EDARAN Tan Chong Motor Sdn Bhd officially launched its flagship Nissan 4S Centre in Glenmarie, Shah Alam, last week.
The event, launched by Transport Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai, marks yet another milestone for ETCM, which had successfully held the grand opening of its Taiping 3S Centre a week earlier.
Also present at the event were Nissan Motor Asia Pacific Co Ltd senior vice- president Kenji Naito, ETCM executive director Datuk Dr Ang Bon Beng, and Tan Chong Motor Holdings president Datuk Tan Heng Chew.
ETCM’s new 165,318sq ft centre features a showroom, a service and spare parts centre, and a body and paint centre.
The expansive showroom is able to display up to 15 Nissan vehicles, and is manned by 28 Nissan sales professionals.
The 27-bay service centre, which manned by 22 technicians, has the capacity to service up to 100 cars a day, and an average of 3,000 vehicles in a month.
“With a total investment of about RM20mil, this new flagship 4S Centre is the epitome of services that we envision to provide to our customers in ETCM and Nissan. Its strategic location – right in the heart of the established automotive industrial hub in Glenmarie makes it convenient and accessible for our customers.
“In the past 12 months, we have been aggressively upgrading our network and facilities to meet the demands of Nissan owners nationwide.
“This is crucial, because with the full line-up of Nissan models we have introduced, we are also addressing the needs of a wider range of discerning customers.
“Additionally, with this new setup, we are offering employment opportunities and expect to hire up to 120 staff at this flagship 4S Centre once it is running at full capacity,” Ang said.
The new centre also has a retail component which houses a motorsports boutique and a V-Kool boutique that provide customisation options to customers. For those with sportier tendencies who appreciate enhanced driving dynamics, official Nismo and Impul products can be purchased from the motorsports boutique.
Extensive V-Kool products, accessories and services are available at the V-Kool boutique, including tinting, car detailing, car care product and customised car wraps.
