Grappone Automotive Group has been a family owned and operated business since 1924. Fourth generation steward Amanda Grappone Osmer is determined to lead the industry with a business that adapts and innovates to keep up with whatever comes its way.

 

Grappone has created a unique culture that is truly second to none. Grappone has roughly four times the national average of women in its sales force, and with a strong belief in sustainability, many investments have been made to help lessen the business’s carbon footprint. This includes a LEED-certified Toyota facility, solar-powered electric vehicle charging stations, and energy conserving LED bulbs.

Grappone transitioned to Negotiation Free Sales in 2013, and is once again leading the way with the implementation of The Grappone Express Way, a shopping experience that gives you the ability to shop and buy 100% online. Without ever having to step foot onto the lot, you can shop our entire inventory, evaluate your trade with a smart device, and secure financing! This will not only help to save your time, it also helps reduce emissions from unnecessary driving back and forth to the dealership in order to complete the transaction. Once everything is confirmed, we will deliver your vehicle right to you. We invite you to reimagine the way you buy a car.

No additional paved parking areas were created to help limit runoff into the bordering Turkey and Merrimack Rivers.

  • Electric Car Charging Station: Solar-powered, electric car charging stations were installed to further encourage the use of green technology.

  • Carpool Parking: 14 preferred carpool parking spots were designated to encourage ride sharing amongst employees and customers alike.
