Dealer Groups: Tasca expands to Pennsylvania, Zeigler lands on top workplace list
Ahead of next week's NADA Show 2023 event in Dallas, at least two dealer groups have news to celebrate.
Starting in the Northeast, Tasca Automotive Group, which is based in Rhode Island, has acquired Gibbons Ford in Dickson City, Pa. from John Grow, who is retiring.
That’s according to a news release from Tim Lamb Group, which brokered the sale.
The store, which is Tasca’s first in Pennsylvania, has been renamed Tasca Ford Dickson City.
Tasca retained all of the dealership’s 71 employees.
“We understand how important honesty, integrity, and customer satisfaction are to a company,” Tasca vice president Bob Tasca III said in a news release. “These values and principles are the same ones that we have been committed to providing since my great grandfather Bob Tasca Sr. founded Tasca Automotive Group in 1943 and we are happy to carry them on at Tasca Ford Dickson City.”
The group now has 31 locations through in Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Illinois, Florida, New York, Missouri and Pennsylvania.
“This is our first dealership in Pennsylvania, and we are excited to be expanding into a new market and providing a stress-free car shopping experience with exceptional car care and customer service,” Tasca said.
Moving to the Midwest, Michigan-based Zeigler Auto Group said it ranked No. 37 on Glassdoor’s 100 Best Places to Work in the U.S. for 2023 (among large companies). The retailer said it was tops among dealer groups and automotive companies.
“Being recognized by Glassdoor as one of the Best Places to Work for 2023 alongside companies larger than us, truly demonstrates how committed we are to our team members,” president and CEO Aaron Zeigler said in a news release.
“This means investing in innovative processes and training that equips our employees with the skills needed to exceed customer expectations without sacrificing work-life balance,” he said.
Mike Van Ryn, who is director of talent development at Zeigler, added: “Recognition at the highest level from Glassdoor is an honor for our team at Zeigler Auto Group. This award is a milestone for us and validates our commitment to each other for truly living out our values as an organization.
“We help each other grow, develop and excel in our roles.Team members and customers can experience our world-class culture,” he said. “We are thankful to be among these truly amazing organizations!”
