San Bernardino-based and family run, Cummings Auto Group has purchased the Nissan dealership in the San Bernardino Auto Mall.
Cliff Cummings, head of Cummings Auto Group, plans to make major renovations to the property, including spending significant amounts of capital to rehabilitate the location and bring it in-line with the current Nissan National Image Requirements.
“This is an exciting opportunity for us and the City of San Bernardino,” Cummings said in the statement. “This will require a significant investment of time and resources to get where we want to be eventually, but I see nothing but upside to this acquisition.”
Cummings’ son, Michael Cummings will manage the Nissan dealership. Michael Cummings has worked for the auto group in a variety of positions for several years, according to the statement.
“Other ownership groups have come and gone here in San Bernardino but our local, family-oriented organization is not only still here after more than 30 years, but is expanding,” said Michael Cummings. “I’ve been well-prepared under the tutelage of my father and our talented management team and I look forward to this new challenge.”
Both Cummings noted that the acquisition of the new dealership was made possible by their strong team of employees saying, in essence that they will be able to maintain the standard of excellence and family feeling at the Nissan dealership because they have so many talented employees that can be promoted from within to Nissan.
Cummings Auto Group now owns three dealerships at the San Bernardino Auto Mall, which is next to Interstate 215: Toyota of San Bernardino, Subaru of San Bernardino, and Nissan of San Bernardino.
