“Our customers have always been our main priority as they put their faith and trust in their Fuso trucks to ensure smooth day-to-day business operations. The Fuso Diamond Contest is our way to meet and thank them personally for their continuous trust, loyalty and support. The 2017/2018 contest received 2,176 entries and we are overwhelmed by the positive response. We congratulate all winners and look forward to continue engaging our customers by delivering trucks you could trust and of unparalleled service quality,” said Mercedes-Benz Malaysia, Commercial Vehicles, Vice President Albert Yee.
This year marked the 5th year of the Fuso Diamond Contest organised by MBM CV, the authorised distributor of Fuso trucks in Malaysia. The contest comprised two draws; a Mini Draw held in August 2017 and the Grand Draw being the culminating event.
Held at an exciting gala dinner at One World Hotel, the lucky draw was drawn from entries comprising Fuso customers nationwide. Brothers Tan Kim Chai and Tan Kim Seng from SDS Bakeries were overjoyed at winning the 2017/2018 Fuso Diamond Contest Grand Prize.
SDS Bakeries is one of MBM CV’s long-standing customers, having purchased its first Fuso truck seven years ago. “Quality trucks with low downtime and good after-sales service was the reason for our continued support for Fuso trucks. We bought our first Fuso truck in 2011 as we wanted to expand our business. Currently, we have more than 150 Fuso trucks and intend to expand our fleet in the near future,” said Kim Seng who is SDS Bakeries Manager.
Twenty-six other winners also took home attractive prizes. Global Inter-Dream (M) Sdn Bhd, Heng Seng & Company Sdn Bhd, TJM Marketing Sdn Bhd and ABX Express (M) Sdn Bhd each won a trip to Japan as well and service vouchers worth RM5,000, RM4,000, RM3,000 and RM2,000 by taking first, second, third and fourth places respectively. Ten lucky Fuso customers received consolation prizes of service vouchers worth RM2,000 each while 12 others each received service vouchers worth RM1,000.
The night also saw 20 lucky winners taking home a Mercedes-Benz watch each, with the 21st winner, Tan Se Hooi, winning the night’s mystery draw, a trip to Japan.
As the authorised dealer for Fuso trucks, MBM CV caters to the medium-range commercial vehicle market segment with light, medium and heavy-duty Fuso trucks. The Fuso light duty trucks (FE71PB, FE83PE, FE83PG, FE85PG, FG83PE [4X4]) are commonly used for short distance distribution, inter-state logistic transportation and tipper operations, while the medium duty trucks (FM65FJ, FM65FN) are used as compactor trucks, roll-on-roll-off trucks, tankers and for long distance logistics. Fuso heavy-duty trucks (FN62FM) are commonly used in quarry sites and as tipper trucks.
“Our diverse product portfolio is a reflection of MBM CV’s commitment to the Malaysian haulage and logistics sector. Our goal remains the same: to be a reliable partner to help drive their business. We believe our focus and efforts are key factors that help us continue setting the benchmark for reliable trucks and service quality as customers maintain their loyalty and trust in the Fuso brand,” Yee concluded.
MBM CV demonstrated a strong performance in 2017 delivering 2,469 vehicles comprising Fuso light-duty and heavy-duty trucks as well as Mercedes-Benz trucks and vans. Assisted by a nationwide network comprising 37 Fuso dealers, MBM CV and its dealer partners continue to offer peace of mind and convenience to customers nationwide.
