Commenting at the opening ceremony, Fahad Ali Alghanim, vice-chairman, Al-Ahlia Heavy Vehicles Selling & Import Co, said, ?Our partnership with MAN Truck & Bus has been exemplary over the past 13 years. We grew from a humble market share of five per cent before the partnership between Al-Ahlia and MAN began to an average of 35 per cent over the last decade, selling over 2,300 trucks and 150 marine engines in Kuwait since 2005. Today, with this facility, Al Ahlia is committed to steadily increase MAN?s market share and become the market leaders.?

The 4,000 sq m workshop, 1,750 sq m parts warehouse and 6,000 sq m storage facility for trucks will ensure that customers get top-notch service and that a much wider range of genuine spare parts are immediately available.
