History of Maitland & Port Stephens Toyota
Maitland & Port Stephens Toyota are family owned dealerships operated by the Burton family. From humble beginnings, Maitland & Port Stephens Toyota have risen to great success. This is reflected in the many awards they have won, including 4 times “Australian Dealer of the Year”, 10 times “Nationally Number 1 for Customer Satisfaction” and 10 times “President’s Award for Excellence”.
Norman and Maureen Burton began the operation in 1963. At that time the business was a Golden Fleece Petrol Station with a small car yard and a service workshop, located at 104 Newcastle Rd East Maitland.
In 1970 the Norman and Maureen purchased a second property located at 250 High Street Maitland which they had refurbished into a new cars showroom with a service facility.
The business operated out of these two sites until 2002, when a new facility combining all divisions of the company onto one site was built.
Maitland & Port Stephens Toyota is now located at 104-124 Newcastle Road, East Maitland.
In 2008 the Burton family was proud to open a second Toyota dealership in Port Stephens.
Port Stephens Toyota is located at 70 Port Stephens Drive, Taylor’s Beach.
This new state of the art facility has a new cars showroom as well as a service workshop centre and it reflects the Burton family’s commitment to guests and their changing needs.
Norman and Maureen continue to play an active role in the business as do their two sons Norm Jnr and Kim and their daughter Dianne. A number of their grandchildren also work in the business.
The Burton Family’s Toyota dealerships at Maitland & Port Stephens Toyota and Port Stephens are recognised by Toyota as a leader in the industry. The highly professional staff is totally committed to providing outstanding guest service.
