SKF Zambia is proud to announce the recent signing of a new partnership agreement with Autoworld as their premium vehicle aftermarket Industrial Distributor in a bid to enhance the complete customer service offering and experience throughout the country.
“SKF as a global brand does not compromise on product and service quality so we are very careful when selecting business partners to join us on our journey of continuous improvement,” says Malcom Rahman, Distributor Development and Vehicle Aftermarket Manager at SKF Zambia. “Autoworld is one of largest automotive distributors in Zambia and shares our mission, norms and values in continually striving to offer top quality, efficient and reliable products and services. We recognise Autoworld as a like-minded business that ticks all the right boxes. SKF is an industry leader and aligning ourselves with another market leader like Autoworld, gives us the confidence that the distributor partnership will be sustainable and successful for both companies.”

The quality SKF brand is a perfect fit for Autoworld, as a foremost stockist and supplier of premium quality automotive and marine products, for close on 30 years.
