Volvo in RM75m expansion drive
KUANTAN: Volvo Malaysia, one of the country's largest producers of heavy commercial vehicles, will invest RM75 million over the next two years to expand its network and presence.
Managing director Mats Nilsson said the company plans to set up more dealerships and upgrade the existing 11 centres to serve its clients better.
"We want to ramp up our services to provide comprehensive transport solutions and quality aftermarket support to clients. More centres will help maximise the drivers' time and get them back on the road as soon as possible, especially after repairs.
"Volvo Malaysia will not only focus on trucks but also other divisions, including buses and construction equipment, as the demand for heavy vehicles in the construction sector is on the rise," Nilsson said after opening the Volvo Malaysia dealership centre at the Gebeng Industrial Area, here, yesterday.
Nilsson described Malaysia as a fast-growing nation spurred by various economic developments.
He said there is a big demand for reliable commercial transport solutions in this country.
This increases the need for trucks and construction equipment.
Nilsson said the Gebeng dealership centre is strategic as it lies between the East Coast states and Kuala Lumpur.
"This centre is only the second after Shah Alam that offers drivers overnight facility in the country."
The RM7 million centre, which is the first in the East Coast, was opened by Swedish ambassador to Malaysia Bengt Carlsson.
