March 17, (THEWILL) – CFAO Equipment in Nigeria has signed up as the official co-distributor of Sinotruk Howo, a brand of heavy-duty trucks, manufactured by the China National Heavy-Duty Truck Group Co. Ltd. (CNHTC).
The partnership, which was sealed towards the end of last year, is expected to shore up better deals, and boost end-users productivity and profit.
Stakeholders are of the view that as an internationally recognised company selling premium automotive brands in Nigeria, the Sinotruk Howo models will be given the CFAO Advantage, backed by over a century-old service and technical know-how experience in Nigeria.
Before now, CFAO has been providing products and services across different countries over the years. And key among the products and services being provided to its teeming patrons are automobile and construction equipment.
Amongst other products distributed by the group, CFAO Equipment, (which is under her Mobility subsidiary) currently distributes FUSO Trucks, King Long buses and Cargo Vans, JCB Construction Equipment and Toyota Forklift Machines.
However, the company has taken another bold step by adding the renowned Sinotruk Howo brand (N Series) to its line-up, with 371hp, 420hp and 430hp respectively.
General Manager of CFAO Equipment, Mr Francois Van Bladel, stated, “As a leading automotive company in Nigeria, we have established a wide and efficient distribution network that can deliver the trucks to every part of the country. We have the pedigree and the right personnel and technical support for customers, dealers and service centres so they have the necessary skills and knowledge to handle Howo Sinotruk’s products effectively.”
According to the Head of sales for Trucks and Buses, CFAO Equipment, Mr Idris Siyaka, the partnership will enable CFAO Nigeria to expand its product portfolio with Sinotruk’s range of high-quality trucks at affordable prices.
He noted that with the overall package of better after-sales support including maintenance, repairs, and spare parts, businesses can keep their vehicles in good condition and minimise downtime.
The Sales Manager, Henrietta Osakwe, also noted that the Sinotruk brand is marked with a high-class and powerful engine and torque, low failure rate, high dependability, exceptional cost performance, as well as the lowest life cost for acquisition and maintenance when compared to any other trucks in its category placed side by side with any European and American trucks.
