When she founded FEN Enterprises in 1984, Elsa Mauer Nicodemus had little idea that her fledgling Cadillac restoration parts company would develop into the world’s foremost restoration provider of America’s premier luxury automobile.
Rapid growth led to necessary expansion and before long she found herself converting a former health club building into a state-of-the-art auto restoration facility.
As her business grew, she began to receive personal recognition, some of it due to the fact that she was a woman who reached the pinnacle of a male-dominated industry. Prestigious regional lifestyle magazine Hudson Valley published a feature article about her and dubbed Elsa Mauer Nicodemus as the Cadillac Queen.
She now owns and runs Cadillac Parts & Restoration (CPR) which is housed in a brand-new restoration facility located in Poughkeepsie, NY. Those classic Cadillac owners interested in world-class work being performed on their car can visit her new website at www.cprforyourcar.com
