Toyota is Turning 60
Toyota is celebrating 60 years of operations in Australia with 2019 marking the 60th anniversary of the first official imports of Toyota vehicles into the country by Thiess Toyota.
In 1959, Thiess, a subsidiary of construction company Thiess Holdings, became the official Queensland distributor for Toyota commercial vehicles – making Australia the first official export market for the Japanese brand. Following its appointment as Queensland distributor, Thiess Toyota moved quickly to establish dealerships to service its growing customer base with one of the first being Rockhampton Car Sales, owned by George Jamieson. This business is now known as Ian Weigh Toyota.
