KUALA LUMPUR: UMW Toyota Motor Sdn Bhd, the exclusive distributor of Toyota and Lexus models in Malaysia, has invested RM36mil to develop its Sabah Integrated Quality Hub (SIQH) in Kota Kinabalu.

The company said in a statement that the SIQH, spanning over 8.6 acres, started its operation last month.

The new facility conducts delivery quality checks of all vehicles before they reach the customers.

“The SIQH has a maximum capacity to stock up to 1,000 vehicles at one time, and is crucial to UMW Toyota Motor’s commitment to deliver vehicles at its best quality to customers in accordance to Toyota standards,” the company said.

UMW Toyota Motor deputy chairman Akio Takeyama said its first integrated quality hub in Bukit Raja, Klang, was set up in 2011 and it hoped to replicate its success in Sabah.

“The East Malaysia market is a very important market to us; thus we are also looking for expanding our hub operations,” he said.

UMW Toyota Motor is owned by UMW Corp Sdn Bhd, Toyota Motor Corp and Toyota Tsusho Corp.
