Family Owned & Operated

UF3 Auto Group

Who is the UF3 Auto Group?

The UF3 Auto Group is a family owned and operated dealer group in Alberta, Canada. Doug and Ross Ulmer created the Ulmer Auto Group forty years ago with dealerships in Alberta and Saskatchewan. The UF3 Auto Group is a subset of the larger Ulmer Auto Group. It consists of dealerships owned by Doug Ulmer, his family and managing partners. His daughter Andrea Ulmer is the Chief Operating Officer and oversees retail operations for all UF3 stores.

We are a growing group that has been incredibly successful while managing to keep small town flavor. All of our dealerships value long term relationships with staff and customers alike. We have chosen to operate in small to mid sized cities where we are able to make an impact within the communities we live. We pride ourselves on providing rewarding careers in various fields with an emphasis on our group promoting from within.
