Columbus Motor Company is on a mission to do things differently than other automotive dealers! We focus our efforts on providing unmatched quality automotive products and service. We implemented the ‘Best Price Philosophy’ and strive to provide a more relaxed, honest, and enjoyable car buying experience. We aim to exceed our customers’ and employees’ expectations, maintaining their loyalty for a lifetime. We recognize the greatest resource we have is our employees and we never take that for granted. We strive to fill open positions within our ranks first, creating career paths for many of our employees regardless of where they start in our company.
Columbus Motor Company was created in May 2014, when Andy Swanson purchased the dealership. In 2017, Andy and Dave Whalen became business partners and Dave also serves as the General Manager of the dealership. Andy and Dave have also partnered with The Rydell Company. The Rydell Company was founded in 1954 and has grown into a group of 85 stores in 17 states! Their Founder, Leonard Rydell, had many strongly held business and personal philosophies that served him well. These philosophies, known as “Leonardism’s”, still help guide us through our daily business and personal decisions. Some of our favorite “Leonardism’s” are…
“Never take advantage of a customer, even if you can.”
“Put yourself in a position to take care of as many people as possible.”
“Seek excellence, and the rest will follow.”
