Tooley Imports is one of the biggest independently owned parts distributors in the country – but we started from humble beginnings as a small family business in the 1960s.
We opened our doors in 1968 from our family-owned service station selling second-hand Volkswagen parts. The demand for our second-hand parts began to grow to the point that our only option was to innovate and start importing new parts. To do this we imported a 20-foot container of Volkswagen mufflers and clutch components; the first of thousands of imports to come.
To continue to meet the increasing need for aftermarket parts, we quickly outgrew the space we were in and purchased our own premises in Hornsby, in Sydney’s North. As we’ve continued to grow, we purchased the properties around us, and were in Hornsby until we sold the property to move into a larger and more accessible warehouse in Frenchs Forest in 2017, where we still are today. We are one of the largest importers and distributors of after-market motor vehicle parts in Australia.
Throughout our 50 years of growth and experience, we have built a wide and extensive global network of European distributors and suppliers. We have long standing relationships with both suppliers and clients and continue to grow to meet their needs. We have become industry leaders for European car parts in Australia, and experts in German manufactured vehicles. Our unparalleled experience and know-how makes us the number one choice for spare and aftermarket parts.
