Those were the days…. Roger Gill Motors flies its flags proudly from the site on the corner of Manukau and Kitchener Roads, Pukekohe, proud to be part of the community where it all really started for this firm. Business owner Phillip Gill talks about the family history and connections with Pukekohe Township. His grandfather the late William Gill was involved in the New Zealand transport industry for over 80 years. William started his business back in 1924 and established his company William Gill Limited in Pukekohe in 1930, old photographs show the business located on a block of land between King and West Streets, around where the current Smart Bar is now situated. The business operated up until the early 1950’s when it was sold.
