Lancaster County Motors has been a family owned business since 1935, when we were first awarded the Packard, Studebaker and MG franchises. In the 75 years since the first car was sold in Lancaster County, the business has continued to grow and service Lancaster and the surrounding communities.
In 1957, the company was awarded the Mercedes-Benz franchise, trading under the name of Lancaster County Motors, Inc., with the first dealership being located on North Prince Street in Lancaster City. We are the oldest Mercedes Benz dealer in the state of Pennsylvania, and one of the 10 oldest in the USA.
In November of 1972, we acquired the Subaru franchise. Over the last 39 years, the Subaru franchise has grown into the largest Subaru Dealership in Central, PA. We have been recognized repeatedly by Subaru for award winning sales, service and parts operations. In 1980, Lancaster County Motors, Inc., moved to its current location on the Manheim Pike in East Petersburg, PA where we conducted business as a Mercedes Benz and Subaru dealership.
As Lancaster County Motors, Inc., grew, the need to expand the dealership facilities was necessary. In 2001, we built an exclusive  facility for our Mercedes-Benz franchise at 1550 Commerce Drive and began conducting business as Mercedes-Benz of Lancaster. Most recently, Mercedes Benz of Lancaster was named "Best of the Best" and received an award honoring top MB dealers in customer satisfaction, sales increases, facilities, and much more.
With the separation and relocation of the Mercedes-Benz franchise, the buildings housing the Subaru franchise were ready for an upgrade. In January 2003, renovations were done at the 5260 Main Street location, the dealership became a Signature Subaru facility and achieved the "Stellar Performer" award. This is an extensive program where procedures and processes were developed for customer satisfaction and retention.
In 1998, we acquired the Quarryville Chrysler Plymouth Dodge dealership in Quarryville PA. In 1999, we built an exclusive Chrysler facility located at 804 Lancaster Pike Quarryville, PA. At that time, we were awarded the Jeep franchise and the business was renamed, Providence Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep. In January 2003, we acquired Wenger Pontiac GMC. In March of 2005 a new exclusive facility for the Pontiac GMC franchises was built at 796 Lancaster Pike Quarryville, PA and the business was relocated adjacent to the Chrysler facility. Currently, we are operating as Providence Autos, representing Chrysler, Dodge, Ram, Jeep and GMC franchises.
On September 1, 2005, the Hyundai and Kia franchises were added to the corporation. The Hyundai store is located at 5240 Main Street and the Kia store is located at 5250 Main Street East Petersburg, PA.
Lancaster County Motors, Inc. is currently building a new Mercedes Benz store on the Manheim Pike in East Petersburg, PA, to meet the new facility initiatives mandated by Mercedes-Benz USA. The new site will be ready for business in December 2012.
As a business, Lancaster County Motors has continued to grow and support the local community through job opportunities, and by involvement in organizations such as the Lancaster Chamber of Commerce, Fulton Theater, American Heart Association, March of Dimes, American Cancer Society, and local High School Sports. We value the men and women who have made our company the success that it is today.
