TCS Trucking, Bobcat Automotive & Collision

SBDC @ New Mexico State University - Carlsbad

Melissa Acosta is a devoted Christian, mother, grandmother and President/CEO- of TCS Trucking, Bobcat Automotive & Collision and Managing Partner at Mean Oilfield Supply (Carlsbad). She is Small Business Development Center at New Mexico State University – Carlsbad’s “Star Client” of the year. Melissa’s story is very unique; she immigrated to southeast New Mexico from Ojinaga, Chihuahua with her family in 1994. Melissa excelled in school, studied and internalized the Trucking and Automotive Repair Business from her father. Today, Melissa runs multiple highly successful and interrelated services companies in southeast New Mexico, generating tens of millions of dollars per year in economic impact to the area.

Her focused vision, commitment to excellence and strong business acumen has proven to be a tremendous asset to Eddy County and beyond. Despite challenging economic circumstances and fierce competition, her companies employ 150 local area residents and generated over $22 million in sales in 2014.  Most notably, she is investing; her recent acquisition of 20 belly dump trucks to complement trucking operations, diversification into fencing, pest control, and collision repair uniquely positions her organization for immediate and long-term impact in the region.

Melissa earned the SBDC at NMSU-C “Star Client of the Year” nomination because of the strategic value her company provides and consistent positive impact delivered to the Carlsbad area. Melissa’s value driven, high integrity operation is principle centered and committed to long-term growth- a phenomenal benefit to Carlsbad and southeastern New Mexico. We are very proud of Melissa and her organization and are honored to have the opportunity to work with them.

“We value our relationship with SBDC at NMSU-C and appreciate their ongoing support.”
