In 1998, Texstar Ford put down roots in Stephenville, Texas (also known as the “Cowboy Capital of the World”). They haven’t looked back.
I’ve not met someone from Stephenville, that doesn’t know where Texstar Ford is located. They support their community, and their community loves them. For the past 18 years they have sponsored Texstar Ford Summer Nights Concert Series, a free event that boasts well-known and talented artists like Roger Creager, Scotty Kirby, Casey Donahew, Michael Martin Murphy, Larry Joe Taylor and Tejas Brothers, Ricky Skaggs, and Moe Bandy.
We regretfully didn’t get to go to any of the concerts, but we did spend some hot summer days putting in three new security gates and getting to know the General Manager, Tom Davison. The gates included:
Two sets of dual Viking F-1 Swing Gate Operators.
And, one H-10 Slide Gate Operator.
We have taken care of the Doug Montgomery’s personal gates for about three years now. That is how we got our foot in the door to do Texstar’s gates.
Davison said that they were worried about theft and vandalism in their current location, so he wanted to add security that would better control access to the dealership. That is when he came to us.
When I asked him about why he selected our company, he said, “There are various gate companies to choose from, but I wanted one that had experience, good references and great service, and yet affordable!”
Over the course of the install, we enjoyed learning that Davison joined Ford 43 years ago. He said it was because he loves the people and the fast pace of vehicle business. He currently drives a Ford F150, but he says his favorite Ford that is no longer made is the Excursion. He loved being able to fit a lot of people in it, while it still got great milelage.
Davison also mentioned that “when you are looking for a custom gat or new electric gate operator, you should do all your research, shop, and compare. You will end sign up with Aberdeen Gate.”
We are proud to call the folks at Texstar Ford our clients and FRIENDS.
