The Huff Family Story
Born and raised here in the Akron area all of our lives, Duane and I grew up in a small house on the outskirts of Akron.
I began my career in automotive sales at the age of eighteen to support my young family and have been in the car business my whole adult life. I have four beautiful children Ashley, Cody, Nick, Brennan, and a wonderful wife Robin.
Duane attended the University of Akron; he graduated with a
degree in accounting, and opened his own small business. Duane and his wife
Kristalyn have two children, Will and Larissa.
In May of 1992, I started working at Fred Martin Motor Company and had dreams of bringing fresh and creative ideas to the auto business.
My message was clear and simple: make buying quality new and used cars easy, affordable, and offer a large selection. We did this by offering a Written Low Price Guarantee, a return policy, and free used car warranties - a first in the car business. Business was booming, and we set more sales records than any other dealership in Ohio.
In May of 1999, Duane and I joined forces to purchase the dealership from the Martin Family, followed by Fred Martin Nissan on Arlington Road in Green, Fred Martin Fiat on Barber Road in Barberton, and most recently Hyundai of Louisville in neighboring Kentucky.
Together, my brother and I have worked hard to make the Fred Martin name synonymous with value, quality, professionalism, and outstanding customer service.
Our mission is to provide great cars, at great prices, delivered by great people. That's our business, and that's our pledge to you as a member of our community.
Duane and I work at the dealerships everyday; we are hands on and ready to serve our customers in any way possible. We promise to make your shopping experience fun and hassle-free. Life is hard enough, buying a great car shouldn't have to be.
We're the Fred Martin Car Guys, and we know cars!
