DUNCANSVILLE, Pa. - July 1, 2021 - (Newswire.com)
Matt Stuckey, President of Stuckey Automotive, has announced the acquisition of Joel Confer Ford of Bellefonte, located at 2892 Benner Pike. Joel Confer Ford of Bellefonte, which has been owned and operated by the Confer family since 2004, will be known as Stuckey Ford of Bellefonte effective July 1, 2021.
The all-new Stuckey Ford of Bellefonte, which is set to open Thursday, July 8, will mark the fifth dealership under Stuckey Automotive group of companies. Stuckey Ford of Bellefonte joins Stuckey Ford and Stuckey Subaru, both in Hollidaysburg, Stuckey Buick GMC in Altoona, and, most recently, Stuckey Mitsubishi of State College.
The agreement came to be after the businessmen were introduced by a mutual colleague and friend. "This introduction is one for which I'll always be grateful. We were gifted an opportunity to grow our brand in Centre County. It's humbling when a man like Joel trusts that you'll care for his business and customers as you would your own. We should all be so lucky to meet a Joel Confer in life," commented Matt Stuckey.
The Confer family will continue to operate Joel Confer Toyota and Joel Confer BMW, both located in State College. Mr. Confer says of the acquisition, "I have to applaud Matt and his team. As exciting as it is to watch their company grow, it appeases me even more to know they'll do right by our employees and our community. I just can't wait to see what they'll do next - and where!"
Joel Confer Ford of Bellefonte employs over 20 professionals, all of whom have been recruited to join the Stuckey Automotive organization. "We immediately recognized how the Confer team works harmoniously to care for each customer. It's the same way our team works and that makes this venture even more special," commented Matt Meiser, General Sales Manager at Stuckey Automotive.
Stuckey Ford of Bellefonte will host a Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting ceremony in the Fall. For more information about Stuckey Automotive, please contact Karen Beauchamp, Marketing Director, at 814.693.4866 or Karen@StuckeyAuto.com.
