Mr. Vladimir Knezevic, Managing Director at Famco UAE, commented: “Our customers are central to everything we do, so it was a logical decision for us to enhance our services by establishing the Middle East’s first Uptime Centre. This will allow us to better support businesses, providing further reassurance that when they choose a Volvo truck or machine, they are actively prioritising increased uptime and maximising profit, whilst reducing downtime and any negative impact on their investments.”
Frank O’Connor, Middle East Market Director of Volvo Trucks, said: “It is still uncommon for dealers to provide the levels of service that Famco is now offering, both in terms of the standards of advanced technology involved and the investment made in the upgrading of the Famco workshop facility. With the launch of its new Uptime Centre supported by Volvo, Famco is setting new standards for the truck industry in the Middle East.”
