We are Eagers Automotive
Eagers’ origins date back to 1913 when Edward Eager and his son, Frederic, founded their family automotive business, E.G. Eager & Son Ltd, which continues today as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Eagers Automotive Limited.
Crowds flock to see Fred Eager and Whitey in Toowoomba on 5 July 1918 after his attempt to set a new record from Brisbane. From the Treasury Building to the Toowoomba Post Office took 2 hours 7½ minutes, the time recorded by a watch in a sealed packet carried by the driver and opened on arrival. Even by then, the 1912 Overland had over 140,000 miles on the clock. At centre right, in a flat cap, is Wally Webb, Fred Eager’s constant offsider and expert motor mechanic.
After establishing the first motor vehicle assembly plant in Queensland in 1922, the business secured the distributorship of General Motors’ products in Queensland and northern New South Wales in 1930 and listed as a public company in 1957 under the name Eagers Holdings Limited.
A merger in 1992 with the listed A.P. Group Limited saw the addition of a number of new franchises and our name change to A.P. Eagers Limited. Further new franchises and geographic diversification followed.
In 2019 we celebrated the amalgamation of AP Eagers Limited (APE) and Automotive Holdings Group (AHG) coming together to become one connected entity now named Eagers Automotive Limited – and as a result have entered into our next chapter with a sense of purpose and as a stronger, and united team striving toward our shared common goal of success.
