WHO WE ARE
Serving Eastern North Carolina since 1974!
Established in 1974, Coastal Diesel Service is a family-owned business that proudly serves eastern NC. The foundation of our business was laid by Mr. and Mrs. Henry Bahr. Originally, our primary source of revenue was the Fuel Shop, renowned for its specialized injection pump repairs.
In 1978, a significant chapter in our history began. The company was acquired by Tom and Ruthie Bland, who reimagined and expanded it into the Coastal Diesel many have come to recognize and trust. Under their guidance, the company evolved to better cater to its clientele. The introduction of a comprehensive warehouse, a state-of-the-art fuel injection repair facility, and a sophisticated diesel engine and generator repair service department marked the growth trajectory. Their ethos was simple – prioritize the customer, delivering unparalleled care and service.
2023 heralded a new era for Coastal Diesel. Tom chose to hang up his boots, handing over the reins to Reed and Abbie Sheffield, both of whom were seasoned members of the Coastal Diesel family at the time.
Statement from the new owners:
"While ownership is changing, our commitment to excellence in both quality and customer service will remain. We willstrive to honor Tom's legacy with the same ambition and pride that he himself so diligently displayed in all his years as owner.
We would like to thank all of our customers and very much look forward to serving you in the years to come. Lastly, thank you to our dedicated staff of co-workers for standing with us during this transition, we are extremely grateful to you all."
Coastal Diesel is continually improving their standards and appreciate regular feedback so we can continue to meet the needs of our customers.
