Kota Bharu, 26 September – Perodua has opened its 66th Body and Paint (B&P) centre in Kota Bharu, Kelantan to improve its after-sales services in the East coast. The new B&P centre is owned and operated by long-time Perodua dealer, Nasrom (M) Sdn Bhd, and costs RM2 million to set up.
Of the 66 Perodua B&P centres nationwide, there are seven in the East Coast, located around Kuala Terengganu, Kemaman, Kuantan, Jerantut and Kota Bharu.
“We acknowledge and appreciate the investment by Nasrom (M) Sdn Bhd as well as their commitment towards the needs of our valued customers,” Perodua Sales Sdn Bhd Managing Director Dato’ Dr Zahari Husin said.
Dato’ Dr Zahari said that Perodua will continue to look into further improving the capacity of its existing B&P facilities and the possibility of establishing new facilities in order to fulfil the needs of the 3.2 million or so Perodua vehicle owners nationwide.
“In addition to enhancing convenience for our customers, this new facility also symbolises our commitment to grow the local automotive eco-system, especially independent dealers like Nasrom (M) Sdn Bhd. This is part and parcel of Perodua’s responsibility as a national car company,” he added.
Nasrom’s Perodua B&P centre is located at Lot 12972 & 12973, Kg Padang Kala, Peringat District, 16150 Kota Bharu, and occupies an area of 17,000 sq ft. This facility is capable of mending up to 1,080 cars annually.
“With this new facility, our customers can be assured of quality workmanship and genuine parts in the repair of their cars. Our authorised personnel will also assist with the claims process. We understand that repairing one’s vehicle can be a stressful time, but we will do our best to ensure that your experience with us is easy and trouble-free,” said Nasrom (M) Sdn Bhd Managing Director En Ab. Alim @ Ab. Halim bin Hassan.
Nasrom has been an authorised Perodua dealer since 1994, and also operates a 1S (sales) outlet and a 2S (service and spare parts) outlet, in Kubang Kerian.
“We find Perodua to have always been fair with its partners and are only too happy to invest in this new facility as we believe that as Perodua grows, so do home-grown businesses like us,” En Ab. Alim said.
