To maintain inventory, meet sales targets and maximize profits, automotive and equipment dealers need to keep up with innovation, new technology and changing business models. Change extends to the regulatory arena, where previous protections for auto and equipment dealers may be eroding. Dominated in the past by family-owned dealerships, today’s automobile market is more diverse and competitive, with larger industry players projected to continue pursuing acquisitions of smaller dealerships. Still, state regulations, manufacturer franchise agreements and start-up costs continue to be challenges for all operators.
