- Partnership with respected dealership continues to bear fruit
- Namibian market showing green shoots after the negative impact of COVID-19 pandemic
- Providing reliable products backed up by solid aftersales service remains key
For the past 27 years, FAW Trucks has been cultivating a solid reputation for providing products that are built in South Africa, for Africa. Successfully serving markets across the continent from its hub in Coega, Gqeberha (Port Elizabeth) for a number of years, the commercial vehicle manufacturer has relaunched the brand in Namibia, aiming to reaffirm its unwavering commitment to customers in that country.
FAW Trucks found a reliable home with Africa Commercial Vehicles (ACV), a leading force in the Namibian commercial vehicle market, in 2018. As one of the country’s most reputable dealers, ACV has been providing consistently high levels of customer service and aftersales support from its premises in Windhoek, and as a result the FAW Trucks brand has flourished.
ACV was first established in 1996 and has, since then, grown into a well-respected entity. It has always been at the leading edge of doing business and in 2014 became the first vehicle dealership in Namibia to adopt a cloud-based data management system. Since becoming the authorised FAW Trucks dealership, the business has expanded to such an extent that it had to move to larger premises.
Apart from handling sales, ACV’s 1 850 m2 facility, located next to the B1 national highway, houses a workshop consisting of 18 work bays, four electric lifts and two 16-metre
