We are proud to announce that our JLM distribution network continues to expand. Our newest distributor, Kingfisher Automotive from Singapore, will perform a very important regional role for JLM in Southeast Asia.
A Dream Candidate
Kingfisher Automotive distributes all known premium German automotive parts brands. JLM, the only non-German brand, was recently added to the Kingfisher portfolio. Kingfisher Automotive knows the market, its customers and have a network at their disposal. They have everything. The only thing missing was a proper additive. With the arrival of JLM, the picture is complete. Kingfisher was at the top of the distributor wish list, ergo the dream candidate. From a logistic point of view, Singapore is the best location to act as a distribution point. Southeast Asia, Japan, Korea and Taiwan are the major growth markets. Being JLM, that is where you want to be.
Strategically, Southeast Asia is of paramount importance for JLM. Many people live there and the market is huge. Products from Germany, closely followed by Dutch products, also enjoy a towering reputation. Due to the economy picking up in Southeast Asia, an increasing number of European cars is imported – they are considered a status symbol, a luxury item. This luxury calls for products that fit in seamlessly – something JLM products manage like no other.
"Southeast Asia has many developing economies with a relatively young automotive history, presenting us with a huge untapped market potential. We are constantly looking for quality products for our customers in this region. Quality products that help car owners and simultaneously boost the professional image of workshops. We are very fortunate to have met Mr. Gilbert of JLM Lubricants, a company that shares our quality standards."
