Cecil Champion Mexted started Mexted Motors in 1925. He was married in September that year and their first home was on the site of what is today, Mexted Motors south display yard.
A little earlier Cecil had started a carrying business. This was C C Mexted Ltd and it continued successfully until his son, Brian, sold the business in 1978.
A little earlier than 1925 Cecil had built a very large garaging area for his trucks. These trucks were mainly large solid-tyred Thornycrofts. The building became very much a part of Mexted Motors and it survived the Wahine storm, while other buildings nearby lost their roofs.
Mexted Motors continued to thrive and in the 1960s Cecil’s son, Graham, gained the franchise for the distribution of Mitsubishi vehicles. He had already been working with Todd’s selling Plymouths, De Sotos, etc.
The next move forward was when Graham’s son, Murray, joined the firm and worked alongside his father for several years. In 1978 Murray organised the complete rebuild of the Mexted Motors complex.
Later Graham’s younger son, Alan, took over the running of the firm and he then took on the additional franchise for Suzuki vehicles.
In 2021 Mark Munkittrick took over the running of the business, overseeing the total renovation of the site, including the construction of the new service reception area.
As well as having many loyal and long-standing customers in the Tawa area, the team have sold and serviced cars to customers across the city and its surrounding suburbs as well as all over the country.
