One-stop shop for heavy-duty repairs
ExxonMobil and its authorised distributor in South Africa, Centlube, have joined forces with Michelin Truck Service Centre (MTSC) and Laser Fast Truck & Trailer Wheel Alignment (Truck Stop) to add a new and exciting dimension to the truck stop concept in Meyerton.
MTSC Laser Fast is a one-stop service centre for heavy-duty vehicles, where repairs and checks – including brake testing, equipment, and oil changing – will be undertaken. In addition, the service centre will now add ExxonMobil and Centlube products to its offerings.
The 2 450 m² workshop consists of parking for 50 trucks, eight fully equipped mobile wheel-alignment units and six highly trained local wheel-alignment technicians. Each technician also has a trained assistant to perform wheel alignment to specifications.
Henry Young, MD of Laser Fast Truck & Trailer Wheel Alignment, says: “By combining the expertise of Michelin and ExxonMobil to expand our workshop, we can now provide our customers with some of the world’s leading brands supported by unparalleled service.
“Together we can strengthen our position as industry experts by providing an unrivalled offering in the wheel and tyre fitment and lubricant markets.”
Gaganjot Singh, commercial director of Michelin Tyre Company South Africa, says: “Our ‘one-stop shop’ concept focuses on tyre-related services for the truck and bus industry and on diversifying into products and services that vehicles may need. That is why we couldn’t pass an opportunity to partner with ExxonMobil.”
Clint Nickall, CEO of Centlube, notes: “We were first on Michelin’s list when they were looking for a partner to make this truck stop one of a kind. This was thanks to ExxonMobil’s worldwide reputation and technologically advanced products.”
ExxonMobil field marketing adviser, Andreas Hadjidimitriadis comments: “Together we can build an unrivalled offering in the lubricant market and strengthen our position as industry experts.”
Singh concludes: “Michelin Tyre Company South Africa is excited to partner with Laser Fast Truck and Trailer Alignment. Our goal is to ensure that we always meet our customers’ needs. Hence we strive to demonstrate our responsiveness, passion and innovative capabilities through quality products, cost-effective solutions and increased safety.”
