About Us

We're about building lasting relationships.

Paul Motor Company was founded in 1918 in Charleston, South Carolina by J. Robertson Paul, a Rhodes Scholar at Christ Church, Oxford in 1914, and a World War I veteran, who believed in the value of hard work, innovation, and community involvement. The company became one of the most successful and respected automotive dealerships in the Southeast, with a reputation for quality service and innovative marketing strategies.

Today, Paul Motor Company continues to be family-owned and operated by Robertson Paul's great-grandsons, who have expanded the business to become a leading leasing company based in Montreal. While the company has evolved over the years, the values and principles established by J. Robertson Paul continue to guide the business and shape its culture and values today.

The company's transition into a leasing company is a reflection of its ability to recognize emerging trends and opportunities, and its commitment to staying ahead of the curve. Despite its growth and expansion, Paul Motor Company has never lost sight of the importance of relationships and customer service. The company's success has always been built on strong relationships with customers, employees, and community partners, and this remains a top priority today.

At Paul Motor Company, the Palmetto tree has been chosen as the company's logo, paying homage to the official state tree of South Carolina, where the company's roots began. The Palmetto tree represents strength, resilience, and a deep connection to the local community, values that are at the heart of Paul Motor Company's culture.

Whether you are a long-time customer or a new client, you can expect personalized service, attention to detail, and a commitment to exceeding your expectations. The company's focus on innovation and relationships has led to the development of unique leasing programs and customized solutions that meet the needs of a wide range of customers.
