Sam Quraishi commented, “1911 was a phenomenal year in automotive history. Three Japanese entrepreneurs Den, Aoyama, and Takeuchi established Asia's first automotive company that would make first Asian car DAT - the precursor to Datsun and Nissan, Monaco organized world’s first auto race in Monte Carlo, Chevrolet officially entered the automobile market to challenge Ford’s legendary Model-T and most importantly our great grandfather M. A. Quraishi established Asia’s first auto dealership. Of these events, two events - establishment of Quraishi Motors which was to be renamed Soni Motors in 1981 and the creation of first Asian automobile - had the greatest impact on auto history in Asia. M. A. Quraishi or Quraishi Senior as we like to call him was a true automobile legend. He loved automobiles and was the first Asian to import a car but more than that he was a visionary and he single-handedly shaped the automobile retailing and exporting in Asia.”
Soni Quraishi added, “Soni Motors may have changed its name but it is built on the same principles Quraishi Sr. espoused, honesty, integrity, professionalism, customer service, low price and top quality. We are just as committed to these principles as Quraishi Sr. and Amin Quraishi were. As we celebrate our 10 decades in automotive industry, we must remember that Soni is the uncontested King of the 4x4 thanks to the vision and untiring dedication of our founders.”
Jim Quraishi commented, “I should like to point out that not only is this year the 97th years anniversary of our presence in Asia it is also our 26th anniversary in Bangkok. This milestone makes Soni Motors the longest standing dealership and largest auto exporter in Thailand. These milestones would not have been possible without our customers and employees. If it were not for the integrity and superior customer service of our team members we would not have achieved this phenomenal year by year growth. Principles our forefathers handed us have allowed us to earn the trust of our customers and our 80% repeat and referral business is a testament to the abiding value of these golden principles. I look forward to another 97 years.”
The festive party was held at Soni Motors spacious headquarters in Prawet district of Bangkok which includes South East Asia's largest showroom of diesel 4x4 vehicles and was attended by employees of all Soni divisions, its suppliers, dignitaries and auto industry leaders.
