Hendrick Automotive Group Acquires Beck Imports Of The Carolinas

Long-time Mercedes-Benz Dealer Rick Hendrick and the Hendrick Automotive Group will become the new owner of two Mercedes-Benz dealerships in the Charlotte area.


The first location will result from the acquisition of Beck Imports. Hendrick assumed ownership of Beck Imports of the Carolinas at 5141 East Independence Blvd., Charlotte, NC 28212 on April 15, 2009.

The second location at 10937 Old Statesville Road, Charlotte, NC, will be a new facility with targeted completion in 2011. Autohaus is a comprehensive facility design and operational blueprint that Mercedes-Benz has developed to improve the dealership sales and service experience for customers. 


Hendrick Automotive Group has been a part of the Mercedes-Benz dealer network since 1982, operating a Mercedes-Benz dealership in Hickory, North Carolina. The Group consists of over 65 dealerships in about 10 states.


“As a proven player in our dealer network, we are confident that the Hendrick Automotive Group will deliver a high level of customer service for current Beck Imports customers and prospective customers who may be considering a Mercedes-Benz vehicle in the Charlotte area,” said Kevin Sreenan, General Manager, Mercedes-Benz USA Southern Region. “The Charlotte region is one of the top 20 metropolitan markets for Mercedes-Benz vehicle sales. As Mercedes-Benz looks to grow its market share in the Charlotte region, the Hendrick Automotive Group will be a strong partner for us.”
