LG claims new achievement in aftersales services

LG Electronics Saudi Arabia welcomed SVC managers from the MEA regions at a special event On Oct. 21 to celebrate the company’s achievement in aftersales services in the MEA region in 2015.
United Naghi and Shaker Group held the event in Jeddah from Oct. 21-22.
This was the first conference held in Saudi Arabia in more than 10 years. This time, all LG MEA subsidiaries showcased their achievements.
The conference also reviewed LG’s achievements while focusing on the company’s present and future endeavors to deliver more added values to enrich customers’ lives.
The core reason behind the conference was to highlight the dynamic benchmark role played by Shaker and United Naghi in Saudi Arabia and to showcase to what extent they provide impressive aftersales services.
Today, every LG customer is able to enjoy the same level of faster and matchless services either at United Naghi’s 19 service centers or Shaker Group’s 39 centers.
At LG, there is a firmer focus on 100 percent in-home repair, which boosts the customer’s satisfaction and convenience through the company’s toll-free hotline, call center, mobile application found in Google store or via the LG website.
Deuk Soo Ahn, president of LG Electronics Saudi Arabia, said: "We're very proud to be voted as the best player in the aftersales services over the years. We've always strived to support a solid working environment and create a greater balance among our staff, as well as foster a sense of one team community. Both United Naghi and Shaker Group are really playing vital roles that everyone is really proud of.”
A statement on behalf of the president of LG MEA service subsidiary, said: “Our proven success in offering a high level of aftersales services and our experience in creating borderless connectivity have led LG toward a sustainable growth.”

Land Rover, Terry Grant smash world record

Land Rover and international stunt driver Terry Grant smashed a world record at this week’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, with a two-wheel speed run in the new Range Rover Sport SVR. Grant’s 2:24.5 run up the famous hillclimb broke Grant’s old record for a mile traveled in a car on two wheels, set in 2011, by more than 30 seconds.
Grant flipped the Range Rover Sport SVR up on to two wheels with the use of a ramp, before hitting speeds of up 60mph on Goodwood’s famous hillclimb as he set the new Guinness World Record time.
Grant snatched the record in a dramatic last gasp attempt on Sunday afternoon, having attempted four runs earlier in the weekend, none of which Grant managed to complete.
The Range Rover Sport SVR is a 575hp performance SUV, capable of 0-60mph in 4.3 seconds and a top speed of 174mph — with four wheels on the road, at least. The Range Rover Sport only required one modification for the world record run, a tweak to its differential to allow the car to deliver more power to the two wheels on the ground — both of which were pumped up to 90PSI.
Grant is a multiple world-record holder, with 25 Guinness World Records already to his name, and with this latest record, Grant has bested a 2:55 run that he himself set at Goodwood in 2011.
Stunt driver Grant said: “It really shouldn’t be underestimated how difficult a two-wheeled speed run like this is; you are always fighting to keep the car balanced right on the edge, as it tries to tip either one way or the other. You need to be conscious of everything, from the camber of the road to the strength of the wind. Thankfully, conditions were excellent and the Range Rover Sport SVR was the perfect precision tool for the job.”
The world record was not the only amazing Land Rover moment of the Festival of Speed, as 70 historic and important Land Rovers took to the hill in what was the largest batch of cars to ever tackle the famous route in one go. From 1948 to 2018, the parade of cars celebrated 70 years of one of Britain’s most iconic automotive brands.
