Addressing the gathering at the conference, Heinrich Schromm stated: “I am pleased to state that DIMO is undoubtedly the benchmark in the region for all Daimler General Distributor Markets, and it is impressive to note that DIMO has even surpassed certain aspects of Daimler Market Performance Centre (MPC) operations.”

Expressing his views, DIMO Chairman & Managing Director Ranjith Pandithage stated: “We are delighted to host the Mercedes-Benz SEAII After-Sales Management Meeting 2018. This is the ideal platform for all of us in the region to come together and discuss in detail about how even the best after-sales services offered to Mercedes-Benz customers can be further improved. It also gives us an ideal opportunity to showcase the world-class facilities that we have put together here in Sri Lanka.”
