THE OL STORY

 

partsThe Ian Weigh Group acquired the Opposite Lock franchise in July 2000 and began trading as Opposite Lock Rockhampton dedicating a small 4WD accessory area within the Toyota parts department.

The Opposite Lock brand was still relatively unknown at this time but was slowly making an impact in the 4WD market.

2004 saw the redevelopment of the Ian Weigh Toyota building allowing Opposite Lock Rockhampton to further expand its operations at the new showroom located on the corner of Fitzroy & Denison street.

The popularity of the OL 4WD product had taken off allowing us to branch into both the sales and fitment of accessories and we had, once again, outgrown our facilities.

After years of planning it was finally time to further develop the continuously expanding Opposite Lock Rockhampton franchise.

December 2013 marked the start of construction for the new superstore and we officially opened the doors on the 20th September 2014.

This new state of the art 4WD superstore offers an innovative showroom with unique displays such as a dedicated vehicle light room and tech bay, 7 accessory fitment bays, 3 vehicle detailing bays, 2 window tinting bays and a vehicle quality inspection bay.

Minimising our environmental footprint has always been a focus point of Opposite Lock Rockhampton and the new development provided the perfect opportunity to create an environmentally efficient and sustainable building. The building hosts a number of Eco-friendly options such as underground water tanks for water recycling, 120KW Solar system and LED lighting configured to activate off motion sensors.
