Toyota Kenya sets up shop in Kisumu

NAIROBI, Kenya, Sep 28 – Toyota Kenya has deepened its countrywide network by opening a branch in Kisumu to serve the western part including surrounding areas of Muhoroni, Siaya, Maseno and Kakamega.

Through an exclusive partnership with Crater Automobiles (CAL), the firm has opened Kisumu Toyota.

The partnership will see CAL handle the sale of new Toyota vehicles, genuine parts as well as offer quality after-sales services.

With the addition of Kisumu Toyota, Toyota Kenya branches and dealers are now spread across nine towns across Kenya with further plans to spread its network to Meru and Garissa early next year.

Toyota Kenya Managing Director Hylton Bannon said the company had witnessed exponential growth in customers in Kisumu and its environs in the last couple of years prompting the move.

“In bringing the services closer to our customers, we have invested in an upgrade of the facility as well as intensive staff training to equip them with the requisite skills and professionalism that is required to provide Toyota standards in service delivery,” Bannon said.

Toyota Kenya is the sole distributor of Toyota and Yamaha brands. It is also the leading motor vehicle distributor in Kenya, a position it has held for the past seven years.

Kisumu Mayor Samuel Okello applauded the company’s decision to set up shop in the town.

“The growing investor confidence in Kisumu region is an indicator of the region’s economic revival, and the decision by Toyota Kenya to set up this dealership here is a testament to that fact,” he said.

Crater Group Managing Director M. N Khan reiterated his company’s commitment to continued excellence in service provision for the Toyota customer.
