WHEN THE Indian arm of global automobile giant Toyota decided to set up a fully integrated showroom and workshop in the capital, they probably had no second thoughts on the person to inaugurate the facility.

Sachio Yamazaki, the dynamic managing director of Toyota Kirloskar flew down from Bangalore for the opening of the showroom at Kazhakuttom. Mr.Yamazaki who made his mark as a thorough professional at Toyota Motors, Japan is known for taking the fight right into the camp of the company's rivals in India. Under his leadership, Toyota India redefined the benchmark for quality in automobile manufacturing.

Named 3S (sales, service and spares), the new facility located in a sprawling ground near the Technopark has been set up to cater to the needs of the increasing number of Toyota customers in the city. Built to international standards, it boasts of an impressive showroom and a fully integrated mechanised workshop and paint booth.

Addressing a press conference after the inauguration, Mr.Yamazaki announced plans to enter the car market by launching two models. Will this lead to another redefinition of standards in the automobile market in India ?
