Kota Kinabalu, 21 July 2018 – BMW Group Malaysia and its dealer, Regas Premium Sabah, have opened the doors of the Kota Kinabalu BMW and BMW Motorrad showroom. Regas Premium Sabah Sdn Bhd is a joint venture between TM Vision Auto Services Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of TBMC Group of Companies and Regas Premium Auto Sdn Bhd. Regas Premium Sabah is the newest BMW dealer, appointed to take over the dealership in KK and will operate from the existing 53,500 sq ft facility strategically located in the prime area along Jalan Penampang. It offers the full suite of Sales, Services, Spare Parts and Systems (4S) for the brands BMW and BMW Motorrad, as well as service facilities for the BMW i and MINI brands.
At the opening ceremony, Mr. Harald Hoelzl, Managing Director and CEO of BMW Group Malaysia said, “Partnerships and collaborations with our dealer representatives such as Regas Premium Sabah form crucial touch points to deliver our promise of Sheer Driving Pleasure to our customers in the country. While Regas Premium Sabah is now a new dealership in Kota Kinabalu, its owners Tan Brothers Machinery Company (TBMC) and Regas Group of Companies are no strangers to the premium automotive industry in East Malaysia.”
According to Hoelzl, East Malaysia annually contributes over 500 vehicles to BMW’s performance in Malaysia and the state of Sabah accounts for over 200 vehicles, proving that the state is a key touch point in the country.
Mr. Matthew Tan, Managing Director and Dealer Principal of Regas Premium Sabah, meanwhile said, “The BMW Group is the leader in Mobility of the Future, delivering the best premium products and the best premium services for individual mobility. The brands representing the premium automaker are also the fastest growing brands in the premium segment in Malaysia with innovations that are leading the automotive industry in the country, which is why it has been an ambition for us at TBMC Group of Companies to represent the brand here in Sabah.”
In 2017, Sabah recorded an 18% growth in deliveries across the BMW, MINI and BMW Motorrad range when compared to 2016’s performance.
Regas Premium Sabah is located at Lot 17362, Mile 3, Lido, Jalan Penampang, 88300 Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.
