KUWAIT CITY, March 28: The administrative Court of Appeal affirmed a first instance judgment in favor of Alghanim Auto confirming the validity of its registration with the Ministry of Industry and Commerce as a Ford distributor in Kuwait.
The judgment dated March 27, 2017 reinstates Alghanim Auto’s registration as an officially authorized distributor of Ford vehicles and products in Kuwait from March 2016. Additionally, the court ruled that the Ministry of Commerce and Industry’s decision to revoke such registration is illegal and therefore annulled.
Ford Motor Company had appointed Alghanim Auto to be the authorized distributor for Ford in Kuwait, to sell new Ford vehicles and provide aftersales support and warranty repairs, as well as genuine Motorcraft ® and Ford spare parts for Ford and Lincoln customers in Kuwait.
Alghanim Auto had established Ford-compliant sales and aftersales facilities, which include a new vehicle showroom, service and spare parts center that is located in the Shuwaikh Industrial Area opposite to SIRBB circuit, and is operated by a highly qualified team of employees and Ford-certified technicians.
It is noteworthy to mention that since the agreement between Alghanim Auto and Ford Motor Company last year, Alghanim Auto has committed to providing service excellence to Ford and Lincoln customers in Kuwait including warranty repairs and honoring Ford Extended Service Plans (ESP), irrespective of their start dates.
