CMC Mo­tors owner sets up au­to­mo­tive academy in Kenya

The Star (Kenya) - - News -

Dubai-based Al-Fut­taim Group has opened an au­to­mo­tive academy in Nairobi – its first in sub-Sa­ha­ran Africa. The gi­ant au­to­mo­tive firm bought out auto dealer CMC Mo­tors for Sh7.5 bil­lion in April 2014. The CMC Mo­tors Tech­ni­cal Train­ing Academy, at CMC Mo­tors com­plex, is part of the com­pany’s strat­egy to boost cus­tomer ex­pe­ri­ence and af­ter-sales ca­pac­ity in East Africa. “Through the CMC Group, the Al-Fut­taim Au­to­mo­tive Group is do­ing very well on our first foray into sub-Sa­hara Africa as we con­tinue to in­vest and ex­pand,” group pres­i­dent Len Hunt said in a state­ment. The Emi­rates-based group ac­quired CMC mo­tors less than two years ago, and is work­ing to im­prove the firm’s cus­tomer ser­vice de­part­ment, de­velop new mar­kets and en­hance qual­ity of its prod­ucts in an ef­fort to re­tain a more than 20 per cent mar­ket share lo­cally.
