Central Coast automotive dealership, Brian Hilton Motor Group, has achieved a half century in business, and is set to celebrate the golden jubilee in fine style.
From humble beginnings in 1967, Brian Hilton Pty Ltd was registered when Brian Hilton set up his dealership in Wyoming.
Half a century later, it’s still a family business with Brian’s son Josh now in the driving seat.
Today, Brian Hilton Motor Group is the Coast’s biggest new and used car dealership, with a portfolio of five brands across six sites, a motor sports operation at Lisarow and an off road accessories store.
According to dealer principal, Mr Josh Hilton, the milestone is a testament to the business acumen of his father who had an unwavering commitment to the region’s motoring needs.
“Brian Hilton Motor Group’s mission has always been to be a business admired and respected by its own staff, our community and our peers.
“To be celebrating 50 years of business is a clear demonstration that we are achieving our goals,” Mr Hilton said.
“It’s incredible to see how much we’ve grown, even just in the past 10 years, with the inclusion of new brands and a state of the art body and paint facility.
“I don’t think my father would have ever imagined the footprint the organisation has today when he first set up in the 60s.
“We continue to look at new ways to meet the motoring needs of the Central Coast, and I’m excited to say during our golden jubilee we will be announcing a range of new services.”
The group has also grown beyond the Central Coast, with the acquisition of Sydney Motor Group in Alexandria and a stake in Mid Coast Automotive Group in Forster and Taree.
The group is also giving back to the community next week to help raise money for the Leukaemia Foundation’s annual World’s Greatest Shave fundraiser, with Brian Hilton’s Drive for a Cure
The day consists of a mystery tour taking participants on a scenic drive around the Central Coast with clues along the way, leading them to a barbeque lunch at the North Gosford dealership.
The team hopes to raise $4,000 on the day.
“Giving back to the local community is something we take great pride in at Brian Hilton Motor Group.
“We understand the importance of supporting those who support us, and this is just one initiative along with local sports sponsorships and our involvement with Central Coast schools that we will undertake this year,” Mr Hilton added.
“It’s been a great 50 years for Brian Hilton Motor Group, and we look forward to being the big local for many more years to come.”
