Founded by Harry Coppus Sr. in Fostoria in 1927, the dealership was relocated to Tiffin during the Great Depression in 1933. In 1954, they purchased their first Mercedes-Benz, making them the oldest dealership in the United States still selling the brand.
John Coppus, Harry Sr.’s grandson, started full-time at the dealership in 1980 and took over the family business in the late 1980’s. During his tenure, John has made many improvements to the business, including remodeling and adding to the showrooms, offices and service department. Most recently, in 2014, Coppus began selling the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter line, which included a building expansion and additional training for the service department. Later that year, the dealership also received a 50 Year Dodge Dealer Award. They have also won three Mercedes-Benz “Best of the Best Awards,” one in 2008, 2014 and 2016.
Local auto dealer Coppus Motors recently received a national award from Mercedes-Benz for their 2016 performance:
