Dubai, UAE – Al Nabooda Automobiles, the sole distributer of Audi, Porsche and Volkswagen in Dubai and the Northern Emirates has entered into a franchise agreement with Belron, the world’s leading vehicle glass repair and replacement group.

Al Nabooda Automobiles will set up a vehicle glass repair and replacement business in the region using the “Carglass” brand and will be supported by the expertise of the Belron group.  The terms of the agreement will see the launch of the region’s first dedicated “Carglass” branches, and Al Nabooda will develop future plans to expand within the UAE and GCC countries.

Mr K. Rajaram, CEO of Al Nabooda Automobiles said: “Belron’s dedication to quality of service directly mirrors our own attitude to giving our customers the very best in after-sales care. By partnering with Belron on this franchise agreement, we aim to provide not only Audi, Porsche and Volkswagen customers with a world-class standard in vehicle glass repair and replacement, but all car owners in the UAE as well.”

Belron has a long standing history in the global motoring industry, spanning more than 100 years. The company operates in 34 countries and strives to provide the very best quality service to the 11 million car drivers they serve annually throughout the world.

Marc Vanholst, General Manager Belron Franchising, added: “We are happy to have Al Nabooda as our franchise partner in the UAE and GCC. Al Nabooda has the same focus on service quality and customer delight which we have throughout our group. We look forward to a long lasting and successful cooperation.”

The partnership between the two organisations will see Al Nabooda Automobiles positioned as the exclusive importer of Belron tools and products.

With the first branch in Dubai, additional locations are set to open across the UAE in the near future. Targeting other countries such as Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman and Qatar, the franchise will bring quality vehicle glass repair and replacement to the GCC region.

Investment by Al Nabooda Automobiles over the last three years has created some of the region’s most impressive car dealership facilities. They include the largest Audi new car sales terminal in the world and one of the biggest Porsche Centres, both in Dubai, as well as multi-brand showroom and service centre facilities in Fujairah and Sharjah.
