Our Story

In 1947, Warren Germain, a retired accountant for Henry Ford, opened the first Germain dealership, a Lincoln franchise in Columbus, Ohio.

The Germain organization has grown significantly since that time and now is comprised of the Germain Automotive Partnership. Owned by Rick Germain and his sons Paul and John, this family of third- and fourth-generation dealers is committed to caring for people, customers, associates, and the community.

In a time when the automotive business is changing rapidly, the Germain team recognizes the need to be at the forefront of that innovation. Its mission, vision, and values foster a culture that both associates and customers can enjoy.

Our Mission and Values

The Germain mission has always been to spread joy through our diverse selection of reliable vehicles. We want to forge a long-lasting relationship with our customers and assist them throughout their driving journey, whether that be through service or sales.

Our goal is to foster a vibrant and inviting atmosphere where our patrons become excited supporters, our team members thrive, our business upholds unwavering ethics, and we spread positivity in our neighborhoods. Our core values are one of the main ways we aim to achieve that vision.


We are welcoming, caring, and respectful to everyone we interact with. We help each other and the community.


We do the right thing, even when nobody is watching. We are a transparent organization that is honest and knowledgeable.


We are available and grateful for our role on a large team. We strive to add value to each department and every customer.


We are a progressive, forward-thinking organization that seeks solutions. We find better ways to serve our customers and each other.


We are passionate about the work we do and the customers we serve.
