What way are Appolo 11, the first Woodstock, Nixon Doctrine, Internet, and UkrAVTO alike? First, it’s the date – 1969.

In the late 1960s, personal cars ceased to be a luxury and grew readily available. This is when Zaporozhets economy car that got numerous pet names and had been extremely popular for decades, was born.

But! In 1969, when the first human stepped over the lunar surface and computers learned to communicate, the Central office of maintenance and repair was founded. The office managed seven regional production departments and over fifty service stations. This organization is considered to be the forbearer of the company known as Ukrainian Automobile Corporation.

Over the years, customer preferences and needs have changed, while systems and even countries transformed. 

In 1989, amid global changes, the Office was reorganized into Autoservice Ukrainian Leasing Manufacturing Group. It unites 7 regional production departments, 25 regional facilities, 105 service stations, and 90 auto parts sales shops.

The next few years became a critical stage in the history of the 1/6 Earth's upland.  

Ukraine achieved its independence and nationhood. And systemic changes have affected the national auto giant as well. 1992, the company was transformed into Ukrainian Automobile Corporation JSC, briefly named UkrAVTO.

The modern age requires new business and customer solutions. With the direct involvement of UkrAVTO, Ukrainians get an opportunity to purchase modern personal vehicles from global automotive brands. As a result, the first official Toyota and Nissan cars appear in Ukraine thanks to the efforts of the UkrAVTO Corporation.

A company that sets itself ambitious plans must have a partner who feels cars as nobody else in the world. And they have actually invented and patented it. This year, UkrAVTO Corporation becomes an exclusive importer of Mercedes-Benz cars and the official representative office of Daimler AG in Ukraine.

Over time, customer requirements have also changed. And the company establishes two joint ventures: Autosummit LTD, the first official distributor and the largest dealer of Toyota in Ukraine, with Sumitomo Corporation, and"Autocentre Holosiivskyi, the first official distributor and the largest dealer of Nissan in the country, with Marubene Corporation.

The Corporation rapidly expands its network and car product range to meet customer needs. Ukrainian buyers can purchase commercial vehicles, buses, and new foreign cars. At the same time, a network of car dealerships and service companies is developing.

The Zaporizhzhia Automobile Building Plan, the flagship of the Ukrainian automotive industry and the full-cycle (from sheet metal to the test track) car producer, passes into the control of the UkrAVTO Corporation.

The potential of the Ukrainian enterprise, designed to produce about 150,000 cars annually, receives a worthy assessment from potential world-famous partners: models from the GM DAT and Opel AG concerns appear on the assembly lines at the Zaporizhzhia Automobile Building Plan.

The "Trans Capital" company was established and eventually reorganized into the international forwarding company "ASKA Expedition" with its own fleet of vehicles.

The "Ukravtoleasing" company was established.

The Ukrainian automobile market is growing and developing. And customers need affordable cars. The UkrAVTO Corporation agrees on the distribution and subsequent production of Chery brand cars to ensure that the majority of Ukrainians who want to have the opportunity to get behind the wheel of their new car. Chery cars are quickly becoming popular in Ukraine and remain in vogue for a long time.

The "Express Insurance" company was established.

The insurance company "Express Insurance", a part of the UkrAVTO group of companies, gets state registration and the first ten licenses to conduct insurance activities. A network of representative offices begins to form.

Cooperation between UkrAVTO Corporation and Daimler AG is deepening. As a result, the Corporation gains an honorary right to represent Mercedes-Benz in the countries of Central Asia. The first country to launch an official Mercedes-Benz dealership is Kazakhstan.

The global financial crisis forces many to adjust their plans, and large businesses are no exception. But, as they say, any stagnation is not only about losses but also about opportunities. Due to such a way of looking at things, UkrAVTO successfully establishes a partner relationship with the South Korean automaker KIA and becomes its distributor.

«Express Insurance» becomes an associate member of the Motor Transport Insurance Bureau of Ukraine.

The UkrAVTO Corporation is awarded the status of the official importer from two Italian brands at once. Showrooms that present Maserati cars and Ducati superbikes open their doors to Ukrainian customers.
