About Us

We're about building lasting relationships.

Paul Motor Company was founded in 1918 by John R. Paul in Charleston, South Carolina. It owned Ford, Fordson, Mercury and Lincoln dealerships where three generations worked until the businesses were sold. PMC was then dormant for nearly 20 years until in 2007, J. R. Paul's great grandsons founded it in Montreal, choosing the Palmetto tree as its logo, paying homage to the official state tree of SC.
