Honda opens first B&P in East Coast
Macinda Auto Sdn Bhd, an official Honda dealer based in Kuantan, has upgraded itself to become a full-fledged 4S centre by officially opening Honda’s first Body & Paint centre to be based in the East Coast of Peninsula Malaysia today.
Built at a cost of RM9 million, Macinda Auto’s new B&P spreads over 6,000 square feet of built-up area adjacent to its existing Showroom and Service Centre. From the total outlay, some RM1.5 million was dedicated towards customer amenities such as complimentary computer and Wi-Fi, comfortable customer lounge, shuttle service and also a dedicated kids play area.
The new B&P centre seeks to set new standards in sustainability by using eco-friendly waterborne paint that is free of toxic and harmful solvents. According to Honda, this natural composition reduces pungent odours and detrimental compounds. It is also said that the unique anti-setting technology of the waterborne paint also provides better colour accuracy compared to solvent-based paints. The eco-friendly facility reduces toxic fumes and fire hazard with its waterborne formulation, hence its personnel.
Honda Malaysia is targeting to have a total of 90 dealers by 2015. Since its establishment, Honda Malaysia has been working closely with its dealers to improve their services to provide a complete package of service and convenience to customers nationwide. To date, there are a total of 70 Honda Dealers in Malaysia, of which 4 are 1S Centres, 56 operate as Honda 3S Centres while 10 are 4S Centres.
