Perodua has resumed operations of its sales and aftersales centres nationwide. This includes the operation of its body and paint workshops. The reopening of Perodua’s sales and aftersales centres follows the restart of its production facility in Sungai Choh, Rawang.
“Deliveries has started in stages since this week and we expect that we can see more Perodua cars produced and registered in the coming weeks,” Perodua President and Chief Executive Officer, Dato’ Zainal Abidin Ahmad said.
“We thank our customers for their patience, understanding and loyalty in receiving your Perodua vehicle. We expect to be able to deliver nearly all existing orders within the year,” he added.
Perodua has 191 sales, 197 service and 69 body and paint centres nationwide. It is in the midst of evaluating the impact of the recent lockdown which started in June 2021 on its operations as it could affect its annual target. Dato Zainal stated that the company “will announce our revised targets for the year soon”.
The car maker has approximately 11,000 people under its direct employment. When combined with its suppliers, dealers and contractors, the Perodua ecosystem employs over 70,000 people. While Perodua has met the required criteria for vaccination of its employees, the company has outlined safety guidelines for its customers when visiting its sale and aftersales centres. Aftersales centres include service centres as well as body and paint facilities.
Visitors must be fully vaccinated, wear a mask, and most importantly make an appointment with the sales or service outlet before visiting. Physical distancing and other health precautions will also be enforced at these outlets.
