Weststar Associates Limited and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) have resolved to “mutually terminate its distributorship agreement.”
Under the arrangement, with effect from Monday, 5th December 2017, Weststar will no longer distribute the FCA brands (Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, RAM and Fiat).
According to the Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of Weststar Associates Limited, Mr. Mirko Plath, the mutual arrangement between both parties “is in line with Weststar’s plans to provide undivided focus to the Mercedes-Benz brand as it embarks on an increased business scale of activities in the coming year.”
Making reference to customers that have purchased FCA vehicles, Plath was quoted as saying “Weststar owes a duty to continue to support its customers with after-sales services for the Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, RAM and Fiat vehicles until a new distributor is announced by FCA.”
Plath said: “We reassure our valued customers of our unfailing commitment to continue to provide excellent services as always, however the distributorship for the FCA brands in Nigeria will be announced anytime soon.”
Plath “expressed his gratitude to the company’s long-standing customers and business partners as he looks forward to more successful business years ahead for Weststar.”
