3M mulls car servicing centres


“We have our independent car servicing centres in many countries, including over 500 in China and some in Brazil. We are evaluating it for India also and if things progress well, we might venture into car servicing in 1-2 years,” 3M India Division Manager (Car Care Division) Ninad Gadgil told PTI.

He said the company has started research and testing of the concept.
“We will probably do it under the franchise model. We will start with a few centres as pilot projects to get the model in place and then will think of expanding,” Gadgil said.
The US$25 billion 3M has interests in 44 diverse segments like health care, industrial markets, display and graphics, electronics and communication and automotive aftermarket.

It garnered a revenue of over Rs 1,000 crore in India in 2008. The car care division of its Automotive Aftermarket business is one of the major contributors.
