ABOUT THE GROUP
For more than five decades, the Mayer Group has leveraged a far-reaching vision and a solid,
value-oriented management to become one of the trailblazers in the Israeli automobile market.
Established in 1967 by the late Mayer Kass, Mayer's Cars and Trucks Ltd.
began as the exclusive importer of Volvo products to Israel. Beginning with cars, the company
gradually added trucks, buses, engines and heavy mechanical machinery.
Over the years the company has developed an advanced sales and customer service network with
a logistics support system and a range of complementary services such as leasing, trade-in,
insurance, funding and more.
During the 90s, the company acquired other top brand names such as Honda (cars, motorbikes and Power Products), Renault trucks, Zhongtong Buses and LYNK & CO Electric mobility.
In addition to its vehicle imports, Mayer acquired other companies with similar or complementary interests. Together they now form the leading vehicle group in Israel: Hertz Car Rental,
Auto Center (second-hand cars), Kavim (public transport), Merkavim (bus chassis),
Kogol Unitrade (Michelin tire importers), Mayer Ramot insurance services,
Israel Phoenix and others. The Mayer Group is also the sole owner of Maccabi Haifa Football Club
and a number of overseas companies active in real estate and public transport.
