Texas Motive Solutions was established in 2018 with the blessings of Hawker Powersource and Interstate Batteries. While the company itself is young, the people who advise and support our customers have been leaders in the motive industry for as many as 30 years.

The company was co-founded by Evin Sisemore, a veteran of the battery industry, and her husband Justin,when Interstate was looking for an outside firm to take over its sales and service responsibilities for the Hawker Powersource line. Both battery companies and the Sisemores all agreed – they wanted to facilitate a transition that would ultimately lead to the best service and care for Hawker customers.

From the outset, the Sisemores knew that the only way they wanted to build the business would be to ascribe to a service first mission. With Hawker Powersource, they already had the best motive product line in the industry, but they also wanted to be able to offer the best sales, service and technical support for Hawker motive solutions in the Texas market.

That’s why you’ll find so many familiar faces on our team. To be the best, Texas Motive Solutions hired the best – including many sales, operations and service employees from Interstate. We’ve also made significant investments to hire and train new technicians, so our customers get the technical support they need a.s.a.p.

While we aim to provide the best forklift battery products and services at Texas Motive Solutions, faith and integrity are the heart and soul of our business. Service comes third only to Christ and Family, because without him we can do nothing.
