POCO, which is an abbreviation for Powell Company, was established in 1971.

How We Got Here!

In 1971, Robert Powell bought a 4 bay shop with a gravel parking lot at 2205 East Main Street in Gatesville from Quinton Barnett, his former boss. This became the reality of his dream. He named the business Poco Automotive. During the next 12 years he added two more bays and an office and waiting area for customers. He also added a paved parking lot. The business grew, not because of the new bays and waiting room or paved parking lot, but because of the honesty and integrity in which Robert Powell operated his business. We like to call it customer service nowadays, but back then Robert was just taking care of people and their cars.  

In 1984, Kyle Powell bought Poco Automotive from Robert. He kept the same business habits as his father. Customer service, Quality control, and Pay the bills! He never really worked at being successful as much as just carrying on the family tradition of taking care of people and their cars. We now have 11 bays and are continuing to try and emulate the business practices of Robert Powell.

On October 19th, 2016 Kyle sold the business to Bobby and Melissa Jenkins and moved to his new home of Houston Texas to be closer to his wife Kelly, and to pursue a new business opportunity. I worked along side Kyle for 11 years, and my wife, with us, for five of those years. In that time I learned a lot about the business and why is has been so successful over the years. Robert had a plan "take care of people and their cars". Sounds simple enough. So today at Poco Automotive you will find us too, taking care of people and their cars.

Melissa and I would like to welcome each of you to Poco Automotive. If you have a great visit, then you have my permission to tell everyone you see! If you do not have a great visit, Please let me know. call me at (254)865-2139 or email me at [email protected] . Accountability begets Integrity.
