Who we are

Bill Wells, Founder

Mr. Bill Wells was working with Pioneer Motor company in 1954 right here in Nacogdoches, TX. When the company decided to move in 1967, Bill opened Wells Automotive Service.  Mr. Wells learned at an early age the value of a hard day’s work and what it meant to be honest and have integrity.  The lessons he learned at a young age carried over with him when he began Wells Automotive Service. Those lessons have been lovingly passed on to his son, his grandson and other employees at Wells Automotive.  Mr. Wells is retired now, but wanted to stay near the business he loves so dearly. He can be found on most weekends in Nacogdoches where he raised his family.
