TORONTO, June 10 /CNW/ - A brand new Mercedes-Benz and smart dealership
will open this fall in Boucherville, a suburb of Montreal.
The DUVALAUTO Group was honoured to have Marcus Breitschwerdt, President
and CEO of Mercedes-Benz Canada, and the Mayor of Boucherville, Mrs. Francine
Gadbois, attend the official groundbreaking ceremony to celebrate the
relocation and construction of their new Duval Mercedes-Benz dealership to be
built in Boucherville on highway 20 at exit 95.
Businessman Luc Duval is a third generation member of one of the most
important family of car dealers in Quebec and was proud to announce yesterday
that he will build his sixth dealership on the south shore of Montreal.
"Boucherville is a strategic location for DUVALAUTO.com and for
Mercedes-Benz," Duval said. "Our new location allows us to better serve our
customers that work and reside in one of the most dynamic regions of Quebec,"
The new dealership represents an investment of more than $6 million in
the region and will create approximately 30 new jobs.
The 40,000 sq. ft. Duval Mercedes-Benz complex will be modern,
eco-friendly and is one of the first automotive dealearships to meet LEED
building requirements. LEED is an environmental initiative to largely reduce
overall consumption of various forms of energy in the dealership. "By
investing in this new Mercedes-Benz facility and by chosing an environmentally
sound construction process, DUVALAUTO.com asserts its automotive leadership
role on the south shore of Montreal," mentioned Marcus Breitschwerdt,
President and CEO of Mercedes-Benz Canada.
This new building will easily accommodate more than 25 Mercedes-Benz and
smart vehicles in separate showrooms split between two floors. The facility
will also be able to welcome up to 12 vehicles in its interior drive-through
service area, allowing customers the ability to meet their service advisor in
the comfort of their vehicle to avoid unpleasant weather conditions.
In addition to a large selection of new vehicles, Duval Mercedes-Benz
will offer its clientele a broad range of certified pre-owned Mercedes-Benz
