Our operation started in 1991 with the selling of QMI PTFE engine treatments . With innovative marketing QMI went on to become the number one selling engine treatment in Jamaica. Since then we have introduced several other car care products including JETGO and MASTER GUARD. In 1994 with the liberalisation of motor vehicle imports, we saw an opportunity in that sector and decided to explore it. In 1995 we were among the first to be registered by government as a certified auto dealer.
Today we are one of the leading dealers with highly trained mechanics and technicians and have facilities, which are among the best in the industry. Our location at 2 Sandringham Ave. features a one stop shop for all our services this includes, car sales, an auto care supermarket and car servicing, Our directors are well experienced and widely trained. We are active members of the Jamaica Used Car Dealers Association of which our chairman Andrew Jackson served as Vice President and President.
