In 1992 Joao Da Costa and Tony Pattichides embarked on a venture, opening a used car parts dealer specialising in Volkswagen spare parts. What started with just a few vehicles being dismantled grew to a point where sufficient accident damaged vehicles could not be found. This led to them sourcing new parts, not an easy task in Africa. Fortunately, that didn’t stop them, and they started importing parts from German Manufacturers. The founders are actively involved in the day – to – day operations of the company. Their insight and expertise has enabled Goldwagen to evolve into a significant participant in the vehicle replacement parts industry.
