Pat O’Brien Chevrolet is officially open for business in Norwalk.
O’Brien, who owns four other Ohio car dealerships, completed the purchase of the Kasper facility on Thursday.
O’Brien paid $2.1 million for the Kasper dealership, according to auditor’s office records. The deal was a cash transaction.
“We’ve been looking to expand,” O’Brien said Friday. “We’ve been considering Norwalk for a few months.”
Kasper employed 34 people.
“We’re retaining everybody,” O’Brien said. “In fact, we want to double that number of employees.
“We need everything,” he said about what jobs are available. “We need sales professionals, service mechanics, detailers, body shop — we’re looking to grow.”
