SANA’A (YEMEN), March 19 (Bernama) — Proton’s Yemeni agent, Al-Fath Motor’s, plans to set up three more showrooms in the country this year at a cost of around US$200,000 each.
This is part of the company’s efforts to making its presence felt.
Al-Fath Motor’s which has a showroom in Sana’a at present, is considering opening the new ones at Hudaidah, Aden and Taaz, General Manager Taimor A. Al-Ameri said.
“We hope our expansion plan is in line with Proton’s efforts to continue strengthening its export programme,” he told Bernama in an interview here Friday.
“As an industry newcomer, we will try to implement our strategy of very carefully strengthening marketing, after sales services, and the sales force,” he said.
Al-Fath Motor’s which started selling Proton’s cars like the Persona and Waja in December last year, has managed to sell 130 units so far, Taimor disclosed.
He said the company was confident of achieving its sales target of another 500 units of vehicles for this year in view of strong customer interest.
“Yemeni’s like made-in-Malaysia products,” he added.
Al-Fath Motor’s is a participant at the Malaysia-Yemen Festival 2010 organised by the Malaysian Malay Chamber of Commerce, to commemorate the growing bilateral ties and promoting economic development in both countries.
The event which began on March 17, ends tomorrow at the Sana’a Expo Centre.
Taimor said the company is also looking at the possibility of bringing in the new Proton Exora seven-seater MPV in future and has proposed to the government to use the Waja as a patrol car for the police.
“We want to take our efforts a step further by introducing suitable cars for the low, middle and high income market segments,” he explained.
