Nissan has reached a new milestone this year to expand the brand’s aftersales network to over 60 service facilities across the region.
With the inauguration of three new service facilities in the Qatar and Abu Dhabi markets, Nissan’s established network of service centres across the Middle East is a testament to the brand’s sustained dedication to customer satisfaction, according to a press statement.
With the newly established service facilities, the Nissan regional aftersales network now offers an overall capacity of over 2,500 vehicles per day. This enables over 700,000 vehicles per year to be serviced across 10 Middle East markets comprising Qatar, Abu Dhabi, Bahrain, Dubai, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman and Yemen.
Due to the rich history and heritage of the legendary Nissan Patrol in the region, Nissan also caters to customers with dedicated Patrol service centres located in Doha, Kuwait City and Dubai, the statement notes. "By supporting and assisting partners in local markets, Nissan ensures customers receive exceptional service and satisfaction at all outlets across the region, aligning with the Nissan Retail Concept (NRC). Embodying the new brand identity, the newly opened facilities are built on NRC principles. The facilities offer customers a seamless experience across multiple touchpoints through optimised layouts of the facility, service processes and digital environments, to provide customers with a globally consistent brand experience that surpasses expectations," the statement adds.
Commenting on the opening of the new facilities, Andrew McLaughlan, Aftersales director at Nissan Middle East, said: “The continuous expansion of our world-class aftersales facilities allows us to cater to the evolving aftersales market in the region, and provide customers with quick, efficient and high-quality service that has been synonymous with Nissan over the past six decades.”
Nassim Mourani, general manager – Automotive Group at Saleh Al Hamad Al Mana Co, the exclusive agent for Nissan in Qatar, added: “The new facilities embody the Nissan new brand identity and offer customers a seamless experience within a digital environment. Nissan facilities will offer comprehensive car services by technical expertise in real time. We always endeavour to improve our services and leverage the latest technologies and systems, and customers in Qatar can only expect the best and most advanced service."
