Pro Fleet Care Brings Its Rust Proofing System To SWFL

New franchise the first to serve residents and businesses in the Sunshine State

CAPE CORAL, Fla. (Feb. 3, 2021) – Pro Fleet Care, a leader in mobile residential and commercial rust control services, is pleased to announce the grand opening of its first Florida location in Cape Coral. Pro Fleet Care uses a rust proofing system that creates a barrier of protection for metals and neutralizes the harmful effects of salt and moisture. Local Pro Fleet Care franchisee Andrew Kohne is excited to introduce his product and services to the Southwest Florida marketplace.

“Residents and businesses alike, especially those living near coastal waterways, deal with costly corrosive rust issues with air conditioners, pool pumps, boat trailers, boat lifts, travel trailers, or fleet vehicles because of the saltwater and humidity,” said Kohne. “The agricultural industry is also plagued with corrosive rust of their equipment due to the effects of fertilizer.”

Bob Lawrie founded Pro Fleet Care in Canada in 1984 to protect metals against rust. While others at the time were using tar and wax, he focused on an alternative solution using a light chemical that could migrate into seams and crevices. This concept grew in popularity over the years and is now utilized across the globe. Over the past 35+ years, Pro Fleet Care has worked with farmers and landscapers, large and small vehicle fleet owners, governmental agencies, and Fortune 100 companies.

Franchise owner Andrew Kohne is now expanding on the concept to bring this trusted product and service directly to homeowners and businesses in the Southwest Florida area.

“No one in Florida has addressed the ongoing issue of corrosive rust,” says Kohne.  “I am impressed with the results of the Pro Fleet Care rust protection product, its mobile service model and its affordable cost to customers.”

Before opening Pro Fleet Care Kohne worked in various management and service roles in the hospitality, golf and home builder industries. He understands the importance of quality workmanship and customer satisfaction.

“Kohne’s experience, values and reputation in the community will make him an exceptional Pr Fleet Care owner and operator,” said  Greg Lawrie, founder of Pro Fleet Care.  “I look forward to working with Andrew and also spending more time in beautiful Southwest Florida- our southern paradise.”
