“We are thrilled with the accolades awarded to the brands represented by Fouad Alghanim & Sons Automotive and the popularity of these brands is mirrored by the strong growth of sales of the Audi, Volkswagen, Volkswagen Commercial and Skoda vehicles in Kuwait,” FAA General Manager, Irfan Tansel, remarked on this achievement.
“Such recognition will only force our team of professionals to strive for continuous excellence and to achieve further growth of our brands in the Kuwaiti car market,” he added.
