January 24th 2013, Bengaluru: Mahindra First Choice Services Ltd., India's leading multi-brand car workshop company, today made a foray in Bengaluru with the launch of its first workshop located at Bellanduru. It was inaugurated by Mr. Rajeev Dubey, President (Group HR, Corporate Services & After-Market) & Member of the Group Executive Board, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd.
The workshop is spread across 18000 sq. ft and boasts of a shop floor consisting of 15 bays with a capacity to service 1000+ cars of various brands per month.
"We are delighted to launch our first workshop in Bengaluru. As the leader in the multi-brand car workshop business in India, we are constantly endeavouring to provide customers with services which will provide them with greater value and convenience. This workshop is one step in that direction. It will function as a one-stop-shop for any brand of cars which need to be serviced or repaired. This is part of our strategy to address the after-market requirements of the entire category of car owners, irrespective of the brand that they own," said Mr. Dubey.
The city of Bengaluru has a car population of close to 7.5 lakhs. MFCS believes that the servicing needs of this population are not being met by existing players in the market and hence, this presents the company with a good opportunity for entry in this market.
