Creating new jobs in the Bay Ridge and Sunset Park areas is one of Gary Floms expectations.
Flom is the president and CEO of the recently opened Bay Ridge Ford Dealership which just opened up a service center at the Brooklyn Army Terminal, 152 58th Street.
The service center whose renovation cost $5.6 million — held its ribbon cutting ceremony on March 21, with Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz and Miss USA, Nana Meriwether, joining in on the celebration over a two-hour lunch.
This completes our dealership, Flom explained of the service center which, for the past two years, had been relocating, constantly working out of temporary services, even a trailer, Flom added.
Not only is the service center the newest one in New York City, but its also the only one of its kind to accommodate most large commercial Diesel vehicles, police cars, ambulances, buses and even trucks. All in all, its one shop with many different shops, Flom said.
Sixty jobs are planned to be generated for the area in the upcoming months thanks to the new service center.
We are very happy to be part of the Bay Ridge community, Flom concluded, adding that hes grateful for the customers the dealership has acquired so far, and the ones he hopes to see come in through the door in the near future.
Bay Ridge Fords showroom is located at 612 86th Street.
