The story so far...
Fitzpatrick's Garage Kildare was founded in 1951, in a small lane just off the Square in Kildare Town by Jimmy Fitzpatrick, an uncle of Andy Fitzpatrick, Managing Director of the Fitzpatricks Garage Group.
In 1968 the original business re-located to its current premises and head office on the Dublin Road, in Kildare Town.
Since its foundation over 65 years ago, Fitzpatrick's have consistently grown and invested significantly in all aspects of its motor business to become one of the most advanced and progressive motor groups in Ireland with showrooms in Kildare, Naas, Carlow and Tullamore.
To acknowledge and reward the custom and loyalty shown by its customers, Fitzpatrick's launched their new Loyalty Club Card in 2011, which today has over 7,000 members, who enjoy a host of benefits and rewards.
Following a strategic review of its operations in 2012, Fitzpatrick's Garage Group embarked on a comprehensive multi-franchise approach to its motor business, which saw it forging new alliances in 2013 with some of the leading and most exciting car brands, including Hyundai, Opel, Honda and Mercedes-Benz.
In addition to its main motor business, Fitzpatrick's own and operate two Maxol Service Stations with modern convenience stores in Kildare Town and Carlow.
The overall objective of this strategy was to provide customers with greater benefits in terms of value for money deals, greater choice, industry leading car warranties, affordable servicing and access to exciting car ranges.
With over 40 years association with the Toyota and Lexus brands, Fitzpatrick's Garages continue to offer Toyota service, genuine parts, warranty and re-call services to its customers as Toyota and Lexus Authorised Repairers from its locations in Kildare Town, Naas, Carlow and Tullamore.
Today, Fitzpatrick's employ 130 excellent people devoted to providing the motorists in counties Kildare, Laois, Carlow and Offaly with outstanding service and products, and has truly become the one-stop shop for the modern, value seeking and discerning motorist.
