Dealership History

Cross & Norman

Our history begins in 1964 when Bob Norman and Ben Cross opened up the first Volkswagen Franchise in the Fraser Valley, and only the third in all of British Columbia! Cross and Norman's facility was built on the same lot where we stand today; at the corner of Fraser Highway and 200th Street! Notice the one lane roadway and dirt road sides absent of sidewalks. This first building held only one vehicle in its showroom and only two bays were present in the service center!

In 1997, Bob Norman's son, Bruce Norman took over as the sole proprietor. By this time, the dealership had been expanded to accommodate a four-car showroom as well as a four-bay service center with dedicated parts and service counters.The business changed names once again, becoming Langley Volkswagen in 2001. The facility was upgraded to include customer parking, a fifth bay and a heated two-car wash bay and detailing center.

Two years later in 2003, the dealership was further upgraded by the expansion to a six-car showroom, dedicated customer waiting area, designated reception and accounting, expanded service and parts center, upstairs boardroom, new offices, air conditioning and internet access.


Milani Auto Sales

Meanwhile, not so far away on Hastings Street in Burnaby, the Milani's were also entering the auto sales world. Lino opened up Milani Auto Body in 1982, his youngest son Jeff who was always fascinated with cars, spent much of his time helping his father out at the shop. Jeff had worked with cars ever since he could walk, so naturally in 1991, Jeff opened up his own car dealership which happened to be located beside his father's shop. Jeff's older brother Derrick ran the body shop for their business.

Milani Auto Sales took off immediately; in 1996 they moved to a larger lot and also opened up a second location including an auto finance company. In 2009, Jeff sold his property with plans to find a new location for his business which had grown into a complete auto sales, service and auto body facility.


Milani Norman Auto Sales

It must have been fate, because during this transition, Jeff received a phone call from Chris Norman proposing that they work together. These two great Dealerships combined forces and in 2010, Milani and Norman Auto Sales and Leasing Incorporated was born. This milestone also marks the third generation of the company as Chris Norman, is the grandson of Bob Norman.

With over 50 years of experience and passion, it is easy to see why so much of our success stems from referrals and repeat customers.  Milani Norman continues to be a leading pre-owned dealership serving not only the Lower Mainland, but also gaining customers from other provinces and internationally. From all of us at Milani Norman, we thank-you for giving us the opportunity to earn your business!
