Front line auto company in Nigeria, Lanre Shittu Motors (LSM), which is the sole distributor of JAC heavy duty trucks in Nigeria, has reaffirmed its dominate position in the truck market segment with the delivery of JAC heavy duty trucks to Vision Scape, the globally renowned environmental company handling the Cleaner Lagos Initiative.
At a brief ceremony at LSM’s premises on the busy Oshodi-Mile 2 Expressway, the deliveries of these trucks were made by the Group Executive Director of LSM, Mr. Taiwo Shittu, and accepted by Vision Scape’s operations Manager, Mr. Sola Taiwo.
The event which was witnessed by some other industry notables and financial heads, was the first of such deliveries as LSM and Vision Scape have entered into a long term agreement for subsequent deliveries.
Taiwo Shittu stated that Vision Scape will enjoy the partnership with LSM because LSM is a One Stop shop where quality auto products are sold, as well as the offering of solid after-sales services.
Revealing that the trucks were assembled by LSM, Shittu added that “LSM is a well known company when it comes to trucks, and what stands JAC out is the truck’s chassis, coming with 12/10 mm chassis, they can withstand all manner of roads”.
He added that “JAC trucks are very rugged like European trucks, offering all its competitors offer, but coming at very pocket friendly prices, and solid after sales support”.
The Director also said LSM has trained over 100 drivers to support the scheme, and has stocked spare parts worth over N500 m to ensure hitch-free operations, even as he claimed that with JAC trucks, “there is no down time”.
He is confident that Vision Scape has joined other satisfied LSM customers like NIPCO, S.A Oladiti etc who have been fulfilled with their partnership with the company. The JAC trucks come with two years warranty/200,000 kilometers.
