Angka-Tan Motor eyes 5pc market share
PETALING JAYA: Warisan TC Holdings Bhd's unit, Angka-Tan Motor Sdn Bhd, is optimistic of capturing five per cent market share of the country's pick-up truck segment by 2016.
The target is achievable with the expansion of the company's dealership centres nationwide, says its executive director Teh Kok Lim.
"We have 15 dealers currently and we aim to reach a maximum of 30 dealers by year-end.
"As for Sabah and Sarawak, we are collaborating with our sister companies, TCIE (Sabah) and Tan Chong Motor Sarawak, to cater to the market there," Teh told reporters at the launch of the company's flagship showroom here yesterday.
Angka-Tan Motor, which unveiled its latest Bison Savanna yesterday, is the sole distributor of Bison trucks in the country.
The trucks are manufactured by Beijing-based Beiqi Foton Motor Co Ltd, which is known as the largest commercial vehicle maker in China.
Teh said the Chinese brand, backed by technologies from the US and Germany, is set to challenge leaders of the segment like Isuzu and Toyota, in the country.
The showroom, which houses the company's headquarters, will soon also be a 3S (sales, service, spare parts) centre.
