2019 was marked as a big year for Volvo as an international brand. Volvo surpassed the 700,000 mark for the first time ever, with a total of 705,452 units sold around the world.
In Malaysia, Volvo Car Malaysia achieved a milestone success of their own too, with the highest retail delivery to date at 1,883 units. Volvo Car Malaysia added another milestone and unveiled the Volvo Car Regional Training Center in Petaling Jaya. Located in Symphony Square, Section 13 Petaling Jaya, this brand new space will play a pivotal role annually to delivering up to 7,500 man-days of training to staff and dealers from across the Asia Pacific region on technical and non-technical areas.
“Malaysia is considered the ideal hub as it offers good infrastructure and a strong team of local talent to run regional functions. This training center and other shared services such as Finance Cluster, Technical Hub, and Procurement which operate here are expected to generate export service revenue of over RM100 million in the next 5-7 years,” said Mr. Nalin Jain, Managing Director of Volvo Car Malaysia.
“Even as the Malaysian premium segment is facing a decline, Volvo beat the odds and accomplished our highest ever year-on-year growth in retail delivery at 36.1% in 2019 compared to the previous year. We are definitely on the right trajectory and we are excited to show our customers what’s in store for the Volvo brand in 2020,” Mr. Nalin added.
