In 1946, Salvador Fernandes Caetano co-founded Martins & Caetano & Irmão, Lda, the bus bodywork factory that would later lead to Salvador Caetano. Even today, the bodywork activity is present in the group through CaetanoBus.
The corporate name, which until then was Salvador Caetano
IMVT – SA, changed to Toyota Caetano Portugal – S.A, in 2006.
Two years later, following the strategy outlined at European level, the company acquires the representative in Portugal of the warehouse equipment of the Swedish brand BT.
