The Automaster was founded in 1968 when Jack acquired his first dealership, a small Rambler franchise. Originally only one building, Jack added a service facility in the back and changed the name to The Automaster.

After diligently pursuing Mercedes-Benz, The Automaster acquired Vermont's only Mercedes-Benz franchise in 1969. The Honda franchise was added in 1973, followed by BMW in 1979, and most recently MINI in 2012. In 1984 Jack moved his business into its current award winning Automaster facility, which now spans 30 acres between 3 separate buildings.

Today, The Automaster, a family run business employs over 150 employees including two of Jack's sons John and Steele as our Vice Presidents of the company.
