Abdullah Abdulghani & Bros. Co. W.L.L. (AAB), one of Qatar’s pioneering business families, is celebrating their diamond jubilee this year. AAB was founded in 1958 and has established its name as a company with sound business practices and ethics.
In 1964, AAB was awarded Toyota dealership rights, followed by Lexus dealership rights in 1990.
With more than 50 years of partnership with Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC), Dr. Nasser Al Abdulghani, chairman of AAB, said: “We enjoy an excellent relationship with TMC. Our long-term partnership is based on shared values, which is reflected in our guiding principles of the “Customer FIRST” philosophy — Fairness, Integrity, Respect, Superior Performance and Teamwork. From the very beginning, TMC has been committed in working together with AAB to enhance our business operations and technical expertise.”
As part of the Customer Service Enhancement program, Toyota and Lexus showrooms are open seven days a week. AAB has also opened eight service centers in different parts of the country with a call center that is operational 24 hours from Saturday to Thursday. AAB is fully committed to provide the best ownership experience to its valued customers by implementing various strategies involving business operations, employee skill enhancement and engagement programs.
“As the largest automotive distributor in the country, we have a responsibility to continually set high standards,” said Dr. Nasser.
AAB has extended its vehicle operations to include rental cars and leasing for short or long-term periods, and today encompasses the Pre-owned Vehicles Division. It has also diversified into heavy equipment through the Commercial and Industrial Division, which includes other Japanese partners such as Toyo-ta & BT Material Handling Equipment, Kawasaki, Kansai Paint and Sumitomo.
As a responsible corporate citizen committed to the development of Qatar, AAB supports major events organized by the government and initiates activities that support the Qatar 2030 Vision geared toward sports, educational and environmental development.
