First Selectman Ellen Scalettar recently visited Crest Lincoln/Jaguar whose home has been Woodbridge for 22 years. Scalettar frequently visits Woodbridge businesses to discuss current Town topics and deepen the bond between Town Hall and the Town’s businesses.
Richard Fitzpatrick has owned Crest since 1976 and moved the dealership to Woodbridge in 1994 for location and convenience. “Being in Woodbridge allows us to be at the heart of our clientele. The Merritt Parkway allows for easy access within a 30 mile radius,” explains Steve Nathman, General Manager.
While the Lincoln Compact Sports Utility and the Jaguar Sports Utility are the most popular selling cars, Crest offers a wide array of new and used cars from various top automakers such as Ford, Buick, Toyota, Subaru, Chevrolet, Hyundai, Jeep and Mazda. The dealership also sells hybrids and cars with eco-friendly features.
Crest offers State emissions testing to the public. Additionally, the dealership services all model cars and prides itself on its top-ranked customer service. “Our reputation is what we cherish more than anything in the world. We are extremely service oriented. What we say we will do for a client, is what we do. Ongoing customer relationships is our focus,” said Nathman. “We have happy customers,” adds Jeff White, Parts & Service Director.
Crest operates with a staff of 45 employees many of whom have been with the dealership for over 30 years. Crest is proud to be a part of the Woodbridge Business District and supports local organizations and events including Driven to Give in which Crest partners with the JCC and the dealership donates $20 to the JCC for every test drive up to $8,000.
“Each time I visit a Woodbridge business, I am impressed by the depth and quality of service. The Crest dealership is one of the Town’s largest employers and is an important anchor in our business community,” said Scalettar as she concluded the visit with Crest Lincoln/Jaguar.
