Company History

About Vorderman Volkswagen
    Vorderman Motors Werks, Inc. was founded in 1990 by Reg Vorderman. With a background as a technician specializing on European cars followed by eight years as Service Manager at a Mercedes-Benz dealership, he envisioned an independent service business that would provide a new level of service to owners of highline European cars. Reg opened the new venture on Ley Road in Fort Wayne with a staff comprised of his wife Connie and three experienced service personnel.

The need for such a customer-oriented service business was confirmed by the immediate response of European car owners in and around Fort Wayne. As the business grew and staff was added, another customer need was recognized, and the company added a small inventory of pre-owned highline cars. Because the Vorderman cars were hand-picked and thoroughly inspected before sale, the company soon gained a reputation for quality pre-owned highline cars.

The business changed dramatically in 1998. The Volkswagen franchise was acquired to add the dimension of new car sales, and the expanded business moved to a brand new 20,000 square foot facility on Cross Creek Boulevard. The addition of a new car business soon resulted in Service Department growth that would require another expansion in order to satisfy customer demand.

In November, 2003 a second full-service facility was opened on Cross Creek Boulevard. That 10,000 square foot building was dedicated to highline vehicle service, and was named Vorderman Motor Werks. The original Cross Creek location became dedicated to the Volkswagen business and was renamed Vorderman Volkswagen.

In 2008, the second facility expanded its service to include all make vehicles, with an emphasis still on imported cars. To reflect this new direction, this operation was renamed Vorderman Import Service.

With each dealership has its own focus and management staff, both are committed to the original Vorderman business philosophy.

The parent corporation is Vorderman Motor Werks, Inc, and continues under the leadership of Reg Vorderman.
