Nithyanandh K, As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! So here I'm, petrolhead by birth, Mechanical engineer by qualification and automotive reporter by profession!
More such distribution centres to be established across the country.
In a move to make genuine spare parts available off the shelves outside its authorized dealerships, Ford India has commenced retail distribution of parts starting from New Delhi.
The automaker has appointed Eminent Auto Parts as its exclusive distributor for Delhi. The move allows the customers to get their Ford cars repaired at any preferred multi-brand workshop or their trusted mechanics.
The company has announced that it will appoint similar distributors in Karnataka, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Kerala and East of India but has not give a timeframe. For customers preferring to use the authorized service centres, Ford has introduced new budget scheduled service scheme called ‘Happy Pockets’ which starts at INR 2,199.
Speaking about the development, Mr. Nigel Harris, President and MD, Ford India said:
While we gradually ramp up our service presence, we want to ensure that genuine Ford spare parts are never far from a customer’s reach. Ford Genuine Parts will guarantee continued quality, safety and convenience to our consumers.
