Our story began in 1950 when the Catanese family began building a name in the automobile wholesale business that has since become synonymous with excellence. Benjamin Catanese, son of Italian immigrants and veteran of WWII, was a carpenter by trade, but quickly fell in love with the automobile business. He worked day and night, establishing strong roots in the blossoming wholesale industry. He was a pioneer in the business and created markets to trade used cars that never existed before. Ben’s son, Jim, became his understudy (seemingly at birth). He grew up a car guy and took the reigns of the organization from his father in the early 1990’s. Jim turned their wholesale business into a brand name within the industry. Jim’s son, Benjamin Catanese II, later became part of the family corporation and shifted their focus to the new car business. The rest as they say is history and today Volkswagen of Salem County is proudly owned and operated by the Catanese Family.

We continue with the same commitment to quality and service that we honored in 1950. Volkswagen of Salem County is here to help you browse through our new and used vehicles and allow you to experience the world of Volkswagen in the friendliest and most supportive way possible.
