing repeat and referral business. At Texas Chrome Shop you will achieve an acceptable return on your investment. Customer satisfaction is one of our main goals.

The story of Mendez Trucking and Texas Chrome Shop doesn’t end here or at any time soon. With your support and willingness to be treated right, Texas Chrome Shop will continue to provide you and your company with the best possible service and parts that you know you deserve. Raul Mendez, his company, and his family serve as a wonderful example of how with hard work, patience, persistence, and faith, anyone can make their dreams come true.

We wish everyone the best, and may God bless you as it has the Mendez Trucking family.
