SKODA AUTO Senior Management Delegation Visits ARTOC Auto
A delegation of seven executive managers from ?KODA AUTO visited ARTOC Auto between 17th and 19th October 2011. Headed by Christian Wiegel, ?KODA Auto's Director of International Sales, the delegation met with ARTOC Auto's senior management team - headed by M. Shafik Gabr, ARTOC Group's Chairman and Managing Director - to discuss and align objectives and strategies for the Egyptian market in the coming period.
A visit was also conducted to ARTOC Auto's integrated automotive center (AAIAC) off the Ring Road in Kattameya. Spanning an area of 14,000 m2 and comprising a showroom, service center and spare parts outlet, the AAIAC will be the largest facility of its kind to serve ?KODA customers in the Middle East and North Africa. Indeed ?KODA AUTO's visiting executives were immensely impressed by ARTOC Auto's investment of over EGP 120 million (excluding land cost) and commitment to launch such a facility despite the recent political and economic unrest in Egypt.
The AAIAC is expected to be fully operational before the end of the year and will be able to serve over 100 cars/day, employing 500 individuals.
