Reineke Ford Celebrates Golden Anniversary with Ford Motor Company

FOSTORIA, OHIO – Reineke Ford, Inc. of Fostoria celebrates 50 years of partnership with Ford Motor Company. On August 24, 1967, Mr. William F. Reineke, Sr. was welcomed into the Ford Motor Company in Fostoria, and Reineke Ford has been selling new Ford vehicles since that date.

 

William F. Reineke, Sr., took a great risk with the support of his wife, Corrine, and moved his very young family from Toledo, to Fostoria, to fulfill a dream of owning an auto dealership. He moved there in 1960 and first acquired a Buick Oldsmobile franchise. In 1967, he acquired the Ford franchise from Willis B. Hakes, who was an original dealer approved by Henry Ford in 1913.

 

“Bill” Reineke, Sr. worked very hard at pursuing the American Dream and raising 10 children in Fostoria. He was involved in many organizations and led by example.

 

Thomas Reineke, who is now the dealer principle and has been working at this dealership in various positions for the past 40 years, starting with the wash rack, service, parts, sales and today, management as President. Tom Reineke and wife, Stacey, are proud to have raised their children, Laura and Alex, through Reineke Ford’s community involvement in Fostoria.

 

Other Reineke Family members are involved in the management of Reineke Family Dealerships., including the next generation, who are pursing the example of the founder.

 

Today, Reineke Family Dealerships has Ford & Lincoln franchises located in Tiffin (Reineke’s Tiffin Ford Lincoln), Findlay (Reineke Ford Lincoln of Findlay), and Lima (Reineke Ford Lincoln of Lima) along with Reineke Ford, in Fostoria.  “Our long standing relationship defines why Ford continues to be our flagship brand,” said Tom Reineke, President, “from stated values to quality products we’re proud to be a part of the Ford family.”

 

Reineke Family Dealerships, founded in 1960 by William F. Reineke, Sr., is a family owned organization that will sell approximately 7,500 cars in 2017 and employs approximately 450 full and part-time employees.  Known for strong customer loyalty and high sales and service ratings, Reineke Family Dealerships operates in Fostoria, Tiffin, Lima, Upper Sandusky, Findlay, North Baltimore, and sells Ford, Lincoln, Nissan, Honda, Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and RAM vehicles.

 

A customer open house is planned for Friday, September 22nd, starting at 2:00PM and Saturday, September 23rd, at Reineke Ford, 1303 Perrysburg Road, Fostoria.
