About us

Our History

The Company began trading in 1896, in Bulawayo as a Bicycle Dealer. In 1911 the Company was appointed as a “Dealer” for Ford Motor Product in what was then Northern and Southern Rhodesia. Ford Motor Company established an assembly plant in Salisbury (now Harare) for the supply of vehicles to Northern Rhodesia (now Zambia) and Southern Rhodesia ( now Zimbabwe) using the Duly Motors Network in both countries. The assembly plant was taken over by the Industrial Development Corporation when Ford Motor Company withdrew from the Country after the Unilateral Declaration of Independence in 1965. The Plant is the present day Willowvale Mazda Motor Industries.

In 1980, Duly’s re-established ties with the Ford Motor Company, dealing in Motor vehicles, Tractors, Combine Harvesters and other Agricultural equipment. However in the latter part of the 1990’s Ford decided to dispose of its Agricultural operations Worldwide to Fiat of Italy. Locally, Duly’s in turn sold its Agricultural Division to William Bain who represented Fiat.

Social Responsibilities

We pride ourselves in our social role within our community. Below are a few areas where we were able to lend a hand.

  • Sponsorship of students at Chibero College.
  • Sponsorship for Tennis Zimbabwe through the provision of transport to the Zimbabwe Davis Cup Team, their opponents and the support staff.
  • Sponsorship for the Zimbabwe Cricket Union in provisions of vehicles for the team.
  • Together with Environment 2000, Duly’s pioneered and sponsored the Environment 2000 Corporate relay.
  • Support and sponsorship of the Imire World Rhino Day.
  • On an annual basis, Dulys runs the Ford Global Week of Caring. This is an initiative that has run since 2010, in association with Ford Motor Company. In this initiative, our aim is to give back to those in need in our society. The drive also looks at how to preserve and protect the environment. This was the approach taken last year with the Mukuvise Woodlands, where we resuscitated Ponds for Local and Exotic Migrant Birds.
