Abou Ghaly Motors is now local agent of Geely

Geely cars will now be sold in Egypt by Abou Ghaly Motors: Chinese carmaker Geely Auto has inked an agreement with local agent Abou Ghaly Motors to sell its vehicles in Egypt, less than a fortnight after splitting from GB Auto, Geely announced in a statement (pdf) yesterday. The two companies have entered into an “official cooperative partnership” that will see Abou Ghaly become the primary distributor of Geely cars in the Egyptian market.

Abou Ghaly is the local distributor of a number of global auto brands, including Mercedes-Benz, Jeep, Alfa Romeo, Chrysler, Dodge, Subaru and Ram.

GB Auto parted ways with Geely after introducing it to the market: The move comes less than two weeks after GB Auto announced (pdf) that it would not renew its distribution agreement with Geely, citing “strategic reasons.” GB Auto had been Geely’s local agent since 2012.
