Fox Valley Auto Group

Fox Valley VW logo The Redmond Company was essential to the success of our projects. We first used them for the design and construction of our VW facility in St. Charles, and after that was a huge success, we selected them again for the renovation of our VW facility in Schaumburg. They’ve been an indispensable partner as we’ve worked through VW’s compliance process. Redmond worked with Volkswagen’s architectural representatives to ensure that while we met the brand standards, our needs as a business were not lost. The Redmond team helped to make sure that our processes were considered and the way our dealerships function were incorporated into the buildings’ designs. They’ve done a great job of re-purposing existing spaces to fit our needs, and renovating old spaces to look brand-new. I would highly recommend The Redmond Company to any dealer group who expects and accepts only the best of the best. Redmond delivered on exactly that. – Emir Abinion, Owner & CEO of The Fox Valley Auto Group Check out the projects The Redmond Company has completed for The Fox Valley Auto Group: – Fox Valley Volkswagen – St. Charles, Illinois – Fox Valley Volkswagen – Schaumburg, Illinois
