FAW Commercial Vehicle Manufacturers SA recently held its annual conference in Johannesburg for Southern African dealer sales and service representatives.
“This was a great platform to share information on all aspects related to our FAW truck business in this region while giving our sales and service partners a chance to share information, ask questions and make suggestions to improve our combined efforts for the FAW truck brand in South Africa,” says Mike Johnson, dealer development manager at FAW Vehicle Manufacturers SA (Pty) Ltd.
“We were also privileged to be given some good insight by Brand Pretorius, one of the doyens of the SA automotive industry, into what distinguishes a great company from a good one,” he says.
Top performing FAW dealers were also given due recognition for their valiant efforts in 2014.
“One of the reasons for FAW’s growing presence in the African sub-continent is our focus on successful partnerships. These include our customers first and foremost, our sales and service representatives and our suppliers.
“Our fundamental vision for this region, using South Africa as a base, is ensuring that the FAW brand becomes a household name across the length and breadth of this great continent and in so doing, we hope to significantly contribute to job creation and the general stimulation of the local and African economies,” says Johnson.
Exceptional Sales Performance 2014 Awards were made to: FAW Bloemfontein; FAW Harrismith; FAW Klerksdorp; and FAW Eastern Cape.
