History of Shop Teks

  • Jack Hughes founded Shop Teks in 2000, after having been an installer for Garmat USA, throughout the Southeast US, for seven years.
  • Shop Teks began as a paint booth service company, but Jack had a larger vision and began adding other equipment and services to the line-up.
  • Over the years, Shop Teks has carefully selected equipment brands that we could stand behind, as well as employees who hold common values: the most important ones to be honest and loyal to customers.
  • Today, Shop Teks consists of 6 employees, with over 100 years of experience, and is located in Lilburn, GA, in a 5,000 square foot building, with office, warehouse, and training facility.

We strive to continue to grow our business through successful customer relationships by providing quality products and exceptional service.
