Lenoir City, TN (November 21, 2011)… It has recently come to light among the diesel performance market that customer service & product reliability issues have been a hot topic regarding Cobb’s Diesel Performance. “People often love to jump in on the forums and sling mud, and I guess I’m not immune, so I would like to clear the air on a few things”, stated owner John Cobb. “I hired Matt Henderson last October as General Manger, because I take my company very seriously, and knew Matt’s strengths and proven track record were what the company needed. His years of experience in a management role with Cherry Bomb where he substantially increased productivity, customer service and quality control were exactly what was needed to help the growth of Cobb’s Diesel.”
A salesman and technician were terminated right away, and the company began to experience steady growth and increased customer service under his leadership. While helping guide the direction of Cobb’s Diesel Performance, Matt also formed his own company, Performance Machine & Manufacturing, which has exploded onto the scene of the diesel market in a very short period of time. With serious growth in distribution, exciting new product development, and many more demands on his time, he severed his relationship with Cobb’s Diesel Performance in May of 2011, continuing to recognize that there was still strong equity in its brand.
“One of the most important things I have learned through the course of my career is that to be successful, you must surround yourself with successful people who have the same passion and work ethic as you do,” stated Matt Henderson. In 2010, Cobb’s served over 7,000 individual customers whether it be in-person or over the phone. From orders of $10 to $15,000, they were all handled with the same attitude of care and respect by my turn-around team. However, in order to take Cobb’s Diesel to the next level, I knew I would have to take the company over, eliminate it’s current staff, and bring to it the experienced senior master tech’s and engineering experts that have gained Performance Machine the reputation it enjoys today.”
I am pleased to announce that PMM Group, LLC will be acquiring the Cobb’s Diesel Performance name, equipment, and facilities on January 1, 2012. John has agreed to keep the current staff on until they find another job, or until the end of the year, at which time they will be replaced by my current make it happen Performance Machine team and others currently engaged in the interview process. Whether you buy from us or not, always remember that we are here to help. My entire team loves everything about the diesel market. It is the best group of people to work with, and we are excited about the future, the many new products we will be launching, and bringing the Cobb’s Diesel Performance assets under the PMM Group umbrella.”
“I have been offered a new role in another company in the engineering field and am six classes away from finishing my mechanical engineering degree”, said John. “My new employer is going to allow me to finish school while working for them. I will also be taking on a Part-Time Product Management role to develop new products for Performance Machine & MFG., as this has always been my strong point in the industry. I simply never had the dedicated time to do so in the past. This industry is where my heart is and always will be.”
