We keep people safe and moving on the road of life.
In 1972, Carl Weeks and his brothers, started the Augusta Transmission Clinic. It was a small but busy shop focused on taking care of people. Even then it was closed on weekends so the team could be with family, rest and recharge, and give the best service possible to the community.
Brian and Chris Weeks grew up in the ATC garage and on the local dirt track. They started racing go karts, then late model cars on dirt and asphalt and then road course racing from Daytona, FL to Watkins Glen, NY. With Brian as the driver and Chris as the crew chief, they made a great team.
Their love for cars led the Weeks to engineering school. They went to get better at racing but came away with a desire to excel at servicing cars and being ready for the future of cars.
In 1999, Brian and Chris Weeks bought ATC from their father and uncles. Coming off the racing circuit, Brian and Chris now focused on building families and the family business. Brian and Chris learned many lessons watching their dad care for people and their cars. Like putting people first, being a good steward and focusing on the small things to make a big difference. That spirit drives the business today.
We are steadfast in maintaining the health and safety of vehicles so people don’t have to worry about it. That’s how we build trust – one vehicle at a time.
“The Weeks family exemplifies character, high values, and humility and has helped them attract some of the best people in the Augusta area. [atc] has been a customer to Jasper Engines and Transmissions for 25 years. I have witnessed their overall growth and it’s been possible due to the great people that make up [atc].”

“Both Brian and Chris are of high integrity and ethics and that shows when they work with me and their fellow colleagues in Pro Service. Working in an industry that has not always had a reputation for good moral principles, [atc] Auto Center is the shining star that lights up the industry and their community with goodness in trust and ethics.”
Founder and leader of Pro Service shop owner and peer group
“Over the years I have met thousands of shop owners, and I can say without a doubt that Brian and Chris are incredible people, and in [atc] they have built an organization that’s the envy of the industry. Their principles are ones to be admired by all and their dedication to excellence is second to none.”

“They treat everyone like they are part of their own family! Always looking for ways to celebrate their wins and coming along side of them to help them through trying times. They are not only incredible business owners but are even greater people and I am blessed to know them!”
