Who We Are
From humble beginnings
From a modest start in 1992, Goldwagen has evolved into a globally recognised automotive parts distributor and franchise group. Supported by a state-of-the-art distribution warehouse located in Centurion, Gauteng in South Africa. Goldwagen operates across southern Africa through over 100 franchised outlets, supplying cost-effective, high-quality automotive parts to the aftermarket spares industry.
Goldwagen’s franchise stores offer an extensive range of over 36,000 high-quality parts to mechanical workshops, wholesale outlets, DIY enthusiasts, retailers, body repair shops and directly to the public.
“Quality is not coincidental; it is a consequence of intelligent effort over two decades by our specialist management teams.”
Starting with the distribution of Volkswagen and Audi parts, demand and opportunity soon led to the Group broadening its value proposition to include BMW, Chevrolet, Ford, Hyundai, Jeep, Kia, Land Rover, Mazda, Mini, Mercedes-Benz, Nissan, Opel, Renault, Toyota and Volvo.
The Group enjoys direct supplier agreements and long-standing relationships with most of the original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and aftermarket manufacturers it deals with, enabling it to consistently supply automotive parts of the highest specifications at the best possible price.
To help deliver quality products the Group has more than 350 proud employees that make a tangible difference to the way in which we do business through their efficiency and outstanding customer service. The franchise outlets have more than 1,200 committed employees, delivering exceptional client service daily.
