Auto/Mate Announces West Coast Expansion

New customer support and installation teams in Arizona will accommodate growing demand from auto dealers nationwide

Albany, N.Y. – January 14, 2018Auto/Mate Dealership Systems announced today it will open a new office in Chandler, AZ in late Q2 of 2019. The expansion to the west coast is in response to the rapid growth Auto/Mate has experienced since a planned acquisition by CDK Global fell through in March 2018. Since that announcement, pent-up demand for Auto/Mate's dealership management system (DMS) by auto dealers has spurred double-digit growth in new orders and installations.


“Although we've had a record year, we are growing the company in a controlled manner to ensure that our dealers continue to receive the top-rated support we're known for," said Mike Esposito, president and CEO of Auto/Mate. "That said, we're already in 49 states and with increased demand in the midwestern and western regions, it's time we had a presence there."


The west coast location will allow Auto/Mate to leverage Arizona's talent pool. The Chandler office will be staffed primarily with customer support and installation teams, and Auto/Mate anticipates hiring 15 to 20 people by years' end. In addition, at least seven employees at the Albany, NY office have volunteered to transfer to Arizona.


"The thing that really drives us is our culture. Our customers, vendors and employees all love Auto/Mate's culture, so that's an important priority for us," said Esposito. "Having a team of current employees relocate will help transfer that culture to the new office."


In New York's capital region, Auto/Mate has been recognized as a "Best Place to Work" nine years straight, and a "Top Workplace" eight years in a row. "Our philosophy is simple," said Esposito. "If you have happy employees, you have happy customers."
