Aamal Trading and Distribution, a subsidiary of Aamal Company, has officially launched Bridgestone Fleet Point centre in Doha, bringing for the first time to Qatar such a world class facility for the provision of high-quality commercial tyre services.

Sheikh Khaled bin Faisal Al Thani cut the ribbon of the new service centre on behalf of Sheikh Mohammed bin Faisal Al Thani, Vice Chairman and Managing Director of Aamal Company In the presence of a number of senior representatives of Bridgestone.

Businesses will now be able to access an affordable and efficient ‘one stop shop’ for all their truck and bus tyre related services: including tyre changing, wheel alignment and balancing and oil changes.

Well-equipped with the latest high-tech machines and professional services, Bridgestone Fleet Point centre aims to provide improved levels of tyre life, lowered rates of fuel consumption and enhanced safety for its customers’ vehicle fleets.

On this occasion, Sheikh Mohammed bin Faisal Al Thani Vice Chairman and Managing Director commented: “In Aamal, we seek to achieve sustainable growth through two main strategies; new acquisitions and organic development of existing operations. Through the opening of Bridgestone’s new fleet point, we aim to expand our operations to approach the market of heavy vehicles, and to reach out to new business channels that meet the growing demand of the market. Furthermore, we are glad to see the prosperity of our partnerships and aim to continue working hand in hand to expand our businesses according to the market’s needs.

Syed Rashid Hassan, General Manager of Aamal Trading and Distribution, added: “We are proud to introduce Qatar’s first Bridgestone Fleet Point for fleets and commercial vehicle owners. We are confident this new offering will add tremendous value to the local market whilst reinforcing our position as the market leader. The establishment of this centre bears testimony to the strong partnership that exists between Aamal Trading and Bridgestone. We are also investing further in our long-term partnership with Total Lubricants, which provides oil change services through their distinctive Rapid Oil Change (ROC) service centres; another illustration of our commitment to providing superior levels of customer service and innovative solutions for Qatari consumers.”
