SERVICING THE HAWKES BAY FOR OVER 60 YEARS
Established in 1957 by Jim Young as a Mobil Fuel retailer and small two bay workshop to cater for the local market gardens and farming community the business expanded over the years, and in the 70s and early 80s was a major dealer for Fiat/Iveco trucks and tractors. We then became the NZ importer for Fiat tractors, with the 4WD variant being very popular with the local farmers.
Dave Schofield joined Jim in the early 90s as a partner. He was one of the many apprentices trained by Young Motors and had worked in Auckland for the previous 12yrs. On his return, a major rebuild of the forecourt took place.
As the heavy truck industry had always been in Jim and Dave's blood, it was decided that the business would re-enter the truck industry. The team were joined by Henry Cowsill as a partner, and over a period added a 6-bay truck workshop and a full length 2-bay drive-through pit workshop, complete with all the required lubrication and brake testing equipment.
