Matthews Motors acquired Venture Auto Sales, joining the two Augusta, Georgia-area businesses that offer truck and trailer service and sales, respectively. 

"Growth through acquisition is a relatively new strategy for Matthews, as this is our second acquisition this year. We are extremely careful to make sure any addition to our team is both a cultural and a strategic fit," says Aaron Matthews, CFO of Matthews Motors. "We have found this special fit with Venture." 

Matthews will keep all of Venture's employees to expand its pre-owned automotive division. 

"The trucking industry is facing unprecedented changes and we need to adapt to those changes," says Austin Matthews, CEO of Matthews Motors. "This acquisition is part of our company's strategy to position us for future grown and expansion throughout the southeast United States."
