Bosselman Boss Shops announced Monday, Aug. 31, that its network is growing with a 15-location acquisition of J Care Service Centers, a subsidiary of Flying J Travel Plazas. The management changeover begins today, Sept. 1, and will be completed by the end of the year.

“We’re working to broaden our footprint across the country in the truck repair business,” says Chuck Bosselman, president of Bosselman Inc., based in Grand Island, Neb. “This addition of more shops in our network will greatly benefit both existing and new customers. The trucking industry is constantly looking for repair facilities that they can trust to do their over-the-road work for them, and after 61 years in this industry, Boss Shops are targeting that need through quality service and competitive pricing.”

Bosselman says adding these 15 facilities to its operations brings a total of 25 Boss Shops in 18 states, making it one of the nation’s largest service center chains. As part of the Ambest and Pilot network, Boss Shop customers will gain additional value with coast-to-coast warranty coverage and industry-leading standards of service, according to the company.

Current Boss Shops locations include Grand Island, North Platte and Big Springs, Neb.; Rapid City and Sioux Falls, S.D.; Altoona, Iowa; Jamestown, N.M.; Tulsa, Okla.; Salina, Kan.; and Mortons Gap, Ky. New locations will include Benton Harbor, Mich.; Black River Falls, Wis.; Carlisle, Pa.; Dallas and West Houston/Brookshire, Texas; Ehrenburg, Ariz.; Fargo, N.D.; Lebec (Frazier Park), Calif.; Ft. Chiswell, Va.; Jerome (Twin Falls), Idaho; Ogden, Utah; and Gary, Indianapolis, Lake Station and Hebron (Lowell), Ind.

Services offered at Boss Shops include tires, quick lube oil changes and brake, electrical, drivetrain, air conditioning and other repairs, as well as roadside service. Boss Shops carry Bridgestone, Firestone, Michelin, BF Goodrich, Goodyear and DynaTrac tires, along with a Chrome Store with products to trick out a truck. Beginning in 2010, Boss Shops customers can enroll in the new Boss Shops Rewards program, a card-based program that rewards points based on purchases in any Boss Shop.
