MAN Malaysia to bank on southern region

By CARSIFU | 17 February 2023

JOHOR BARU: The southern region of Malaysia remains a key growth area for MAN Truck & Bus (M) Sdn Bhd (MAN Malaysia) as it contributes towards the company's upwards trajectory in Malaysia following a sterling year in 2022.

Driven by the overwhelming market response to MAN's Euro V-powered new MAN Truck range, a growing number of hauliers are now opting for the new MAN Trucks with low emission Euro V engines as standard that have proven to be able to help businesses achieve both sustainability and profitability goals.

MAN Malaysia managing director Andrew O’Brooks said that the company was grateful for the industry’s support and the growing number of returning and new customers.

“We are delighted to see more and more Malaysian transporters, especially in Johor, commit to reducing their fleets’ carbon footprint with lower emission MAN Trucks.

“Last year was an amazing year of growth for us and with increasing support from key players in the industry across the country, we are looking forward to an exciting year ahead,” he said at the latest handover of new MAN Trucks to Johor-based transporters witnessed by more than 50 members of the Johor Trucking Association.

At the event, three companies that operated the previous generation MAN Trucks received their first units of the Euro V-powered new MAN TGS prime movers along with two first-time customers.

Returning customers Sri Kulai Transport Sdn Bhd and Kiaan Yap Transport Sdn Bhd took delivery of the new MAN TGS 6X4 while Chain Hub Sdn Bhd received the keys to its new MAN TGS 6X2.

New to the MAN family are Modern Wong Transport Sdn Bhd and Soong Ki Trading Sdn Bhd which both invested in the new MAN TGS 6X4 which is ideal for heavy-duty cargo transportation.

The new MAN Truck Generation with Euro V engines as standard leads the way in driver orientation, fuel efficiency, assistance systems, digital networking and above all, sustainability.

O’Brooks said MAN Malaysia has been preparing itself to meet the demands of a growing pool of customers in the country.

After nearly three decades in Rawang, Selangor, the company has relocated its headquarters to a modern and spacious integrated facility in Shah Alam that would eventually house its entire operations, including vehicle assembly, under one roof.

“Having a good product is not enough. We are moving forward with a clear direction, building and developing a great team who are always willing to go the extra mile for customers,” he said.

O’Brooks said the company would continue to work closely with industry associations to champion issues and drive changes.

“We want to earn the respect of the industry and further strengthen the reputation of the MAN brand in Malaysia,” he said.
