Chairman Message

Our company was founded in 1951 by Chris and Maria Economides and initially started operations exporting fruit, importing sewing machines, radios and films. In 1953, the company became the Mercedes-Benz Agent for Cyprus and in 1955, the sole distributor of the brand on the island. The company presence of CiC Mercedes-Benz has been intensive and active, throughout all phases of modern Cypriot history.

Even though, during the British colonial years, Mercedes-Benz was an unknown brand in Cyprus and a more expensive alternative to the well established brands, it quickly gained ground in the market and became synonymous with quality, reliability and technical excellence. In only a few years, it rose to a prominent position in the perception and preference of private customers and professionals alike.

Mercedes-Benz buses and taxis played an important role in the development of tourism and public transport, while the brand’s commercial vehicles proved to be a valuable ally for professionals working in all kinds of activity, be it transportation of goods, construction, utilities and infrastructure, by providing the most suited solution for even the most demanding tasks.

At the same time, our long and successful standing in the market would not have been possible without a comprehensive, reliable and consistent after-sales support to our valued customers.

Our daughter company, CiC Automasters Ltd, was founded in 2010, as the authorized distributor of Fiat, Fiat Professional, Alfa Romeo, Jeep and Abarth vehicles in Cyprus. With almost 10 years of presence, the company leaves its mark on the Cyprus automotive market, offering multiple options and solutions for the Cypriot consumer/driver and creating new growth prospects.

Our company continues the dynamic path set by previous generations with the same foundational corporate values followed since day one, while consistently developing and improving its services, in response to the ever changing market and customer needs.
