“Our Prai dealership has undergone significant upgrades in terms of space and facilities with an investment of RM 8.5 million. Investments like this are crucial for the further development of Volvo in Malaysia. The launch of this 3S centre demonstrates Volvo’s commitment in providing Malaysians a closer reach to our total brand and ownership experience. It reflects on our expanding presence in the northern part of Malaysia and also mirrors our growth strategy,” said Volvo Malaysia Managing Director Mats Nilsson.

Located on a 2.9 acre land strategically in the Prai Industrial Zone, the 31,555 sq. feet facility now boasts 10 work bays able to service up to 15 to 20 trucks per day, a wash bay, tyre alignment and balancing, mobile four-post lifter and the latest tools and equipments.

There’s also a driver lounge with overnight facility equipped with Astro and wifi connectivity, shower and prayers room with complimentary lunch and beverages.

“Safety on the road is of paramount importance to us at Volvo. Based on our driver training programme which we have been offering to our customers and which allows us to train and speak with thousands of truck drivers in Malaysia, we found that fatigue management is a constant challenge for them. Our overnight facility will allow tired drivers to get a good night’s sleep while their truck is being check on at our dealership here.” Nilsson added.
