This new facility will double the brand’s servicing capacity in comparison to its previous facility, providing service space for 30 trucks and 12 body repairs. The number of technicians has also increased substantially from 21 to 39.
The workshop is expected to contribute to strengthening UD Trucks’ market share by providing sustainable aftersales services, while Al Masaood will continue to provide the highest standards of support to UD Trucks customers on a larger scale.
