Auto Sales Co was unofficially founded in 1929, when the company began importing American cars such as Buicks and Chevrolets, as well as Austins and Willys. Following the end of World War II and in light of the steady growth of the automotive industry at the time, the company made contact with Renault of France to import Renault to Malta, which was followed by a deal with Daimler AG of Germany.
The company was formally registered as Auto Sales Co Limited in 1963 and, 16 years later, Auto Sales Limited moved from its premises in Gzira, which it had used since 1953, to its new complex, which remains the Auto Sales Limited headquarters to this day.
Today, the company is managed by
Ms Theresa Testaferrata Moroni Viani, Ms Karen Sammut and Ms Lynn Vincenti Kind the daughters of the late Mr Richard Vincenti Kind assisted by Mr Mario Xuereb as Director and Mr Etienne M. Attard as General Manager.
