The renovation adds 18 lifts, including mobile lifts for increased flexibility, for a total of 54 stalls with 40 lifts.

The Ford dealership off U.S. 35 said it has also added new locker spaces, break and training rooms for technicians.

The dealership has also remodeled its service drive, write-up, lounge and customer areas. Overall, the dealership said it has tripled the capacity of its parts storage space to more than 7,000 square feet, including a tire carousel vending machine.

“The combined effect of these changes allows for increased appointment availability, shorter wait times and a streamlined in-store experience,” the dealership said. Also added were three level III DC fast electric vehicle (EV) chargers and 6 level II EV chargers, “most of which will be publicly accessible,” the business said.

“Beyond the improvements to availability and turnaround time for our customers, this is a huge win for all of our service employees.” said John Martin, Germain’s general manager. “This investment will help us keep Greene County residents and business owners on the road in top shape, and provide careers for dozens of associates.”

Completion of the expansion is expected in early June.
