Scania Malaysia has officially opened a new flagship sales & service branch in Johor, which is a crucial gateway in the south of Malaysia. This new flagship outlet is located at Lot 39795, Jalan Idaman, Taman Perindustrian Senai, 81400 Senai, Johor Darul Ta’zim, and implements sustainable practices in line with Scania’s global targets. The workshop has 16 workplaces, an overhead crane and is run by a team of highly trained employees.
“We have been in Johor since 2002. The state is the Southern gateway to the vast transportation network in Peninsular Malaysia. So, the move to bigger and more advanced premises in Senai meets the growing demand for Scania from customers both within and outside the state,” said Heba El Tarifi, Managing Director of Scania Southeast Asia.
The new branch has 5,000 square metres of land, with wide open spaces and plenty of green lung landscaping. Sustainable practices initiated here are the installation of LED lights throughout the premises, a water harvesting system, an integrated state-of-the-art oil dispensing system, a waste oil management system and an environmental station to ensure segregation and recycling of waste.
These are all installed to meet Scania’s sustainability objectives. In the future, solar panels will be installed to harness renewable energy from the abundance of sunlight in Malaysia.
“Our wide range of products and services continue to support our customers’ operations providing maximum uptime and fuel economy. They understand that in order to achieve this their Scania trucks, buses and coaches need scheduled maintenance,” said Anders Liss, Regional Manager – Region South. “This is why our repair and maintenance services are rapidly gaining recognition, and our new facility will support them all the way.”
With a Scania Contract, customers have a ‘home’ workshop and a service team with thorough knowledge of Scania vehicles. The increasingly popular Repair and Maintenance Contract ensures that Scania vehicles and engines are covered, from powertrain protection to full bumper to bumper coverage. Furthermore, through connectivity with the Scania Fleet Management System, real-time vehicle data can help with proactive and preventive services to maximise customers’ uptime and operating economy.
The Scania service team ensures customers will get quality advice, maintenance and parts when needed. Scania parts continue to be available and delivered fast, supported by the Asia Parts Centre in neighbouring Singapore.
“Scania continues to lead the shift towards a sustainable transport system. Our customers appreciate our industry-leading fuel-saving vehicles but also our partnership to reduce carbon emissions,” said Anders. “Here in Johor, customers like Mohd Sidek Amzah Enterprise, Naidu Trans Logistic and Narita Shipping & Transport are leading the way towards a greener future with Scania Ecolution.”
“We recognise the challenges that the country and the Johor state is facing now with the pandemic and the restrictions, yet we continue to believe in and invest in Johor. So, not only will this facility advance our long history of supporting transportation in Johor but also spearhead the newer, more profitable and sustainable future of the state together with our customers,” concluded Heba.
