GEORGE TOWN: Hyundai-Sime Darby Motors Sdn Bhd (HSDM) has allocated RM8 million to open another six or seven 3S (Sales, Service and Spare Parts) centres nationwide until the middle of next year.

Its managing director Dennis Ho said currently HSDM had eight 3S centres nationwide. "The cost to open a 3S centre is between RM1.5 million to RM2.5 million," he told reporters after the opening of its third 3S centre in Penang here today.

The biggest HSDM 3S centre in the northern region was launched by Hyundai Motor Company Asia and Pacific regional headquarters head Kim Hoo-Keun.

Strategically located on the Jalan Sg Pinang motor belt, the new 3251.5 sq. m. centre has features such as premium customer lounge with free wi-fi, refreshments, Quick Service and 24-hour Key Drop.

Ho said to provide convenience to the growing community in the northern region, the 3S centre in Prai will be shifted to bigger facilities and is expected to be ready in December this year while the new 3S centres in Ipoh and Taiping are expected to be ready by the first quarter of next year.

He said the Hyundai community is steadily growing in Penang with pproximately 700 units sold in 2010. "With this 3S centre and new models that are in the pipeline, we expect 100 per cent growth in sales in Penang for 2012," he added. - BERNAMA
