Barry M Maney OAM – Founder
January 1943 to August 2015
The Barry Maney Group was founded by the late Mr Barry Maney OAM in July 1976, initially as a Ford dealer and with a team of 20 people. We now hold six franchises: Ford, Hyundai and Volkswagen cars, and Kenworth, DAF and Hino trucks
Barry’s promise from day one was to develop a caring team culture and support our valued clients with quality after sales service. We are proud to say that over 40 years on, our commitment to customer care is even stronger today.
We are a one stop automotive dealer, so whether you are in the market for a new or used vehicle, light or heavy truck, finance, spare parts, tyres, service, repairs or just need some advice, our team are trained to assist you promptly and efficiently.
In January of 2019, the Barry Maney Group was acquired by privately owned, family business, the CMV Group. An integral part of the Australian transport industry since 1934, the CMV Group and Barry Maney Group share a long history, already having a wonderful and well-established business relationship built over many decades. David Millard, Managing Director of Barry Maney Group at the time said, “The Barry Maney Group uphold values similar to that of the CMV Group and with the parallel histories of the two organisations, it really felt as though the transition of ownership to that of the CMV Group was a natural progression”.
Today, the Barry Maney Group continues to support our local community and we are a major sponsor for Regional Foodbank Mount Gambier, a corporate sponsor of the Mount Gambier Library & Community Centre, plus we support the Life Education Centre, Geared to Drive, the ac. care Homelessness Luncheon and many other worthy causes.
The team is fully committed to continuing the legacy that Barry has built over many years and have the resolve to strive to live up to our long-term vision and mission.
We look forward to welcoming you to our dealership soon, in the meantime we wish you safe motoring.
