Our Story

As a wholly-owned subsidiary of JSE listed Invicta Holdings, Autobax is held to the highest standards of quality and service, and delivers accordingly. The established national footprint incorporates a head office in Johannesburg and branches in Cape Town, Port Elizabeth and Durban.

Internationally recognised as the only exclusive country-wide distributor of the Gates range of automotive timing components, Autobax has been Gates’ preferred South African service provider for over 35 years, in addition to being the exclusive kit packer for Timken products.

Since launching over 50 years ago, Autobax has expanded its basket of automotive parts to include a comprehensive range of timing components as well as bearings and allied products, supplied by leading manufacturers such as MRK, NTN and NSK, among others.

The Autobax legacy of integrity and dedication to its valued clients has been borne out by numerous supplier awards for excellence in quality and service. For a trusted partner in premium automotive solutions for Sub-Saharan Africa, look no further than AUTOBAX.
