The Cookson Motors Ltd. story is a great one because it mirrors the success sagas of many other companies.
Our story is classic, complete with a humble beginning, consistent family ownership and very active family involvement. The precepts which launched our Kelowna based company four decades ago are still our driving force: quality products and quality service, long-term employees and excellent customer relations with a personal touch.
Hugo Cookson Sr.
Cookson Motors Ltd. is a family owned business that was founded in 1965 by Hugo Cookson Sr. Originally in a small 2,500 square foot shop staffing only one employee, we have grown to employ more that 50 people and stand on 15,000 square feet of shop space. The family tradition has continued with the leadership of Hugo Cookson Jr.

Our success was, however, not achieved overnight. Over the years, growth has always been steady and firmly based on a solid foundation of trust and integrity. We have grown to become the premier heavy and medium duty International Truck dealer in British Columbia. Our dealerships in Kelowna and Penticton offer complete sales, service, parts, leasing, rentals and financing services and we carry International Trucks, Vanguard trailers, and a large inventory of used trucks.
