VACC has formally changed its name to the Victorian Automotive Chamber of Commerce. For over 100 years, Victoria’s peak automotive industry body operated as the Victorian Automobile Chamber of Commerce but now, through member input, the name has been altered to better cover all things automotive.
“VACC was founded in 1918 by a collective of car dealers. Our name has served us very well for more than a century but now, with VACC about to move into a new building, and with a board fully focussed on the next 100 years, the time is right for us to change our name to the Victorian Automotive Chamber of Commerce,” said VACC CEO, Geoff Gwilym.
VACC represents all facets of the automotive industry in Victoria and Tasmania, from mechanical repairers and auto electricians to recyclers and vehicle dealers, as well as body repairers and engineering specialists in the heavy vehicle space to tyre dealers and vehicle restorers.
“The change of name to Automotive better embodies the many sectors of the industry and reflects a more contemporary member organisation,” said Mr Gwilym.
