Delivery of 24 Fuso light-duty trucks this year represents growing partnership between Mercedes-Benz Malaysia Commercial Vehicles (MBM CV) and Pentas Flora Sdn Bhd.
Mercedes-Benz Malaysia Commercial Vehicles (MBM CV), authorised distributor of Fuso trucks in Malaysia, and authorised Fuso dealer Vista Wheels Sdn Bhd recently delivered 24 Fuso trucks to Pentas Flora Sdn Bhd, the only and largest privately-owned oil refinery plant in Malaysia.
“As a long-time trusted partner of the nation’s haulage and logistics industry, MBM CV continues our on-going pledge to the Malaysian market. Our commitment in providing trucks of the highest quality, while offering reliability and economic efficiency, is of the utmost importance to us and our customers. We are absolutely pleased that Pentas Flora has placed its confidence in our highly reliable and economical commercial vehicles and extensive service network. It is a trust that we greatly value and appreciate deeply,” said Mercedes-Benz Malaysia, Vice President, Commercial Vehicles, Albert Yee.
A Fuso customer since 2011, Pentas Flora’s recently purchased fleet of 24 Fuso light-duty trucks comprise primarily the FE71PB and FE83PG series. The FE71PB series is commonly used for short distance distribution and inter-state logistic transportation while the FE83PG series is suitable for unpaved or rougher terrain. Vista Wheels would provide extensive after-sales support and vehicle maintenance for Pentas Flora’s Fuso fleet that travels routinely to its branch offices nationwide.
Speaking at the handover ceremony, Vista Wheels Head of Sales Book Lim Guan said: “In the haulage industry, we understand that customers require vehicles that are safe, durable and perform well under pressure. Peace-of-mind is what customers look for and together with Mercedes-Benz Malaysia Commercial Vehicles, we are proud to deliver the highest level of quality and service to Pentas Flora.”
“As a company that relies heavily on the transportation of used oil and a one-stop provider for waste management, our trucks need to be in tip-top condition. We depend on consistent after-sales service for our fleet that is reliable and more importantly, with absolutely minimal downtime. We are on track for positive growth this year; so it is only natural that we look to MBM CV to deliver the necessary services in expanding our Fuso truck fleet,” said Pentas Flora Operation Director David Ng.
Established in 2008, Pentas Flora’s primary business is to provide an integrated solution of waste management and recycle used engine and other mineral oils for companies. A member of the EXSIM Group Of Companies, Pentas Flora is currently on an aggressive expansion drive, with plans to open its 12th factory in Labuan this year. To-date, Fuso trucks make up 90 per cent of the company’s 61 units in its commercial vehicle fleet. Pentas Flora is set to further expand its fleet by year end.
Earlier this year, Hap Seng Trucks Distribution Sdn Bhd acquired the Mercedes-Benz Malaysia Commercial Vehicle business. Hap Seng Trucks Distribution would be responsible for the commercial vehicle business, handling the import, assembly, wholesale distribution and after-sales service of Mercedes-Benz and Fuso commercial vehicles in Malaysia.
