About us - Italian Auto CentreItalian Auto Centre was established in 1984 out of the passion that owner, Barry Bateman had for Italian cars. An engineer by trade, his all-round knowledge of the modern Fiat and Alfa Romeo range is unsurpassed.
In the nearly 30 years since Barry started the business, the scope and complexity of modern vehicles has increased exponentially. The Fiat Automotive Group, (producer of Fiat and Alfa Romeo vehicles amongst others) has been an innovator of many technologies in the last 20years including robotic assembly techniques and pioneered fuel management techniques such as common rail fuel injection; both of which are now considered world-wide industry standards. These advances have resulted in the need to embrace increasingly complex technologies, which are a normal day-to-day occurrence at Italian Auto Centre.
As a consequence of its growing reputation, in 1997 Italian Auto Centre was appointed to the nationwide Fiat & Alfa Romeo parts and service network. This in turn lead to being designated the only dedicated sales/service agency for Fiat Professional vehicles in New Zealand. Link
It may have been Barry’s singular vision back nearly 30 years ago to apply his mechanical engineering expertise to Fiats, but it is nowadays very much a 21st century operation – a complex mixture of hard engineering and software, the mastery of which the team is justifiably proud.
