By Jeff Osborne
Good Morning Ladies & Gentlemen,
I have been invited to provide a perspective from a Retail Motor Industry point of view, and I’m very grateful to Ramsay Media for giving me the opportunity. Right at the outset, I think it is important to make the point that whilst NAAMSA, NAACAM and RMI represent the broader SA Automotive Industry, there are some very clear distinctions between the role players, although, it is of course a reality that there are more similarities than differences, particularly when it comes to the very theme of this conference, i.e. adapting for success in a changing market. The majority of past changes and those yet to come, do impact on all sectors.
We have experienced our share of good times and bad times, but have always proven our versatility and ability to survive.
Fuel, Franchise Dealers, Tyre dealers,
Independent workshops, Motor Body repairer etc.
All the previously mentioned challenges impact in different ways upon the various sectors
