In adding Auto Excellence, TEMOT says it reinforces its network in Jordan and the region and gains access to one of the best and most developed sales organizations for automotive spare parts in the Middle East. Auto Excellence for Service & Parts Co. is part of the highly respected and diversified Al Zafer Group and supplies more than 1,000 customers in its domestic market, as well as in Iraq and Palestine.
With approximately 7.1 million citizens, rising per capita incomes and 55 percent of inhabitants aged below 25 years, Jordan – one of the so-called “upper middle income” countries – is a promising region. According to the Jordan Times, the country imported used cars worth about 740 million Jordan dinar (approximately $1 billion USD) in 2015, up 16.5 percent from 2014. Cars and spare parts make up 10 percent of the country’s total imports, according to figures from Germany Trade & Invest.
In this environment, Auto Excellence has been one of the leading service and parts distributors to the automotive aftermarket for almost 60 years. The privately held company specializes in parts for European trucks while also focusing on spare parts for European and Korean passenger cars. With more than 20 leading international brands already in its portfolio and 150 trained employees, the company is committed to supplying high-quality products to more than 1,000 customers from a number of local branches. Auto Excellence operates four warehouses with a total capacity of 8,400 square meters (over 90,000 square feet), one on-site at its headquarters in Bayader (Amman) and three additional locations in Sahab (Amman), Irbid and Zarqa.
“We are proud to welcome Auto Excellence joining TEMOT International Family,” said Fotios Katsardis, president and CEO of TEMOT International. “Auto Excellence has already been working with many suppliers of TEMOT International, underlining the company’s clear strategy and focus on high-quality relationships and full customer satisfaction. The cooperation between TEMOT International and Auto Excellence will be of great advantage for the two companies as well as for the many customers in the region who will profit of an even enhanced offering of products and services.”
