Cullman Chrysler broke ground on a new facility Tuesday and will initially add 5-10 jobs in Cullman.
The Dodge Jeep Ram seller hopes to be completed by the beginning of December with a ribbon cutting ceremony shortly thereafter. Audientis Associate Nick Valentino said the new location will be more accessible for potential buyers and they hope to be selling cars in the new facility by January 2014, if not before.
“The visibility from Interstate 65 will be invaluable as customers travel up and down between Huntsville and Birmingham,” Valentino said. “It will be impossible to travel this Interstate without noticing Cullman Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram.”
Valentino said the new venue will double the size of the current dealership.
“Cullman Chrysler has enjoyed many successful years in its current location,” Valentino said. “We do believe our new location will be able to better serve our customers by providing additional service bays and adding the capability of being able to service heavy duty trucks.”
As the business first opens, 5-10 jobs will be expected to become available, but as the new location grows, Valentino said he believes the store will require many more.
The business will be located at 300 Benchmark Way Southwest in Cullman.
