IVECO, in partnership with its dealer Global Motors Centre (GMC) inaugurated a new, state-of-the-art showroom and service centre in Nairobi, Kenya today with the participation of sixty among the most important companies in the local transport sector and twentyfive journalists. The ceremony was hosted by Mr. Farooq Sheikh, Managing Director of GMC and by Mr. Marco Torta, Area Manager for East Africa at IVECO.
Located on the ICD Road, adjacent to Mombasa road, the new IVECO showroom and service centre has been designed to provide IVECO customers with the ‘3S’ approach: Sales, Service and Spare Parts. The showroom welcomes visitors in a comfortable and eye-catching environment. The workshop is staffed with qualified service technicians and well-stocked with spare parts to offer professional and efficient support.
GMC was appointed as IVECO’s dealer in Kenya in 2017 and assembles the Eurocargo medium truck and the Trakker heavy tipper version at its assembly plant in Mombasa.
IVECO and GMC plan to start production of the new Stralis X-Way truck designed for construction logistics, at the Mombasa facility later in the year.
GMC also sells and provides assistance for the line-up of IVECO Daily light duty vehicles, offering an extensive product offer ranging from 3.5 tonnes to 7 tonnes GVW, available in 4x2 and 4x4 configuration.
IVECO and GMC are currently supplying specialised heavy vehicles to Kenya's Government sector.
