Founded by George Trotman as a used-car dealership in Abbotsford, B.C. in 1971, Trotman Auto Group (TAG) is a second-generation family business success. In 1977, George Trotman acquired Langley Chrysler, with son Mike Trotman succeeding him in 1998. Brothers Mitch and Brad Trotman also joined the company in the late 90s and together the three sons set out to establish a new vision and strategy for the company.

Today, TAG has over 460 employees and operates nine automotive dealerships in the Lower Mainland, Fraser Valley, Kootenays and Vancouver Island and has grown from a single point, mid-sized Chrysler dealership to a nationally recognized dealer group in Canada.

The company attributes its success to an exceptional team, investing in communities, valuing client relationships and developing synergy with strategic partners.

Our vision has always been to lead the industry by creating a vibrant culture, an engaged team and exceptional employment and client experience.
