Diversified firm Art Corporation last week launched a new division, Auto Express, aimed at creating value and providing total motor vehicle solutions to the local market.
The company said the new division would result in improved revenue inflows of the group which have been facing challenges in recent years.
Speaking at the official opening of the first Auto Express branch in Harare on Friday, marketing director of Chloride Zimbabwe, a division of Art Corporation, Edward Muchuchuti, said: “Auto Express envisages being a perfect one-stop-shop model for motor vehicle accessories that include batteries, oils, filters, shock absorbers, tyres, brake pads and others.
“Auto Express intends to open more branches in the central business district and other major cities thereby bringing motor vehicle solutions to the door steps of the motoring public.”
In addition to their service, the division also intends to distribute energy related solutions such as solar modules, inverters and other accessories.
Art is the holding company of Kadoma Board and Paper Mills, Fleximail, Eversharp, Chloride, Intertrade, Softex, Battery Express and National Waste Collections.
