As we reach the start of National Small Business Week, we are excited to welcome the support of FCA US LLC. Independent We Stand is proud to announce that FCA US LLC has joined STIHL Inc. and PPG Pittsburgh Paints as the newest partner and co-sponsor of the movement. Through this new partnership, Independent We Stand will work closely with FCA US LLC and the company’s BusinessLink® dealer network to connect independent business owners with their local BusinessLink® dealer that is specifically equipped to work with small businesses.
FCA US LLC has increased its focus on helping small business owners through the launch of fiatchryslerautomobiles.com, a resource that features “The Working Blog,” with stories and interviews from real independent business owners and experts on a wide range of business-related topics. The site also helps owners determine which vehicle is the best fit for their small business using a vehicle selection slider that provides easy comparison on important consideration topics like fuel economy, cargo space, towing, passenger capacity and more.
FCA US LLC has also demonstrated a commitment to small businesses through its BusinessLink network, a free program designed to connect small business owners with a local FCA US LLC dealer who can meet their unique needs. Business owners may access this free membership program with proof of business ownership at any BusinessLink dealer. The program offers benefits such as specialized in-dealership small business sales and service personnel, extended service and repair hours, free shuttle service, and more.
“The independent dealers who sell and service FCA US LLC vehicles are the foundation of our company, and our commercial dealer network is committed to helping small businesses stay on the road to success,” said Michael Ring, Head of Small Business Sales and Operations, FCA US LLC. “Whether you’re buying one vehicle or fifteen for your business, we’re going to go the distance to save you time and money, reducing costs to your bottom line.”
“FCA US LLC’ support of Independent We Stand will help both FCA US LLC's commercial dealers and the independent businesses who rely on them for their transportation solutions to build a bigger voice in the small business community,” Ring said.
The support of national manufacturers such as FCA US LLC and STIHL Inc. make our work to help independent businesses possible. Our free resources for small businesses help thousands of restaurants, retailers, landscapers and more promote the value they bring to their communities. We’re excited about this sponsorship and thrilled about the support FCA US LLC is providing to the bug local movement.
With the help of FCA US LLC’s BusinessLink dealer network, we created a special version of the “Small Business. Big Impact.” video for National Small Business Week. Please watch and share the video to help spread the word about the huge impact of small business.
