Al-Futtaim Automotive opens state-of-the-art sustainable Auto Park in Al Ain
Facility will feature vehicles from its leading automotive brands including Toyota, Lexus, Honda, Chrysler, Dodge and RAM
In line with its customer-centric approach and commitment to enriching the lives of its customers every day, Al-Futtaim Automotive announced today its expanded footprint in the UAE with the opening of a state-of-the-art Auto Park in Al Ain. Measuring at 120,749 sq ft, the facility will bring together new and pre-owned cars from its leading automotive brands. The facility perfectly reflects Al-Futtaim’s new standards of corporate identity which is being implemented across all its brands to further strengthen their equity globally.
After eight years of extensive research to fully understand the growth of Al Ain City, which included robust customer research, Al-Futtaim Automotive selected the location due to its proximity to the expected growth area of Al Ain, its accessibility and traffic flow. The project is the first automotive facility to operate all brands under one roof, as well as being the only multistory automotive facility in Al Ain which can hold almost 70 new and used cars on both floors, providing customers in Al Ain and its surrounding areas with as much as choice as possible to find the perfect car for them. Underscoring Al-Futtaim’s commitment to contribute to the UAE’s sustainability vision, the facility operates with over 30% solar system, the only one within Abu Dhabi to do so.
Commenting on the opening, Vincent Wijnen, Senior Managing Director, Al-Futtaim Automotive said: “We are committed to bringing our customers vehicles of the highest quality, at international standards, with a customer-centric and value-adding business approach that enables us to be the automotive company of choice across all of the territories in which we operate. Al-Futtaim’s entrepreneurship and relentless customer focus enables us to continue to grow and expand; responding to the changing needs of our customers to be able to deliver on our promise of enriching every day. It is with this in mind that we wanted to ensure we could get closer to more of our customers in the UAE by opening our Al Ain Auto Park and we can’t wait to welcome you.”
