The CAOA Group is a company that is known for their distribution of vehicle brands such as Chery, Ford, Hyundai, and Subaru. The company operates in Brazil, and many Brazilians are counting in the company to get the vehicle that they wanted. Carlos Alberto de Oliveira Andrade established the CAOA Group, and the company’s name came from his initials. The company will be celebrating its 40th anniversary next year, and according to the founder, he is excited to see another decade of his company unfold. It was in 1979 when the CAOA Group was established, and today, the company is proud to present their automobile factory situated in Anapolis. The CAOA Group currently assembles Hyundai and Chery vehicles inside their plant in Anapolis, making it more affordable and accessible to the public.
Carlos Alberto de Oliveira Andrade was a physician, and he never realized that he would be dragged into the automobile industry. For him, everything was purely an accident. He recalled that in 1979, he was heading to a dealership named Vepel to purchase his Ford Landau. Unbeknownst to him, the dealership has declared bankruptcy, and he was not able to retrieve the vehicle that he ordered. To compensate him, the owner of Vepel decided to hand over the dealership to him, and Carlos Alberto de Oliveira Andrade was requested to manage the dealership and make it profitable once again. The doctor was clueless about managing a dealership, but he never surrendered easily and tried to read articles and journals that might help him run his new company.
With hard work, dedication, and determination, Carlos Alberto de Oliveira Andrade was able to transform his business into the largest Ford dealership in South America. Changes in Brazilian law helped his business further. In 1992, the government of Brazil started to allow the importation of foreign vehicles, and the CAOA Group began importing vehicles from Japan, like Subaru which became an instant bestseller. Hyundai was imported by the CAOA Group a few years later, and it became one of their most in-demand brands. Carlos Alberto de Oliveira Andrade invested a huge sum of money in managing his business, and it ended up positively as the CAOA Group made their reputation among the vehicle enthusiasts in the country.
