Joseph Mulenga has been a security guard at Autoworld for the last 10 years. He retired last month and was presented with parting gifts from Autoworld staff members. Everyone knows him as “Zemule”.

For many years Mr Mulenga has been part of Autoworld life, watching over the vehicles and outside premises, and helping around the fitment center with various jobs. He has always been helpful to members of staff; and on his retirement, some of the Autoworld team had the idea of buying him a Christmas present to say thank you. This was all in the spirit of giving around this festive season. The gifts were presented on Dec 24 2018, Christmas Eve. Joseph is a man of few words but we were happy to put a smile on his face. He did not expect this and it was a wonderful surprise for him. His present included a monetary gift and a Christmas hamper of assorted items.

Joseph Mulenga is a family man with five children and four grandchildren. He managed to build a house before he retired. We all wished him well at the presentation and urged him to continue to support his family.

Autoworld admin team hits the water. By Annie Zulu

For the administration team at Autoworld’s head office in Lusaka, 2018 has been a very busy year of serious hard work. But all that was forgotten on 15th December as the team set off from Kafue River Cliff on a two-hour ‘Lady Betty’ cruise. Christmas had begun!

A very relaxed team of Autoworld staff with Director Glenn Findlay. Don’t be cheated by those innocent looking faces! We got to see their other side as the event progressed ...

While the ‘Lady Betty’ glided along the beautiful Kafue River, everyone joined in the fun ...

Annabel gently follows the tune and softly goes with the flow, like a model … The whole body moves and feels the rhythm. Josais was speechless, all he could do was say, “Ha!!”

Andrew Malembeka could not meet the Director’s moves as you can see. Go Andrew go! Everyone cheered them on … Sepiso wanted to overdo Freddy, with ‘Dombolo style by Sepiso’. It was a great time of dancing and laughter.

Later we all sat down together, had a sumptuous meal, and played ‘the alphabet game’. You think people know their ABC?? Did you know that “B” is for jowboints (meaning ball joints) “Z” is for zebruary and “U” is for Europe”? Oh la la! But finally, we had a winner - Gopal - and he deserves a trophy because it was not easy.

At the end of the day, we had a very Merry Autoworld Christmas.

Wishing you all a very happy new year, full of laughter.

Autoworld and the 2018 Labour Day celebrations

Labour Day 1.jpg

1st May is Labour Day, which is renowned internationally. In Zambia our theme for this year was ‘Building Partnerships for Sustainable National Development Through Job Creation and Social Justice’. With jobs having become so scarce, especially for the youth, this theme was very timely.
 
The Guest of honour was H.E. President Edgar Lungu who took the salute from the enthusiastic marching workers.

Autoworld had two employees awarded prizes - Ms Ruth Sakala , from Head Office, for honesty;  and Mr Isilimwe Mulambwa of Ndola branch, also for honesty. In addition, Autoworld won a trophy for coming second in the Float Category for the display on the Autoworld speed boat. Congratulations to everyone involved!

Truck and Bus Tyres offer - on all Triangle and Doublestar tyres

Calling all truckers and bus companies in Zambia. A massive 20% off all Triangle and Doublestar tyres while stocks last.

Three reasons why you should replace worn out tyres:

  • Tyre treads provide the traction necessary to grip wet or oily roads
  • Tyre treads help keep your tyres cool, reducing the risk of blowouts
  • Tyre treads help keep your tyres inflated. Low pressure tyres can’t grip the road as well, making it harder to steer the vehicle, harder to brake, and increasing fuel costs.

What better time than now to replace fleet vehicle tyres - with this amazing 20% discount offer from Autoworld!

2018 - May - Monthly_Special.jpg

Tyre offer - on all Goodyear, Continental, Bridgestone and Pirelli tyres

Calling all motorists in Zambia. A study was carried out by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in the US. They found that over 26% of the crashes studied involved vehicles with insufficient tread i.e. with worn out tyres*. 

Here are more reasons why you should replace worn out tyres:

  • Tyre treads provide the traction necessary to grip wet or oily roads
  • Tyre treads help keep your tyres cool, This helps to prevent blowouts, when you can loose control of the car, especially if you're speeding
  • Tyre treads help keep your tyres at the right pressure. Under-inflated tyres can’t grip the road properly even in dry conditions, making it harder to steer your vehicle and harder to brake,  and reducing fuel mileage (increasing your fuel costs).

