Koons Automotive Named Top 20 Auto Groups in U.S.

I’m so proud to report that Koons Automotive was named #16 on Automotive News’ annual list of “Top 125 Largest Dealership Groups,” based on new vehicle sales for 2011. We ranked #10 largest for private automotive groups in the country, and ranked #1 largest dealership group headquartered in the Mid-Atlantic region; including Washington, DC, Maryland, Virginia and Delaware.

If that’s not enough great news, our company also continues to expand in 2012! With the recent addition of Mercedes-Benz of Catonsville to the Koons Family – located in Baltimore, Maryland – Koons now represents 31 franchises in the Mid-Atlantic area, employing over 5,000 local employees.

While we’re thrilled with our performance in 2011, my father (company President & CEO Jim Koons) always instills in all employees the mantra of “Better Before Bigger,” indicating that customer service is always our paramount focus in everything we do!

It’s our loyal customers and dedicated employees who make us one of the Nation’s biggest! We’re eternally grateful for your support and look forward to a great remainder of 2012!
