Over 80 Years of keeping Sydney Moving
Suttons have been keeping Syndey moving for over 80 years. That is over 80 years of an iconic household name synonymous with exceptional service, professionalism, innovation, and of course, vehicles.
Since 1943 when Suttons was established to service Australian Navy vehicles, and to today, offering servicing, parts, luxury cars, trucks and more, the family business behind “Sydney Trust Suttons' has grown exponentially. In the late 1940’s, Suttons purchased Suttons Motors Homebush to begin selling Bedford Trucks, and by the time TV had made its way to Australian shores in 1956, Suttons had grown a total of three car dealership sites spanning the reach of Sydney. By the mid 1970’s, Suttons was now well on its way to becoming the country’s largest Holden dealer in the 1980’s with five locations across Sydney.
Over the following years Suttons continued to grow, serving Sydney and becoming home to all your favourite vehicle brands. Today, Suttons is owned and operated the Suttons family and continues to offer the same excellent brand and service experience as a family dealer as Fred did back in 1943. Suttons has been through a lot and experienced the many changes and challenges of the 20th and 21st centuries, but its main core values have remained the same over the decades.
Suttons have kept Sydney families and businesses moving for over 80 years and counting.
Think Auto, Think Suttons.
