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.
