About Us

Motor Rite, Inc. is a family owned business that was founded in 2002 by David Brooks and his father, Paul Brooks.  David and Paul are North Carolina natives and Army veterans.  Both owners have a vast history of mechanical experiences with over 65 years of combined experience.

David Brooks is from Winston-Salem, NC and started working on cars and trucks at the age of 13 with his father.  His first job was as a detail technician at a local car dealership.  While there, he was promoted to Body Shop Assistant Manager.  Shorly thereafter, he joined the United States Army and was stationed in Oklahoma.  While there, he received training from the Army on diesel mechanics while working on large military vehicles.  Once discharged from the Army, he worked at a large bus company and was in charge of all the repairs on diesel buses and vans.  He worked at various places in the Triangle performing diesel and gas repairs as well as body work and automotive/truck/bus painting. 

Paul Brooks is from Elkin, NC. He started working with diesel engines when he got his degree from Forsyth Technical Community College in Diesel Mechanics in 1967.  His diesel mechanics training continued on when he joined the United States Army.  He worked with heavy machinery and pilot freight carriers.  In 1971, he became HHC Motor Sergeant and held that position through 1990.   He worked in the recruiting office for three years before returning back to mechanics when he took over as Senior Brigade Maintenance Supervisor with responsibilities including maintenance for equipment in five states.  He retired from the Army in 2001 and started Motor Rite, Inc the following year. 

In 2002, David and Paul decided to start Motor Rite, Inc.  The company started very small with one truck and was 100% mobile.  Over the years, they moved to a 3500 sq. foot facility and had to move again in 2008 to a 10,000 sq. foot facility where they still are today.
