LAYTON — The Young Automotive Group will add a new dealership to their company with the purchase of Barber Brothers Ford, in Morgan.
The new dealership will run under the name of Young Ford.
After deciding to retire, Barber Brothers Ford selected the Young Automotive Group as buyers based on their shared business ethics. Both Barber Brothers and the Young Automotive Group share a rich history in Morgan and share the same passion for customer service and community involvement.
The Young Automotive Group started in 1924 as Olsen Oldsmobile Chevrolet in Morgan. By 1925, Olsen had started a Chevrolet franchise, which eventually moved to its current location in Layton during the 1970s.
In 1982, the Young family took an opportunity to purchase the Chevrolet franchise and in 1987 changed the name to Young Chevrolet.
According to a release from the Young Automotive Group, employees from Barber Brothers Ford will be welcomed into the Young Automotive Group family of more than 300 employees.
“Young Ford will continue to support and enrich the community of Morgan through local events and charitable organizations,” the release states. “For many years, Barber Brothers Ford has supported the community with local events. They have witnessed and helped the growth of Morgan County and its residents. The Barber Brothers are proud of what they have built and are delighted to have the Young Automotive Group continue their tradition of community involvement.”
