Vaden Automotive is celebrating 50 years in business and held the grand re-opening of Dan Vaden Chevrolet and Vaden Cadillac Savannah last Friday, April 6th at 9393 Abercorn Street. Mayor Eddie De- Loach along with members from the Savannah Area Chamber of Commerce, local dignitaries and the leadership from Vaden including President, Jane Vaden Thacher were in attendance.
“This year we celebrate 50 years in automotive service to our community.
My father, Dan Vaden, developed a legacy that I’m proud to continue,” stated Thacher. “Through his leadership, he taught us the importance of our customers and reminded us that ultimately, they are responsible for our success.”
After a full demolition and rebuild, Dan Vaden Chevrolet and Vaden Cadillac Savannah is now a state-of-the-art facility that includes a modern showroom with multiple waiting areas, 28 service and four detailing bays. In addition, the campus houses six body shop bays, two paint booths and four medium duty truck bays.
Thacher added, “As our business has grown over the years, it has been important to me to continue my father’s core business philosophies. We call it “The Vaden Way,” and it is something much more than a slogan. It’s how we treat people, both our employees and customers.”
