HISTORY - Where we started...
Shortly after WWII, a small automotive repair company was founded in Northern Wairoa called Wairoa Auto Electric. Neville Boakes, the founder of Dasko, began work for Wairoa Auto Electric in 1963 as an apprentice auto electrician and spare parts salesman before eventually buying the company in 1987. To meet the growing demand for automotive electrical parts for European vehicles, he created a new division of the company which, in 1995 became Dasko Marketing — an independent company and respected national distributor of automotive electrical parts.
Full Service History.
A pivotal part of Neville Boakes’ job as an employee of the Wairoa Auto Electric company was to hand-deliver parts to his customers on the company bicycle, covering many kilometres each week. This early example of Dasko’s silver service performance is what set the benchmark for Dasko today.
Dasko has grown along with the Boakes family and today, three generations work within the company. Brothers Simon and Greg are both Directors and father Neville still maintains an active role.
The company now offers parts for all kinds of makes and models to cater for the vast array of vehicles on New Zealand’s roads.
