Our History

Samuel Eugene Smith and his two sons, Craig and Lance, always had a passion for fixing cars and trucks, and understanding the operations of how vehicles work. The trio started by fixing neighbors’ and friends’ vehicles out of their own home, and quickly grew by word of mouth—in the area, the Smith family mechanics became known for the quality of their work, great personalities, and loyalty to their customers. They became busy enough that it became necessary to open a real shop. In early 1962, Sam found the perfect facility in Glendora, CA, just off Arrow Highway, and S.E. Smith & Sons officially opened for business.

As a family business, our business history is our family history.

One day, after the shop had been up and running for a while, Craig and Lance had a vision—a vision of working on diesels, tractors, and trailers. After many years of planning and deliberating how truck repair would fit into their business and their lifestyles, they began to market for commercial and fleet vehicles. When they received their first big fleet account, there was no turning back. From that day forward, S.E. Smith & Sons became very well known for its top-notch truck repair work and trustworthy team. Sadly, Lance passed away in 1996, and Sam in 2008, but Craig continues to grow the family business with the help of his daughter, Nicole. At the much larger shop in Azusa, Craig and Nicole have big plans to carry forward the reputation and history of S.E. Smith & Sons.
