Colonel David Dobie, a veteran of World War 2, founded D.T Dobie in 1949 & it was legally incorporated as a company in 1958. From humble beginnings, the company started out with the Mercedes-Benz franchise for East Africa which included both passenger and heavy commercial vehicles.
Subsequently in 1964 the organization was awarded the sole franchise distributorship of Nissan passenger and light commercial vehicles in Kenya.
The company was in the year 2000 acquired by CFAO, a French company that was then a wholly owned subsidiary of the Pinault Printemps-Redoute (PPR) group. In 2012 Toyota Tsusho Corporation (TTC) became the majority shareholder of CFAO after acquiring 97.81 %.
