Adams said the building took a little more than a year to complete.

Adams, a Carmel resident, oversees the six franchises on the grounds in Carmel and the Kia of Fishers.

There will be approximately 300 automobiles, including 11 different models, on-site.

Adams said there will be 24 employees. The dealership will be open 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

Napleton Automotive Group started in 1931 and has 57 stores in the dealership group, Adams said.

“We’re the seventh-largest privately owned automobile (group) in the United States,” said Adams, who has been with the group for 12 1/2 years. “’Second-to-none in 1931’ is our slogan.”

The other dealers on the Carmel compound include Hyundai, Kia and Italian Imports.
