Tata International MD, Mr NN Tata, attended the launch of six next-generation Prima heavy commercial vehicles in Uganda. The event was organised by the Distribution team of Tata International (TIL) in partnership with Tata Motors, in Kampala, Uganda, on April 29, 2015.
Tata Africa Holdings Uganda, a TIL subsidiary, is the sole distributor of Tata Motors commercial vehicles in the country. Mr Xavier Gobille, Executive Director – Auto & Allied Distribution, Tata Africa Holdings; Mr S Kundra, Country Manager, Uganda; and Mr RT Wasan, Head – International Business, Commercial Vehicles Business Unit, Tata Motors, were among those present on the occasion.
An ISO 9001:2008 certified company, Tata Africa Holdings Uganda provides full-fledged after-sales support services. The fully stocked spare parts store and modern workshop are manned by a professional team of qualified mechanics and technicians who are available at all times to serve the clients both at the workshop and at their premises, including upcountry locations. To further ease the reach to clients, the company has embarked on a country-wide service network set-up and is present in key locations across the country with the same promise of quality and service as would be found at its head office in Kampala.
The launch of these vehicles, with different combinations of drivelines, meeting end-user requirements for varied applications in the tipper and cargo segments, marks continued efforts towards changing the trucking landscape and rough roads in Uganda. Setting new benchmarks in styling and features, the next-generation Tata Prima is a combination of power, world-class performance, fuel efficiency, superior technology and safety. The truck has been built with technical inputs from across the world and is also referred to as the ‘World truck’ by Tata Motors.
