Münster/Kuwait. Glasurit GmbH, a subsidiary of BASF Coatings, is the new system and service partner of Fouad Al-Ghanim & Sons Automotive Company in Kuwait, the official importer for the Volkswagen, Audi, Skoda and Lamborghini brands in Kuwait. The Glasurit importer in Kuwait, Al-Nizamia Combined Co., is particularly pleased that his company has been selected as a new partner by the respected firm of Fouad Al-Ghanim & Sons and hopes that the partnership will last for many years.

The selection process that Fouad Al-Ghanim & Sons went through in making their decision to choose Glasurit put the importers of all of the major automotive refinish brands in Kuwait in competition with each other. Managing Director James McKenzie, General After Sales Manager Irfan Tansel and Accident Repair Center Manager Colin Biott explain that there were various reasons why Glasurit came out on top.

"For one, it was decisive that Glasurit offers high-quality products approved by Volkswagen; secondly, it was important for us to find a professional, service-oriented supplier who helps us to be successful in our business," explains Irfan Tansel.

For Arie Verboon, Export Manager at Glasurit, the decision by Fouad Al-Ghanim & Sons Automotive Company underscores the importance of providing good service in the refinish sector: "The success of Glasurit is due to the fact that we provide extensive service 'round the can'. We offer our customers optimal technical support and service at the highest level. Demanding customers such as Fouad Al- Ghanim & Sons Automotive Company expect this," says Verboon, and adds: "What sets Glasurit apart from its competitors is that we also contribute our know-how when it comes to optimizing processes in our customers' businesses, since in the final analysis the customer's success is our success."
