Welcome to the world of Lindsay Saker – an industry leader in South Africa. Lindsay Saker has a rich heritage of taking P.R.I.D.E. to the next level.
This heritage has been ingrained in us from our very beginning, which was actually over 115 years ago! In 1902 two brothers, Charles and DH Saker started DH Saker Limited. The name of the company was changed to Saker Motor Corporation when Jack Mincer took control of the company. In 1957, The Sakers Finance and Investment Company merged with GK Lindsay and the name Lindsay Saker was coined.
Over 60 years later, we have become THE household name whenever the Volkswagen or Audi names are thought of. As a division of the JSE Listed Imperial Group, our clients and staff take comfort in knowing they are in safe and capable hands at all times.