What better time than now to replace your tyres - with an amazing 15% discount offer from Autoworld!

Autoworld celebrates Women's Day, by Annie Zulu

Team Autoworld on the road on 8th March 2018, International Women's Day

Team Autoworld on the road on 8th March 2018, International Women's Day

Womens Day comes around so fast! On this special day, 8th March each year, Zambia celebrates women’s achievements and seeks to inspire young women to come forward and exercise their choice freely. The whole day is dedicated to empowering women. The theme for the 2018 Womens Day in Zambia was ‘Transforming Women’s Lives‘.

Background

In 1975 the United Nations declared 8th March as the official date for International Womens Day. Over 30 countries including Zambia have marked that date on their annual calendar as a public holiday. In support of gender parity goals, in 2015 the Zambian government passed the Gender Equity and Equality Bill which established the Gender Equity and Equality Commision. The purpose of that body is to promote gender equity, gender equality and integration of both sexes in society, and work towards the elimination of all forms of discrimination against women.
 

Autoworld’s gender equity achievements

Autoworld has not been left behind. We are proud to have on our team Annabel Zulu (HR Manager),  Rupa Parikh (Internal Auditor), Phenny Kosamu (Auto Technician at Woodlands Branch), and Faides Phiri (Auto Electrics Supervisor at Downtown Branch), amongst many other valued female employees.
 

A happy time for all, recorded on our phones :)

Team Autoworld celebrates Womens Day 2018

The temperatures that morning was extremely high, such that some ladies had to use their umbrellas to protect themselves from the heat.  We had three gentlemen who kindly agreed to support the women. You can see them proudly holding the banner as we marched through the streets of Lusaka. (We definitely need to work together to move forward in development and transform the world to a better place.)

Glenn Findlay, Autoworld Director, together with his daughter Maya, took some time to come and support the ladies that morning and we took some pictures with them (see below).

Autoworld’s wheel balancing and aligning news

The John Bean B800P Wheel Balancer

The John Bean B800P Wheel Balancer

 

Announcing an exclusive automated wheel balancing service! Autoworld is now the proud owner of a John Bean B800P Wheel Balancer at its Impala Service Station.

 

Autoworld’s new John Bean B800P wheel balancer at Impala Service Station offers automatic data entry and rim profiling.

This sophisticated device is ideal for balancing the wheels of sports cars and any other vehicle that require precision balancing. 

More information on the B800P Wheel Balancer:-
 

Faster training, quicker tyre changes
The B800P speeds up the training of new technicians and reduces the time it takes to change a tyre and balance the wheels. The touchscreen interface makes it easy for technicians to check the results. And when the operator touches the imbalance amount, the wheel automatically turns to the correct position for weight placement!

Touchscreen User Interface
This convenient device has commonly used modes such as spoke detection, match mount and manual mode. Measurement results and weight position indicators are clearly visible.

Automatic Balancer Measurement
It takes about 8 seconds for the B800P to identify the optimal location of any imbalance and identify the best location for the clip-on weight.

Patented Automatic Power Clamp
The wheel is electro-mechanically clamped for increased accuracy.

easyWEIGHT
A laser beam pinpoints the positioning of weights in the lower rim position (the B800P's exclusive easyWEIGHT facility).

Other wheel and tyre news from Autoworld:

  • John Bean B340P wheel balancers are now installed in all other Autoworld branches in Lusaka.

  • For wheel alignment, Autoworld uses a 3D car wheel aligner that also comes from market leaders John Bean. This is the Visualiner 3D Lite Lift.

  • Whenever you buy tyres from any Autworld outlet, you’ll get free fitting and a free wheel balancing service (on a John Bean B340P wheel balancer).

  • Nitrogen air is available for pumping into your tyres (at Impala Service Station only). By inflating your tyres with high purity nitrogen, they will remain at their proper operating pressure much longer.

  • For auto repair shops, Autoworld sells John Bean B100 model wheel balancers, as well as John Bean Visualiner 3D Lite Lift wheel aligners.
