For over 50 years Karamu Holden has been a key player in the Hawke’s Bay motor industry. They pride themselves on their strong client relationships and loyal customer base. People are a huge focus in their business.
In April 2018 Dave, Aileen and their family moved from Auckland to take over the ownership of Karamu Holden.
