Berglund has operated 10 dealerships, representing over 20 brands and employing over 600 people in Virginia. The brand extension and geographical location seemed like a natural fit to William Farrell, President of Berglund Automotive, “We’re excited about adding this new location and line of luxury import cars to our already robust offering in SW Virginia. This market is our hometown and our family feels fortunate to be a part of it and always has. This expansion of our company is designed to increase our selection and keep our focus on this market.”
April 2013, nearly *400,000 new luxury vehicles were sold just in the first quarter and according to Kelley Blue Book that’s an all time high since 2007. According to CNBC, BMW sales nationally are up **45%. This year appears to be a good one for having purchased the dealership since BMW sales are up 23% annually while Volvo is up 15%.
