Autohaus Windhoek - The Sole Distributor of Audi and MAN Vehicles and the Largest VW Dealership in Nambia

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 20, 2011) - Although JP Pretorius, Dealer Principal and Director of Autohaus Windhoek, admits customer service is very important, a quality product portfolio like Audi, VW and MAN gives the company a unique and strong selling point. "We try to innovate and put our customers first, but we also have some fantastic products to back-up our service."

Accolades and recognitions from its vehicle manufacturers have also reinforced Autohaus Windhoek's standing as a premiere distributor. "In the last three years we have received 14 VW and Audi South Africa awards, which includes South Africa and Namibian dealers," he adds.

Autohaus Windhoek currently sells around 160-170 new and pre-owned vehicles per month. "On the sales side we are quite a dominant player although Namibia is a marginal market compared to our South African neighbour," notes Pretorius. Autohaus services around 100 vehicles per day at its dealerships across Namibia, carrying around N$15 million worth of parts in order to cater for every customer's needs.

Looking forward, Autohaus Windhoek aims to work closely with VW, Audi and MAN South Africa in order to grow their respective global brands. "VW and Audi worldwide have an initiative called Mach 18," notes Pretorius. "This is to position Audi as the number one premium brand in the world and VW as the highest quality mass-manufactured vehicle company. We will obviously align ourselves with these strategies in terms of market position and penetration. This will entail high intensity marketing, visibility and training."
