Castrol launches its flagship BikeZone in Hyderabad
Speaking at the launch, Mr Naveen Kshatriya, Managing Director, Castrol India Limited said, “Castrol India is a successful business which is driven by strong brands, enduring relationships, and the power of its people. We have been a driving force of India’s lubricant industry, having been providing high technology and quality products to Indian consumers for almost 100 years now. During this period, we have been acknowledged as the technology leaders and pioneers in lubricant technology and the BikeZones have been launched with the objective of extending our relationship with our consumers ‘beyond lubricants’.
The BikeZone business was launched based on feedback we received from our consumers who were looking to Castrol to build on their reputation for providing high quality products to providing high quality servicing. It seemed to be an obvious progression and given the fast growth in the two wheeler population, there is already a shortfall in the servicing industry. By entering this segment, we hope to fill this gap and provide consumers high quality of service backed by the trusted Castrol brand. The BikeZones also provide an opportunity for local entrepreneurs to participate in an exciting venture, in turn providing job opportunities to the local mechanics.”
According to Mr. Mubeenuddin – Vice President, Castrol BikeZone, “Today, in Hyderabad, we are proud to announce the launch of our first professional BikeZone format which is a milestone for Castrol and reinforces our position in the forefront of innovation, and technology.”
The flagship service centre has some unique features which are not available anywhere else in the country. Besides the general 3-lean service menu options which are available at all Castrol BikeZones – Gold, Silver and Bronze, the Kukatpally BikeZone has the Turbulator - an automated bike cleaning system which ensures consistency in washing, better quality of bike wash and reduces the washing time from twenty five minutes to ten minutes. This is a new technology designed and developed by Castrol. This BikeZone also has a water recycling facility and this ensures that there is optimum usage of water thus reducing water requirements by two-thirds.
