The Jacob Story

Since 1932

Herman 'Harry' August Jacob was born on May 18, 1899.

Harry began working as a clerk for a coach builder and blacksmith at Walla Walla in 1915 at 16 years of age. With several years of clerical experience and studying accountancy by correspondence, Harry moved on and became the accountant for Victorian Producers Co-operative Company Limited in 1921.

After 10 years he ventured out on his own and purchased a small office in Commercial Street Walla Walla. In 1934 Harry Acquired the HV McKay Massey Harris machinery franchise, and in 1942 his son Lionel joined the business resulting in the formation of H.A. Jacob & Son Pty. Ltd. Later, in 1967, Lionel's son Neville also joined the company.

Harry Passed away in 1972 and Lionel became the managing director of H.A Jacob & Sons. It was in June 1975 the H. A. Jacob and Sons were appointed the Toyota franchise and Jacob Toyota was born.

And so began decades of growth for the company with small local acquisitions at Henty and Corowa and eventually a large investment and building program in Albury. In 1986, simply due to site restrictions and the increasing customer demands for our products, the company relocated its headquarters to Melbourne Road, Wodonga - where it is located today.

The company recognised the huge growth and positive marketing potential in North East Victoria and Southern NSW area - a region that offers a diversified range of business, industrial and tourism opportunities, and is also the main transport corridor between Sydney and Melbourne.
