Dubai, UAE: Arabian Automobiles Company (AAC) has become the first automotive distributor in the UAE to be recognised with the prestigious Dubai Quality Gold Award, which reflects the commitment of the entire organisation to delivering the highest standards of excellence to all stakeholders.
Commenting on the award, Mr. Khalid Al Rostamani – Vice Chairman, AW Rostamani Group – said: “I would like to extend our gratitude to H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, for his visionary leadership and guidance, which has paved the way for organisations to implement the latest technologies and processes, and to embrace the culture of excellence that has ultimately strengthened the UAE’s position as a global leader in the international business community.
I dedicate this achievement to the spirit of our Late Chairman Mr. Abdul Wahid Al Rostamani, whose passion for quality was unparalleled. He was also the driving force for motivating the entire organisation to deliver outstanding results to the highest standards.”
Arabian Automobiles Company is the first automotive organisation in the country to win the top quality award instituted by Dubai Economy. The achievement is a strong endorsement of the continuous focus placed on operational excellence, which has established Arabian Automobiles as the most awarded automotive distributor in the region. The company has previously been awarded prestigious accolades including the Dubai Quality Award (2014), Palladium Hall of Fame for Strategy Execution (2013) and Mohammad bin Rashid Al Maktoum Business Award for Most Outstanding Performance (2015).
