THE PEOPLE YOU CAN ALWAYS COUNT ON.

Originally a family business formed in 1945, Ontime Automotive Ltd has established itself as the premier worldwide automotive transport provider to prestige motor manufacturers and high net worth individuals. Given Ontime’s position in the automotive landscape, The Bidvest Group, a South African services, trading and distribution group purchased 100% of the shareholding in 2004. Having carried out a review of its businesses around the world Bidvest decided that Ontime, along with several other group companies no longer suited their business model going forward. Consequently, in December 2020 the business was sold to J&J Brinklow Holdings Ltd, a company that is owned by the descendants of the original business founders.

The shareholders of J&J Brinklow Holdings Ltd have a very active role in the business with day to day operations overseen by majority shareholder Justin Brinklow. With a particular accent on business transparency and quality it is the Shareholders and Directors vision that success will be achieved by having the ambition to be the best at what we do and inspiring a reputation of quality, performance, innovation and dependability.
