Aamal Trading and Distribution – a subsidiary of Aamal Company, yesterday announced the opening of its second ‘First Stop’ tyre and auto service centre in Doha in partnership with Bridgestone Middle East.
Located on Muaither’s Commercial Street, the move builds on the success since February of the ‘First Stop’ centre on Salwa Road, Doha, which has demonstrated that Qatari motorists are highly receptive to an auto tyre and servicing model that is fast, efficient, and highly price competitive.
Indeed, this centre has been so popular that there was no doubt about the need for another such facility, offering even more customers the chance to enjoy a convenient automotive servicing experience.
In addition to tyre services, Aamal Trading and Distribution is capitalising on its partnership with Total Lubricants whereby Total will also offer its services through its flagship Rapid Oil Change (ROC) service. Through these oil change centres, Total provides a professional oil change service; this partnership further demonstrates Total’s commitment to enhanced customer service and to providing innovative solutions for Qatari customers.
First Stop customers will benefit from a unique experience through this fully-fledged service centre.
As the flagship retail brand of Bridgestone, First Stop is one of the most successful names in Europe’s hugely competitive retail tyre and auto service sector, operating in 25 countries.
Currently expanding in the Middle East, Aamal Trading and Distribution is working in close cooperation with Bridgestone MEA to bring the tyre giant’s auto servicing brand to Qatar.
Syed Rashid Hassan, General Manager of Aamal Trading and Distribution, said: “We are proud to have launched our First Stop auto centres here in Qatar. We have seen in the five months since opening the first outlet that Qatari motorists really appreciate the convenience, comfort and quality of service which we offer. With our partners at Bridgestone MEA, we have worked hard to deliver an outstanding customer experience to motorists who put their faith in us and I’m pleased to say that the opening of another First Stop centre bears witness to the success of these efforts.”
Emre Palali, General Manager of Bridgestone’s Retail Division, said: “We have been excited to see how quickly Qatari motorists have embraced the concept of a one-stop-shop automotive servicing experience… With the opening of this new First Stop centre, now even more customers, whether they are private motorists or businesses requiring fleet services will be able to benefit from that excellence and convenience.”
