In 2005, Ermelo Toyota bought the battling Pongola Toyota in partnership with the Holl Family. Roelof Grove took over as Dealer Principal and is also a shareholder in Pongola Toyota. The dealership was spectacularly turned around and vehicle sales were increased from 7 units a year to the current just less than 300 units a year. Brand new world class facilities were completed in 2010.
