UTICA, N.Y. — Carbone Auto Group announced that it will celebrate the formal opening of its new collision center and commercial fleet division building on Wednesday, June 13, with the Greater Utica Chamber of Commerce.

The ceremony will be held at the company’s location at 5718 Horatio St. in North Utica at 5:30 p.m., according to a news release from the chamber of commerce.

The collision center offers a variety of services such as glass repair, paint jobs, and dent repair. The 22,000-square-foot building holds 25 bays, including prep deck, inspection, and dustless prep areas, per the release. It also features 40-foot paint booths, according to Carbone’s LinkedIn page — large enough for tractor trailers and motorhomes.

The fleet and commercial sales department is housed in 1,700 square feet of the new building, allowing for offices and conference rooms in addition to a parking lot for the new and used vehicles that the location sells.

Carbone Auto Group was founded in 1929 and has remained a family-owned business, according to its LinkedIn page. It is now a division of Lithia Motors, Inc.

Carbone offers 15 different franchises: BMW, Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, GMC, Ford, Honda, Hyundai, Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram, Nissan, Subaru, and Toyota. It has dealerships in Yorkville, North Utica, and Troy, New York, plus Bennington, Vermont.
