Larry H. Miller Dealerships acquires Berge Ford

Larry H. Miller Dealerships has acquired Berge Ford in Mesa. This brings the dealership group to nine stores in the Phoenix metro area.

“We’re thrilled to continue to grow our presence with a strong brand in a market we love,” Dean Fitzpatrick, president of Larry H. Miller Dealerships, said in a release.

“The Berge family has built this dealership into a Ford Triple Crown winner as they have provided superior customer service to the residents of Mesa and the greater Phoenix area over the past 75 years. We look forward to building upon their legacy by incorporating our own company principles and values, and we are committed to excellence for our customers, employees and community.”

The acquisition consists of a sales and service center, which will be renamed Larry H. Miller Ford Mesa; a collision center, Larry H. Miller Collision Center East Valley; a commercial vehicle center, Larry H. Miller Ford Mesa Commercial Vehicle Center; and an off-site quick lane, Larry H. Miller Quick Lane Tire and Auto Center. The Pit Stop — a café and coffee shop — is also located in the dealership.

Larry H. Miller Dealerships will retain the existing employees at the dealership, bringing the total number of Arizona-based personnel to more than 1,500 at 13 dealership locations, according to the release.

Larry H. Miller Ford Mesa, Larry H. Miller Collision Center East Valley and Larry H. Miller Ford Mesa Commercial Vehicle Center are at 460 and 461 E. Auto Center Drive. Larry H. Miller Quick Lane Tire and Auto Center is at 6459 E. Southern Ave.
