Cockpit, the tire and car maintenance service center with full-circuit service, under Bridgestone, opened 4 new branches in the first half of the year. This drove its consistent leadership and can be viewed as an invasion into the central and eastern provincial markets, expanding services for increased customer convenience.
At the beginning, the first branch was Cockpit Muay Auto Tire Express, at Lotus Chanthaburi, followed by the second branch; Cockpit City Park Auto Service at the Ayutthaya City Park shopping center; and the third branch, Cockpit Map Ta Phut in Rayong Province, which opened in April. Mr. Tanawat Kittirattanaporn, Managing Director of Bridgestone A.C.T. (Thailand) Co., Ltd., attended the official opening ceremony at Cockpit Map Ta Phut branch.
Mr. Tanawat Kittirattanaporn said, “Rayong is one of the provinces which is an important economic area in the eastern region and eastern shore development project for industrial area. We choose an area that is convenient for travel and relaxation, and ready to serve the customers who arrive to use the services at Lotus supermarket in Map Ta Phut and its nearby areas.”
