Without exception, this company, which serves Texas and Oklahoma with a fleet of 18 vans, is seizing every day, and that’s why it's grown at a steady rate since its inception 12 years ago. With an impressive client roster consisting of large national companies with enormous fleets, Carpe Diem is focused on a sensible plan for nationwide expansion.


The company’s menu of services includes every type of full automotive reconditioning, consisting of upholstery and interior repairs, Paintless Dent Repair (PDR), bumper repairs, spot paint and glasswork.

“We recently hired Brian Baker, who is a fourth generation glassier who is currently running our glass department,” he said. “John Deleon is in charge of car interiors and Tristan DuBose does account management and runs our paint department.”
