In an era of continuous change, we at the Baumann Auto Group would like to celebrate 60 years of successfully serving the community. Our tradition of trust began in 1956, when Al Baumann purchased Nieburger Chevrolet in Fremont. The 1950's turned into a life-changing decade for Al Baumann, and one that would shape the rest of his life... and his family's. Not only did Al begin a new career, but he had a son and began the business that was to evolve into the Baumann Auto Group.
Al started his automotive career in 1953, selling cars at a Pontiac-Cadillac dealership in Fremont, Ohio. Two years later, his son, Buck was born. The following year, Al made a big step and purchased his own dealership in Fremont... and Al Baumann Chevrolet began.
Al's hard work and integrity in his business dealings laid the foundation for success. His reputation grew over the years, not only among customers... but also among his employees, many of which stayed with the company for many years... resulting in long-lasting relationships and (most of all) friendships.
With that tradition of trust well-established, business boomed and led to the purchase of a Buick franchise in 1984 and a further expansion, in 1990, which was to include the Pontiac-Buick-GMC dealership in Tiffin, Ohio. In 2001, the Chrysler-Jeep-Dodge dealership in Fremont was acquired, followed by the Chevrolet-Cadillac-Buick-Pontiac dealership in Port Clinton, Ohio later that same year. The Baumann Auto Group is continuing to grow, in August 2006 the Chrysler-Jeep-Dodge dealership in Port Clinton was purchased. Partnered with that is our new state of the art building to house the Chrysler-Jeep-Dodge franchise in Port Clinton. In August of 2008 we purchased a Chrysler-Jeep-Dodge franchise in Norwalk, Ohio and to add to that location in Norwalk we recently purchased a Hyundai franchise in November 2010. Adding to the tradition of trust, in April 2012 we purchased Genoa Ford and Genoa Chevrolet in Genoa Ohio. On May 1, 2013 we acquired the Chevrolet franchise at our Tiffin location, it is now Baumann Chevrolet Buick GMC in Tiffin!
Buck is proud to continue his father's vision with the same tradition of trust and family atmosphere in the 9 dealerships that are in Fremont, Tiffin, Port Clinton, Norwalk and Genoa. BAUMANN WON'T BE BEAT! We don't compromise honesty and ethics, we proudly employ high quality people... and we care about the people we serve... which is YOU, our loyal customer.
