(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) The transformation is complete for a St. Joseph car dealership.

Anderson Kia-Mitsubishi celebrated a new building Thursday.

Anderson Auto Group bought the dealership from Cecil Myers in March of last year.

They began renovating the facility on South Belt Highway in January.

The extra space comes with a larger inventory and more employees as well, taking the staff from eight to thirty.

General Manager Bob Bledsoe says he hopes to make a big impact with the Kia brand and beyond.

"We now have a state-of-the-art facility with the service department, which we can work on all types of cars, all makes and models. We're really excited about what's going on at this location," said Bledsoe."

The Chamber of Commerce joined Anderson-Kia for a ribbon cutting to celebrate the renovation project.
