It’s being the best we can be. It’s keeping our word so that people can trust what we say and have confidence in our honesty and integrity. It’s serving our customers in the best way possible because we sincerely care about their safety and their complete satisfaction with their Lazarus experience.” Colin D. Lazarus – Managing Director Lazarus Motor Company

In 1957 Reggie Lazarus started the R. Lazarus & Son (Pty) Ltd Company selling used cars in Bronkhorstspruit and today Lazarus Motor Company is the biggest Black Owned Dealership in Africa.

The company grew from strength to strength and in 1961 obtained the Ford franchise for tractors.            The natural progression into the Ford brand of vehicles has resulted in Lazarus Motor Company being the biggest Ford Dealer in Southern Africa.

After being in Bronkhorstspruit for 35 years, Colin Lazarus made the decision in 1980 to move the company to Lyttleton and the company became known as Lazarus Ford.

In 1993 Lazarus Auto opened, in the then Verwoerdburg, selling Mazdas and Mitsubishi Pajeros.

Due to an emergence of luxury vehicles, Lazarus & Son (Pty) Ltd obtained the Jaguar Franchise and opened in Menlyn. In 2000 Jaguar moved to the new facility and became known as Jaguar Centurion.

In 2000 a new company was formed and Lazarus Motor Company (Pty) Ltd came into its own.

In 2001 Lazarus Motor Company acquired the Land Rover Franchise form Ford Motor Company and Land Rover Centurion opened its doors in April 2000

In 2008 Volvo became part of the Lazarus Family and in July 2009 Lazarus Motor Company acquired the Kia Centurion Franchise.

The Ford and Mazda divisions have won the Dealer of The Year award for six years in a row since 2004 due to the professional service rendered by car sales, parts and the service department

Lazarus Motor Company’s progress and success depends largely on team work, effort and enthusiasm of each employee.
