DT Dobie has announced the acquisition of the Sinotruk franchise, an addition to its renowned stable of brands. Adding the brand to the business is part of DT Dobie’s diversification strategy to grow its market share.
Sino brand consists of the prime mover, tipper, concrete mixer, and rigid trucks, the ideal partner for logistics, construction, mining, manufacturing, horticulture, and humanitarian services among other key sectors in the country.
‘‘Kenya, in the recent past, has experienced an increase in demand for the Sinotruk as a result of consumer trust in the brand. An alternative cost-friendly prime mover. The truck has been at the forefront of truck innovation and design over the past years. Today the range offers technologically advanced products, all designed to provide operators with the highest level of performance, comfort, and reliability coupled with low costs,’’ said Chris Ndala, DT Dobie Managing Director.
Further adding that the Kenya Government’s ban on second-hand trucks has reduced the country’s dependence on grey imports and encouraged companies to acquire locally assembled vehicles to help protect the environment and reduce environmental pollution.
This he emphasizes has buyers getting the satisfaction of knowing that the units provide a longer period of operation before they reach the mileage of imported second-hand trucks, hence a higher return on investment.
Sinotruk is built with a powerful engine, excellent structure, high dependability, and exceptional cost-performance are some advantages that add to the value of the truck. Modern engineering allows the truck engine to operate up to 100,000 kilometers without deforming.
‘‘The Sino truck sets a new performance and fuel efficiency benchmark. The transport business has become increasingly competitive and fuel consumption ensures minimum operational costs. The advanced-level trucks are built to operate in extreme conditions and on any terrain with cutting-edge safety features. It also saves your time by maintaining an optimum speed that complements your needs,’’ added Chris.
DT Dobie offers driver training upon the purchase of a truck to ensure complete comprehension of the features and operations of the vehicle.
Aftersales service is available through quality servicing and repairs carried out by our factory-trained technicians who are backed by a comprehensive stock of spares. Customers will enjoy servicing their trucks across the East African region under the CFAO group.
