Volkswagen starts business in Semenyih

Business started in January but now it is officially launched.


Volkswagen is venturing into the southern Klang Valley with the opening of their brand new 3S centre in Semenyih! This outlet will also be the first continental car brand to start operations in the Semenyih area.

Residents of the area will now get to enjoy the facilities like the customer lounge, that is equipped with computers and a café bar counter, built into the 34,030 square feet 3S centre that has the capacity to display up to eight cars at a time. The service centre on the other hand has a total of 11 service bays manned by 12 experienced and trained aftersales staff.

HICOM Auto Sdn Bhd has invested a total of RM10.7million into the overall build-up of the Semenyih 3S Centre showroom. That total amount also includes the purchase of Volkswagen approved equipment, aftersales, training and staff acquisition. The company hopes that with the opening of the 3S centre in Semenyih they will better cater to the customers from the southern Klang Valley like Semenyih, Kajang, Balakong, Putrajaya and Nilai.

Mr Armin Keller, Managing Director of Volkswagen Group Malaysia said “This is the fourth showroom launched within the first half of the year and this is a testament that we are strengthening our offerings to our customers. This opening is part of making our customers a top priority and Volkswagen Malaysia will continue to work closely with our dealership partners to ensure constant improvement towards the overall ownership experience. Congratulations HICOM Auto on today’s launch and thank you for your commitment to the brand.”

Dato’ Abdul Harith Abdullah, Chief Operating Officer, Automotive Distribution and Defence,  DRB-HICOM Berhad said, “We are indeed confident the collaboration between Volkswagen and DRB-HICOM, which personifies the coming together of two industry-leading brands, will continue to pave the way for a mutually beneficial long-term partnership. With this investment, we are committed to providing and enhancing the overall ownership experience of our customers.”

Those who purchase a Volkswagen vehicle from Volkswagen Semenyih 3S centre will also receive a complementary DRB-HICOM Elite Card. The card is a multi-merchant loyalty programme aimed at providing assistance and exclusive benefits to members through redeemable products, services, discounts and assistance.
