GB Auto Service Acquires Reliable Automotive, Expanding Its Presence In Texas

Addition Follows Acquisitions of Oklahoma-based Tate Boys and Sun Devil Auto and Sun Auto Service in Arizona


GB Auto Service, Inc., a portfolio company of Greenbriar Equity Group, L.P., today announced the latest expansion of its brand with the acquisition of Hays County, Texas-based Reliable Automotive.


Founded in 2012, Reliable Automotive operates stores in San Marcos, Buda and Kyle, Texas. Teammates from the Reliable stores will join the GB Auto family, which already serves the Austin market through 26 other locations.


“Reliable Automotive has established an outstanding reputation for exceptional vehicle servicing coupled with an uncompromised customer experience,” said GB Auto Service CEO Frank Kneller. “This brand is an ideal strategic fit for us and helps extend our presence in the broader Austin area.”


Reliable Automotive Founder Brad Hullum commented, “Joining the GB Auto Service family provides us with an opportunity to become part of an organization with an extraordinary industry reputation. Under GB Auto’s leadership, the Reliable Automotive brand will continue to provide the same level of service our customers have come to expect and be poised for limitless growth.”


The addition of Reliable Automotive marks the latest expansion of the GB Auto brand, following the acquisitions of Oklahoma-based Tate Boys Tire & Service in October and Phoenix-based Sun Devil Auto and Sun Auto Service in August. The acquisition also broadens the footprint of the company, which owns brands in California, Arizona, Nevada, Texas and Oklahoma.
