The foundation, on which the Mandilas Group was built in the 1940s, was the provision for a wide range of first-class internationally renowned products and services, used in all spheres of life.
In Nigeria, the name Mandilasbecame synonymous with Volkswagen vehicles, since Mandilas first introduced Volkswagen into the country in 1953 as sole importers and distributors. Having popularised Volkswagen vehicles through the nationwide network of sales and service facilities of its Motors Division, Mandilas made a vital contribution to Nigeria's industrialisation by initiating the setting up of the “Volkswagen of Nigeria” assembly plant near Lagos .
Following the closure of the Volkswagen factory, the Division's activities have changed and we are now predominantly
concerned in the sales and service of Toyota vehicles. The Motors Division is a successful part of the Company and has recently had the Lagos Island Workshop accredited to the Toyota quality system. We are now preparing other branches in the country to meet this requirement
