Hap Seng Trucks Distribution Takes Over MBM Truck and Bus Business
Hap Seng Trucks Distribution Sdn Bhd completed the takeover of the commercial vehicle general distribution business from Mercedes-Benz Malaysia on 1st November, 2018.
This marks the beginning of Hap Seng Trucks Distribution being the exclusive general distributor of Mercedes-Benz Trucks, Mercedes-Benz Vans and Fuso Trucks in Malaysia, which includes handling the import, assembly, wholesale distribution and after-sales services of Mercedes-Benz and Fuso commercial vehicles.
The ‘office-opening’ ceremony of Hap Seng Trucks Distribution was held at its new office in Wisma Mercedes-Benz in Kinrara, Puchong (designed, built, managed and owned by the Hap Seng group) to commemorate this momentous milestone.
Hap Seng Trucks Distribution is helmed by Roland Schneider, a German, whose 28-year illustrious career with the Daimler group was punctuated by notable distinctions. “We are truly grateful for this very honour and opportunity to be appointed the exclusive general distributor of Mercedes-Benz and Fuso commercial vehicles in Malaysia. I steadfastly believe that Hap Seng Trucks Distribution is well-poised to fly more Mercedes-Benz and Fuso flags on the roads and highways in Malaysia in time to come. This is a collective mission to be made possible with the collaborative efforts of all stakeholders – our esteemed principal and dealer network as well as our unflagging commitment to support our dealers and to open new frontiers in the commercial trucks business,” said Schneider.
Antonio Randazzo, Vice President of Daimler Commercial Vehicles South East Asia, said: “Leveraging on the prominent brand presence of Mercedes-Benz and Fuso as well as the proven track record and reputation of Hap Seng, we are confident that Hap Seng Trucks Distribution is on its way to bring the commercial vehicle business in Malaysia to a whole new level.”
