ANSA Automotive subsidiary Diamond Motors has been ranked among the top 20 dealerships in the world by German global vehicle manufacturer Daimler.
Matthias Barth, president of Daimler Latina made the announcement at Tuesday’s unveiling of the brand at Ansa Automotive’s new FUSO showroom, corner Charles and Richmond Street, Port-of-Spain. The showroom is a first for the Caribbean because facilities of that kind are usually reserved for sedans and similar types of vehicles.
“Even though T&T is not the biggest market in the world, you Diamond Motors, with your excellent performance, make it to the top 20 in the FUSO worldwide sales network. We really appreciate the loyalty of Diamond Motors to our brand and after having made this investment, I am sure our partnership will last for a long, long time,” Barth said.
“You all have seen the video about our new factory in Chennai, India, where we were able to bring together all the Daimler truck know-how in one single plant. The standards we set are exactly the same in our factories in Germany, Brazil, US or in Japan. We enlarged our product portfolio tremendously and with all these new trucks produced in India, but with FUSO and Mercedes technology, customers will find all the transportation solutions you may need in this showroom. The real showroom you will experience on the road, on the construction site or on the oil exploration fields.”
Barth said officials from several dealerships around the world, including T&T, visited the new plant in Asia and will be able to assure customers production quality with the merging of FUSO and Mercedes technology. He praised the company’s partnership with Diamond Motors as well as Ansa Automotive’s legacy in the business locally.
Rishi Basdeo, general manager at Diamond Motors, said several new models were added to the dealership portfolio and service excellence is a high priority aalong with after sales support.
