Capricorn was established in 1974 by a small group of Western Australian service station owners to increase their buying power and level the playing field with the big multinational oil companies. We are a member based organisation proudly operating by cooperative principles to primarily support businesses in the automotive industry. Our approach allows our Members to better manage their businesses by saving time and money.
We offer our Members a broader range of services, including equipment finance, travel services and business protection. Operating on cooperative principles means our Members are the owners too and are eligible to receive dividends, if declared.
Members enjoy regular social and networking events.
Today, we have over 16,000 Members and over 1,800 committed Preferred Suppliers across Australia and New Zealand.
