Avtoland Holding to change sales policy

25 September 2009 (11:29)

‘We are going to have our sales policy modified because of the recent market changes,’ Avtoland Holding Management Company’s Marketing and Advertising Director Svetlana Petrovikh said to an UrBC reporter.

Avtoland Holding used to be Ford Motor Company’s only official dealer in Yekaterinburg, but the car manufacturer recently selected Okami and Avtosan as its local dealers as well.

‘Ford Motor Company keeps opening tenders for new dealers in Yekaterinburg every year, so two new dealers have been chosen this time. Avtoland feels this is a good thing. We believe in fair competition,’ Petrovikh observed.

Meanwhile, the European Business Association reports Ford’s Russian sales dropped by 54.08% in January-August 2009 against a year earlier.
