Open your own SAC branch

2007-09-11 12:13
Steves Auto Clinic, the country's leading performance enhancement specialists have opportunities available in certain areas for the opening of new SAC branches.

A Steves Auto Clinic store has become a highly sought after business for those who appreciate the advantages that come from being part of an established and highly successful franchise chain.

Boasting 24 years of experience, utilising state of the art equipment and only employing the best on offer, has seen the SAC Group remain the industry leaders for more than two decades.

With an approach that is distinctly different from what is often associated with the car service industry, SAC Holdings and its dealers are at the forefront of providing a holistic solution for South African motoring consumers.

According to Steve Fischer, the founder of SAC, the local aftermarket for engine conversions and optimisation turns over some R5m per month, of which SAC accounts for approximately half. Nationwide, the organisation's outlets enhances about 600 engines per month, and including routine jobs, deals with some 3 000 customers each month.

Because of this, SAC Holdings has taken a proactive approach to business aspects as diverse as staff training, innovative aftermarket warranties and guarantees, research and development, product testing, the provision of courtesy cars, and monitoring customer satisfaction. While this may not sound unusual in the world of the franchised dealer and the original equipment manufacturer, it is certainly very unusual in the aftermarket arena.

And now offering a fully equipped and dedicated in house, Research and Development Centre, SAC is ready to grow and power ahead, well into the 21st century. Dedicated to succeed, SAC provides each of its branches with access to a full range of products, services and support structures to ensure success in the competitive world of servicing, tuning, and optimising modern motor vehicles.

And they want you to be a part of this growth...
