Hall Automotive Joins the MileOne Family

MileOne/Atlantic Automotive has announced that it has added Hall Automotive, Inc., a franchised dealer of 16 brand name vehicles and one of the largest automotive retailers in Virginia, to its family of dealerships.

"I am thrilled that Hall has partnered up with such a quality organization as MileOne,” comments Thad Nowak, President of Hall Automotive. “From the beginning, it was obvious that we share many of the same values and high standards, along with a culture that is common in any truly successful business. Our employees and customers are what it is all about!"

"Steve Fader has built a terrific organization that is certainly focused on future strategic growth and expansion. We (Hall) are very excited to be a part of the team and look forward to the many rewarding opportunities the automotive industry will offer us.”

Steven Fader states that his “focus everyday is not on acquisitions but on running good dealership groups that concentrate on service”. That is exactly what Hall Automotive will bring to MileOne. The name Hall also has a good reputation in the community and is well known for its charitable and civic endeavors which will not change under MileOne.

MileOne currently owns and operates 47 car dealerships throughout Maryland, Washington DC and Pennsylvania. With the Hall addition, MileOne will add 2 new brand name plates—Ford, Hummer—bringing its total brand offerings to 27. The other 12 dealerships under the Hall umbrella includes franchises which MileOne already offers in its mix—Acura, Chevrolet, Chrysler, Dodge, Honda, Hyundai, GMC, Jeep, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan and Pontiac—bringing the company’s actual number of dealerships to 65.
