Hickman Automotive Group is a family owned and operated business, established in 1905 by Albert E. Hickman who was born in Grand Bank Newfoundland. The original Company, A. E. Hickman Company, was in the fish business as a supplier, a buyer, and a seller. The Company would buy salt fish from the Fisherman around the Island and transport it in their own vessels to South America, the Caribbean, and the Mediterranean. In turn, they would bring back coal, salt and other commodities to Newfoundland. Albert E. Hickman had a fascination with the Automobile and started selling cars in 1905 - cars that he would import from New York. In 1923, the Company became the Ford distributor for Newfoundland and continued until 1952 when it changed to the General Motors products. Today, our Automotive Group has expanded to other vehicle franchises and employs approximately 385 people in Newfoundland and Labrador.
