Welcome to the Northeast Auto Group

Built from the ground up over a quarter of a century and backed by family values,
we’re the one-stop auto shop that always goes above and beyond.

Built one customer and one truck at a time.
With sales, service and parts all in one place.
And the only one with its own in-house engineering hub.
That’s what makes us number one.
That’s the northeast experience!

Our history

The Northeast Auto Group journey began with Charlie Emanuele (Dec 2013) and Peter Emanuele (Dec 2022), who began working in the Adelaide automotive market, on the basis of buying and selling used cars in the 1970’s. Midway through the 80’s, a base operation was established in Hampstead Gardens where they began the venture of buying and selling second-hand trucks, which soon became the main focus of the business for several years. By 1993, Charlie’s son, Tony, commenced his Diesel Technician apprenticeship, and Joe joined the business in 1996, starting with the spare parts division

Based on Charlie’s passion and reputation for customer service, the business was approached by Isuzu-General Motors in 1995 (now Isuzu Australia Limited). Charlie shared with the Isuzu executives his vision of an expansive Isuzu Truck dealership on an empty lot in Burton, the original site for Northeast Isuzu and now the Northeast Auto Group

Since 2013, with Tony & Joe’s vision and leadership, the Group has continued to grow from strength to strength, winning multiple awards, further building on its brand and becoming the largest seller of new and used trucks in South Australia. Through its evolution, and desire to offer a turn-key solution to the industry, various other business units were created in order to better service the Groups loyal customers, in the form of the Engineering & Manufacturing division, Parts & Service, Agricultural and Construction equipment with additional franchises such as Iveco, Isuzu Ute, Kobelco and Polaris, along with the different locations around South Australia, and the more recently acquired Shepparton dealership.

With our updated state-of-the-art facilities sprawling across 24 acres at Burton, locations at Port Augusta, Hampstead Gardens, Lonsdale and Shepparton (Victoria), and with future scope to continue the expansion of the business into other markets, the future looks bright for the original “One Stop Auto Shop”.
