Reineke Dealerships buys 2 Tiffin businesses

A local auto dealership announced the purchase of two local companies Tuesday.

According to a Reineke Family Dealerships release, Reineke RV has acquired Fort Ball RV & Auto Sales and Eclipse Auto Care in Tiffin.

“We’re looking forward to serving customers in and around the Tiffin community with a number of products, services and accessories from Reineke RV and Eclipse Auto Care,” company co-owner Dan Reineke said in a news release. “With the addition of the Tiffin location, we’ll be able to better serve the market in northwest Ohio.”

According to the release, General Manager Jamie Chalfin is to oversee Reineke RV locations in Toledo and Tiffin, along with Eclipse Auto Care in Tiffin.

The full-service RV dealerships are to offer trailers, parts, installation, maintenance and repairs. Eclipse is to offer vehicle services and accessories.

“Whether you need a fifth-wheel hitch installed, a part ordered or help picking out a new camper, Reineke RV is your full-service solution,” Chalfin said in the release.

The news comes less than a month after the dealership announced a partnership with Coleman Sales and Service, Toledo, which created Reineke RV.

The headquarters for Reineke RV is 5353 Lewis Ave., Toledo.

The dealership’s expansion follows the June purchase of Gene Stevens Honda in Findlay.

The Reineke Family Dealership operates in Fostoria, Tiffin, Lima, Upper Sandusky, Findlay and North Baltimore. The company also sells Ford, Lincoln, Nissan, Honda, Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and RAM vehicles.

A customer appreciation open house is planned and a date is to be announced soon.
