UPublish story by Laura Hegedus

AKRON, OHIO (March 26, 2013)…The Collection Auto Group, Ohio’s largest dealer of luxury vehicles, has purchased the former location of Enterprise Rent-A-Car in Green. The current structure will be demolished to make way for the brand new Infiniti of Akron dealership – The Collection Auto Group’s 20th dealership location – which will open in October.

A groundbreaking celebration for the state-of-the-art $5.5 million new facility will take place at 2 p.m. on Thursday, March 28 at 3332 South Arlington Road. Expected to be on hand for the festivities are:

• Bernie Moreno, President of The Collection Auto Group

• Dave McFadden, Dealer Relationship Manager for Nissan Motor Acceptance Corporation

• Dick Norton, Mayor of the City of Green

• Dave France, President of Green’s City Council

• Wayne Weide, Director of Planning for the City of Green

• Jessica Hyser, Community Development Administrator for the City of Green

• Representatives from Infiniti, Nissan, VOCON and Independence Excavating

• Safety officials from the local fire and police departments

The largest volume selling Infiniti dealer in the Midwest, The Collection Auto Group already owns and manages Airport Infiniti and Infiniti of Beachwood -- so the company is especially well suited to satisfy Infiniti customers in Akron.

Infiniti of Akron will be The Collection Auto Group’s first Akron location, and will serve as an additional drop off site for the hundreds of clients that The Collection Auto Group already serves in the Akron and Canton areas.

“The Collection Auto Group is dedicated to providing exceptional customer service across all of our brands,” said Moreno. “Infiniti drivers in Akron can count on us for that same first-class experience, with upfront pricing on cars and customer’s trade-in vehicles.”

The new Infiniti dealership is Moreno’s latest move in an aggressive business growth plan. Since purchasing a Mercedes-Benz dealership in Cleveland in 2005, Moreno has expanded his privately owned company to include multiple elite automotive dealerships and an on-site performance center.

The state’s largest destination for luxury vehicles, The Collection Auto Group features Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Aston Martin, Lotus, Spyker, Maserati, Sprinter, and Fisker. The Collection Auto Group also offers smart, Acura, Infiniti, Nissan, Volkswagen, Buick, GMC, and authorized service for Saab, Hummer and Pontiac brands.

“I attribute The Collection Auto Group’s growth to our laser focus on customer satisfaction,” Moreno explained. “Our entire team focuses on delivering a memorable experience to all of our clients.”
