The company has set up an eight-bay workshop in Jalandhar with the latest equipment and tools, adequate inventory of spare parts and qualified and trained manpower. PAL has already made inroads into this market with a significant market share in the MAV tipper segment and AMW is confident that it will grow the business with above industry growth rates.
At the inaugural function, Mr. Rao said, "We expect to gain a strong foothold in the haulage vehicles with the commissioning of PAL's facilities and are confident that transporters in the region will have access to the same high quality customer service that has been the hallmark of our offerings. PAL's reach and reputation in the region is a great asset as we enlarge our footprint in India's agricultural heartland."
The region is a major producer of agricultural commodities and is expected to be a major market for AMW's M&HCV haulage vehicles. Discerning operators are moving upwards in terms of performance parameters like fuel efficiency, payload carrying capacity, driveability, gradeability and enhanced features of comfort and safety. AMW vehicles score on all of the above factors and the dealership will help strengthen its presence across the region, as its products cover applications in a wide range of tonnages.
PAL Sales and Service is a part of the Luthra Group, an established name in Punjab, with dealerships for Cummins India Limited (Distribution Business Unit), Valvoline Cummins Limited, Ingersoll-Rand, Industrial Technologies, etc. Mr. Nishant Luthra said, "By focusing on achieving higher customer satisfaction, we are able to achieve overall growth of the group and believe that our growth comes from our customers and the satisfaction that we bring to their business with our products and services."
