The opening of the showroom located on the ICD Road, adjacent to Mombasa road, comes after the company opened an plant in Mombasa that will assemble about 300 trucks per year and about 5,000 units in 5 years time.

IVECO and GMC plans to start production of the new Stralis X-Way truck designed for construction logistics, at the Mombasa assembly plant later in the year.

"We chose Kenya for our investment because it is one of the most advanced countries in Africa and the services that we need for the trucks such as maintenance and asset financing are available here," said Marco Torta, Area Manager for East Africa during the opening of the ceremony.

Torta said the showroom has been designed to provide customers with Sales, Service and Spare Part services.
