Grand Rapids, MI – October 15, 2014 – Todd Wenzel announced today that they have purchased the 29th Street property where they will begin remodeling the 34,000 square foot building to house their Collision and Appearance Center; currently located at Todd Wenzel Buick GMC on 28th Street.
The dealer group plans to also move their centralized Business Development Center or BDC to the second floor of the building.
By relocating the current body shop to 2700 29th St., Todd Wenzel Buick GMC will be able to improve the dealership’s quality of customer service and increase work flow.
“We have recognized for some time now that our Buick and GMC business is greatly expanding and the 28th St. facility is bursting at the seams,” Wenzel said, “This expansion will provide much needed relief and allow for additional mechanical service growth. Our customers will experience a better and more expedient flow in our service lane, as well as a quicker turnaround time when their vehicle is in service.”
The dealership will relocate 30 current employees to the new facility and plans to add 20-30 additional jobs which will consist of detailers, body, paint and mechanical technicians, business call center representatives, and clerical and managerial positions.
Wenzel says the facility is expected to open in late November, hopefully before the winter weather sets in.
