Where We Came From
The three Taig brothers were good at making roads but considered too "uneducated" to make a success of running a business. That was the answer Alf, Norm and Ron Taig gave to International Harvester in 1945 when the company asked them to take on its Shepparton dealership. After all, they had all left school by their 14th birthday and their experience was limited to making roads and transporting farm produce to market.
But International Harvester's executives wouldn't take no for an answer - they kept on asking for 18 months until in 1947 the three young men realized that between them they did have the ambition, skills and determination to take this step into the unknown. They based themselves in Shepparton and bought the old Taig Brothers site in High St.
Where We Are Now
Led today by John Taig, Alf's son, the business has grown. The company now operates a dealership at our current Wheeler Street premises in Shepparton.
We have just added six bays increasing our bays to nine including a 25 metre service pit in our service area. Today Taig Bros employs 30 people, who are all highly qualified in their field and are customer care trained and focused.
We have installed new gates to our premises to allow for easy B-Double access.
The company is a monument to the ability of the family to build unswerving loyalty among both their customers and their employees.
Where We Will Be In The Future
We have now been in business over 60 years so why not come and see us at Taig Bros.
