Haverhill, Massachusetts | October 19, 2018 — Jaffarian Volvo is excited to celebrate 60 years of selling and servicing the Volvo brand in the greater New England area. Jaffarian Volvo is one of only four multigenerational dealerships among the 295 dealerships across the United States to have the original family owners for 60 or more years. In line with Jaffarian’s commitment to delivering the highest quality of service, Jaffarian Volvo was awarded the Volvo Dealer Excellence Award in both 2016 and 2017; and were one of only 40 Volvo dealers out of a total of 300 nationwide that earned this prestigious award for meeting and exceeding both Volvo sales and customer satisfaction goals.
“On behalf of Volvo Cars USA, it is both a pleasure and honor to present Jaffarian Volvo with this very special and exclusive distinction”, shared Thomas Caza, Senior Manager Dealer Network, Volvo Cars USA. “The Jaffarian family’s unwavering commitment to the community, their customers, and to the Volvo brand has endured for over 60 years. We truly value their partnership and wish the Jaffarian family continued success as we recognize this outstanding achievement.”
The Jaffarian’s have been in automotive business in Haverhill for 80 years, since 1938, when they opened up their first gas and service station on River Street. In 1958, Richard Jaffarian, in his efforts to choose a high-quality car to establish a dealership — went to the library to research and found Volvo cars — a brand worthy of the Jaffarian name. Richard sought out a leading edge vehicle know for innovation and safety, and subsequently choose to sell the Volvo brand. In 1962, using the same vision and insight, the Jaffarian’s added the Toyota brand to their offerings.
“The Jaffarian family is proud to serve New England’s Volvo needs for the last 60 years with best price for the value and our commitment to providing customer delight”, said Gary Jaffarian, President and CEO of Jaffarian Volvo Toyota. “Gavin and I are proud to carry on the Jaffarian legacy and serve the community with the Volvo line — known worldwide for safety and reliability.”
