Commenting on the occasion, Vijay Khorgade, Head of ZF Aftermarket India, ZF India Pvt Ltd, said, “It gave us great pleasure to be displaying ZF’s top class components for passenger vehicles and commercial vehicles at ACMA Expo this year. North-East region which has approximately 1 million vehicles, accounts for 1.7 per cent of the total vehicle population in the country where roadways are the primary mode of transportation for passengers and goods. By participating in ACMA Aftermarket Expo, we hoped to procure good business opportunities and cater to the rising demands for auto components in the north east region as the replacement demand for auto components is higher because of the wear and tear undergone due to hilly terrain and heavy rainfall in the remote areas”
ACMA Aftermarket Expo 2017 provided an excellent opportunity for auto companies to tap into the huge aftermarket in the North-East region. It was also a platform to connect with buyers from India’s neighboring countries in the region like Bhutan, Nepal, Myanmar and Bangladesh.
