Shortly after the purchase of Mohawk, another company named Whirlaway was purchased, and it was then incorporated into A.C.C. Rebuilders in December 1962. It then moved to its current location at 853 E. H. Crump Boulevard, Memphis, Tennessee on January 22, 1963.
After the death of W. T. Vincent, his portion was retained by William and Chick Charnes. Upon the death of William in 1973, his sons Ernest Clifford and William Larry took over his partnership. When the youngest son, Charles Michael, became of age, he too shared in this partnership. Shortly after the death of William, Chick retired and his son, Ronald Marvin, assumed his share of the partnership.
In 1984, Ernest Clifford died, but Larry and Michael still retain the partnership of William and Ronnie retain the portion from Chick.
