Honeywell Adds Garrett Authorized Centers in North Africa for Independent Aftermarket
ALGIERS, Algeria – Feb. 29, 2016 – Honeywell (NYSE: HON) Transportation Systems, a leading global provider of automotive turbocharger technology, is bringing its global Garrett Authorized Center program to North Africa to provide local expertise in the areas of training, installation and customer service for local garages and service centers.
There are plans for three master distributors to establish new Garrett Authorized Centers in North Africa this year. Douadi Automotive and Afrique Engins in Algeria as well as Mondial Turbo in Morocco will lead the first phase of implementation for the region. Additional master distributors are being sought for extending coverage in Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia.
Garrett Master Distributors facilitating these centers of excellence have direct access to the Garrett by Honeywell product portfolio and carry significant inventory to quickly respond to local turbocharging requirements. In addition, Garrett Master Distributors can assess warranty claims, provide technical assistance, and have the ability to service every model from older T-style turbochargers to the newly launched variable geometry ball-bearing technologies.
Honeywell also developed a website (garrett.honeywell.com) to provide all installers in North Africa with tools to access the Garret portfolio without needing to go to a dealership. Installers can access technology videos, view a step-by-step installation guide, find local distributors and more.
