MAC Ghana, the official and exclusive dealers for General Motors and Isuzu, has officially launched its service centre, showroom the latest model of Chevrolet Cruzeat 105, at Spintex Road, Accra.
The new service centre is to bring the company’s services closer to the doorsteps of its numerous customers.
It has an area of 4000 square metres, with vehicle sales, service and spare parts under the same roof and this would offer customers general maintenance, express repairs and other related services.
Speaking at the ceremony, Mr Raman Malhotra, the Country Head, MAC Ghana, noted that the company would continue to bring its services closer to its customers, as a means of upholding the standards of the company.
He said MAC Ghana began its operations in the country in Accra, in August 2014, with their first 3S (sales, service and spares) facility.
He explained that this was because Ghana is amongst one of the fastest growing economies in Africa and the third biggest automotive market in the entire West and Central Africa.
The Country Head said the company made a remarkable presence in Ghana in 2015 delivering 168 units and growing the business multifold over 2014, since its inception.
“In this short period we have laid down the foundation for building strong brand equity for both Chevrolet and Isuzu through investment in world class facilities, people and processes,” he added.
Mr Malhotra said due to management’s hard work MAC Ghana was awarded the ‘Most Promising Auto Company of the Year’ in the recently happened Automotive Awards in Accra.
He stated that as part of its ongoing strategy for Ghana, the company has planned initiatives to grow the business in 2016 through expansion of its retail facilities in Kumasi.
He said MAC Ghana would open a second showroom in Accra, in the second half of 2016.
The Country Head told the media, the company also plans to have its footprints in Takoradi and Tamale; stating that expansion would begin early 2017.
At the event, MAC Ghana also unveiled the Q and N series range of trucks as well as the new Chevrolet Cruze MY- 16.
Mr. Adel Khadr, the Group Chief Executive Officer, Mansour Automotive said, in this long journey extending more than 40 years, the company had become Egypt’s single largest and most reputed automotive company with annual sales of over 80000 units and also recognised as one of the leading corporations in the region as well.
He said at Mansour it was not just about business only; but that as a core group corporate philosophy, they also make humble contributions through the Monsour Foundation, supporting the development of communities in which they operate.
“We have always regarded and believed Africa as the land of unprecedented opportunities and great potential,” he noted.
