PETRONAS Dagangan Berhad (PDB) subsidiary, PETRONAS Lubricants Marketing (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd (PLMM) has set up mobile car service workshops at several locations for the convenience of the healthcare frontliners who are busy handling the COVID-19 pandemic. The mobile service workshops are located at Hospital Sungai Buloh, University of Malaya Medical Centre, and Hospital Kuala Lumpur; they will be there from 20 – 28 April 2020.
This initiative is part of PETRONAS’ corporate social responsibility programme to help ease the burden of the frontliners battling the pandemic, and to help them stay safe on the road. During this period, the Company will be offering free PETRONAS Syntium engine lubricant change for their cars. The oil change is carried out by PETRONAS appointed service provider, RessQ60Min powered by MyAssist. Other services such as replacement of oil or air-con filter, battery, and wipers are also available at a chargeable rate.
PETRONAS will also be extending the same service at three of its AutoExpert outlets located in Sri Kembangan, Petaling Jaya and Shah Alam to cater to healthcare frontliners who are within 10 km of the vicinity.
“PETRONAS appreciates the dedication and sacrifices made by the front-liners during these challenging times. Apart from the contribution of medical equipment and supplies, as well as food and beverage supply made earlier by the Group, we have now expanded it to include car servicing. We want them to be safe on the roads, and provide them with the comfort that their car is well-taken care of while they focus on attending to the patients,” said PDB’s Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Azrul Osman Rani.
The PETRONAS Group had earlier, through its corporate social responsibility arm Yayasan PETRONAS, contributed RM20 million worth of medical equipment and supplies to help hospitals and healthcare frontliners mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic in Malaysia. The Group had also reached out to 800 deserving families through a special initiative, the Sentuhan Kasih COVID-19 programme, by providing food aid to the B40 community in Sabah, Sarawak, Terengganu and Kelantan to ease their burden during the Movement Control Order period.
Further, the company also contributed cartons of Mesra Mineral Water to University of Malaya Medical Centre and Hospital Kuala Lumpur, Polis Diraja Malaysia and St. John Ambulance, as well as Mesra Bites buns to the Malaysian army.
