Ken Garff Buys Henry Day Ford
Ken Garff Automotive Group has purchased Henry Day Ford, effective June 1, 2018, combining the expertise of two premier, family-owned auto companies in Utah.
“We whole-heartedly welcome the Henry Day dealership, its employees and customers into the Ken Garff family,” said John Garff, CEO, Garff Enterprises, Inc. “We know each other well, and our businesses complement each other perfectly.”
The two auto giants were established in Utah just two years apart: Ken Garff in 1932 and Henry Day in 1934.
“We have no plans for a reduction in force,” said Garff, whose company was ranked eighth largest dealership group based in the country by Automotive News. “Instead, we see growth opportunities as we combine strengths and services of both companies to benefit our customers.”
Henry Day Ford will change its name to Ken Garff West Valley Ford and will provide customers with GarffCare, the AdvantageCare pre-paid vehicle maintenance package and more vehicle options.
“We are excited to join teams and continue to bring excellent service to our customers,” said Winston Bennion, general manager at Ken Garff West Valley Ford. “The West Valley community is wonderful, and we will continue to deliver the excellent service they have received from Henry Day’s team.”
“Our teams are all still in place, so customers can continue receiving superior service they’ve always expected.”
The Day family is stepping away from the business.
