Volvo Trucks in Qatar has had a good year so far with their sales growth up by 100% in 2015 as compared to 2014. And to celebrate this, Domasco, the authorised distributors in Qatar for Volvo, hosted a business dinner recently. It was an occasion for the Volvo trucks VIP customers to interact with the
“Volvo Trucks has seen exceptional growth in the Qatari market this year. At Domasco, we value the strong relationships we build with our clients above all else and that is why, for us, it is not only about the product but the total solutions that we can offer to them,” Domasco managing director Faisal Sharif said.
Domasco’s commercial vehicles sales and marketing manager Mohamed Majeed stated that 2015 was a very good year for Volvo Trucks. “We have achieved full year target by the end of the third quarter and we are proud to reveal sales growth up by 100% this year over 2014,” he said.
The customers were also given a product presentation about the latest product from the Volvo FMX construction trucks – The FMX Transit Mixer. This truck is packed with features that will help reduce operating costs and has a lot of firsts for the truck industry here. Volvo claims that its chassis is the strongest in Qatar with an 8mm thickness. These trucks will also have the highest ground clearance in its category with a suspension that can handle the extreme surfaces that the construction sites here can offer.
The FMX truck comes with a Volvo’s I-Shift automate manual transmission which the manufacturer claims will offer better fuel efficiency and driveability. Volvo claims it can reduce 31 per cent of the fuel costs and at the same time help the driver focus more on the road rather than changing gears.
Volvo, which is known for their after-sales support, said that here in Qatar customers can now get a pre-planned service appointment. This means less time spent in the service centre and less inconvenience for the customer.
The customers were also given a presentation about Volvo Finance, which through their tie-up with banks will offer
tailored finance schemes.
After the presentations, the customers were taken outside where the FMX Transit Mixers were parked and they were able to take a closer look and experience in person, what the truck had to offer.
