March 24, 2011 - PRLog -- PEORIA - The Uftring Auto Group is proud to announce it has finalized the purchase of Neil Norton Cadillac in Peoria. Negotiations to purchase the dealership concluded on March 23rd. Gary Uftring, president of the Uftring Auto Group, said, “I have wanted to provide Cadillac as a luxury option for our customers for many years. This is a brand I am passionate about and excited to offer.” Mr. Uftring has long admired the Cadillac franchise and considers it a dream come true to be a Cadillac dealer in Peoria. Additionally, the purchase has allowed Mr. Uftring the opportunity to enhance his partnership with Mark Weston, CEO of the Uftring Auto Group. As of March 23rd, the dealership has merged with the former Jim McComb Chevrolet and is now under operation as Uftring Weston Chevrolet Cadillac.

Mr. Larry Norton, dealer at the former Neil Norton Cadillac, will retain a position at the new dealership. “Gary Uftring and the Uftring Auto Group share the same values of integrity and excellence in customer service that have always been the Neil Norton Cadillac way of doing business,” said Mr. Norton. “This merger will improve the ownership experience for current and future Cadillac customers in the Peoria area.” Mr. Uftring added, “We are proud to have Mr. Norton and his valuable years of experience join the Uftring Auto Group team.”

Through March 31st, the new dealership will be under operation in two locations: the former Neil Norton Cadillac at 1600 West War Memorial Drive and the former Jim McComb Chevrolet at 3622 North University Street in Peoria. Starting April 1st, Cadillac’s temporary home will be at the former Jim McComb Chevrolet. All Chevrolet and Cadillac sales and service will be available at this location.

The former Neil Norton location will soon be undergoing an extensive remodel and will reopen as the premier Chevrolet and Cadillac dealer in the greater Peoria area.

Cadillac is the first American luxury brand carried by the Uftring Auto Group, whose current luxury car offerings include Jaguar, Land Rover, Range Rover, and Saab. “Cadillac has an exceptional product lineup that we are proud to carry, including the Cadillac CTS, SRX and Escalade,” said Mark Weston. “We believe our customers will be just as excited as we are about these amazing vehicles.”
