Mequon Auto Dealer Constructs New Facility and Creates 42 New Jobs
Sommerís Automotive has just completed construction of a new 16,000 square foot Subaru dealership and completely remodeled their Buick-GMC facility.
The exclusive Subaru signature facility will house an expanded showroom, service center, service reception area, and Subaru sales offices. Sommerís Automotive is the #1 Subaru dealer in Wisconsin.
†ďWe have experienced a tremendous growth in our Subaru business and felt that, in spite of the challenging economy, the time was right to build a new state-of-the-art dealership. The new facility will allow us to continue serving our customers at the high level they have come to expect,Ē stated Wally Sommer.
Sommerís has also completed the full renovation of their Buick-GMC dealership. The GMC franchise was awarded to Sommerís in January 2011 and in a few short months they began the transformation from a single building to two separate dealership facilities. The renovation of the Buick-GMC facility provides contemporary sales, service and customer lounge areas.
The growth of the Sommerís Subaru franchise and the addition of the GMC franchise has also translated into additional jobs at the dealership. ďAs happy as we are with the success of our brands, the real satisfaction comes in the addition of great people to our company,Ē stated Don Sommer. Sommer continued, ďNot only have we been able to add 42 new people to the staff, but we continue to retain long-term employees like Al Pintor, who has been here for 52 years. We know that great brands are crucial to success, but itís the people who bring our customers the great service that they enjoy.Ē
Sommerís Automotive has been an integral part of the Mequon community since 1943.† This expansion signifies the Sommersí ongoing commitment to the people of Southeastern Wisconsin.
