Ste-Agathe-des-Monts, Quebec – Mercedes-Benz and Smart dealer Franke Sainte-Agathe in Quebec has celebrated the grand opening of its extensively renovated dealership. More than three hundred guests attended the gala event, including Marcus Breitschwerdt, president and CEO of Mercedes-Benz Canada.

The gala included a display of a rare McLaren SLR roadster, a selection of 2010 Mercedes-Benz models, a Smart Brabus edition, and the new E-Class sedan.

The construction project took two years, with extensive efforts taken to make the project as “green” as possible, with protection of a stream on the property and recycling the former structure to end up with a much larger building with reduced energy consumption.

The Franke organization, which has been a Mercedes-Benz dealer since November 1980, also celebrated its second Mercedes-Benz Star dealer award for 2009.
