- PRESS RELEASE
General Motors dealer partners Moosa and OTE Group, will build seven new customer sales and service facilities in Oman this year, as they look to enhance customer service in the Gulf state.
In addition to the new builds, Moosa and OTE Group will renovate and upgrade four existing sites in the country during 2013.
"General Motors' dealer partners are investing heavily in adding new facilities in Oman," said John Stadwick, President and Managing Director of General Motors Middle East.
"Investment in both new facilities and the upgrading of existing sites is extremely important, as we prepare to launch more new vehicle launches in the Middle East over the next 18 months than any time in our history."
The expansion and renovation plan continues from last year when Moosa, GM's dedicated GMC dealer, and OTE Group, upgraded 10 sales facilities in Oman. Moosa also opened a new showroom in Sur in 2012. Both dealers have a total of 22 sales and service customer facilities in Oman.
The upgrading of dealer facilities in Oman and across the Middle East comes in line with GM Middle East's retail standards assessments which are part of the company's strategy to create a world class shopping, buying and ownership experience for customers.
GM's Retail Standards Team completed the second round of 2012 dealer assessments in December having visited 13 GM dealers and 100 GM locations in seven countries - Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain, Oman and Jordan.
Scores for Moosa and OTE Group rose 40% on average from the first round of assessments.
There are 16 retail standards which cover the customer's entire life cycle experience, from before they have even purchased their first GM vehicle, through to their buying and servicing vehicle experience, and into trading in their existing GM vehicle for a brand new one.
The 16 retail standards are broken down into 123 practice points which are assessed by the team across all dealer functions for sales, service, parts and Customer Relationship Management.
General Motors' dealers in Oman reported total sales of 3,501 vehicles in 2012, up 28% from the previous year. 2012 was also General Motors' second best sales year ever.
Chevrolet and GMC recorded their second best sales year ever in 2012 as sales for both rose 29 and 21% respectively year-on-year. Sales of Cadillac, General Motors' luxury brand, nearly tripled.
