Dongfeng Trucks has built its brand name in Malaysia with more than 700 units on the road.
This year 2019 marks the 10th year of Dongfeng Trucks’ operation in Malaysia following the launch of the first model, Bison 260, on 31st March, 2009 under the company named Quasar Industrial Vehicles Sdn Bhd. In June 2010, the company launched the new Kinland Prime Mover 420 6x4.
Since the company was the sole distributor of Dongfeng Trucks, the name was later changed to Dongfeng Commercial Vehicle (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd (DFCVM) in January 2011. In October, the first assembled unit of the Kingrun 270 medium rigid truck arrived at its Batu Caves office.
Another Dongfeng’s flagship product – T-Lift 375 mixer truck – was brought to the Malaysian market in August 2012. This was followed by the unveiling of the first heavy duty rigid truck – T-Lift 375 6x4 – together with the Kinland 340 6x4 prime mover.
Over the 10 years of its contribution to the construction, logistics and transportation industry, Dongfeng Trucks has built its brand name in Malaysia with more than 700 units on the road.
“We are happy that we have come to our 10th year and are grateful to our fleet of loyal customers, principal, shareholders, employees and business associates for their support and commitment all these years,” said Lim Khoon Yee, Managing Director of DFCVM.
DFCVM was awarded the Outstanding Distributor Award by DFCV in December 2017, which reflected the important progress the company has made and its commitment to grow the Dongfeng brand in the Malaysian trucking industry.
Harvey Wang, the representative from DFCV China, congratulated DFCVM and expressed gratitude for the loyalty and commitment shown by the sole importer and distributor of Dongfeng Trucks. “We thank DFCVM for the sales and marketing efforts and in creating the Dongfeng Truck brand name over the past 10 years.
“To cherish the co-operation and close relationship develop over the last 10 years, DFCV China would undertake to further enhance the co-operation with plans to introduce a wider range of updated models for customers over the next 3 years,” added Harvey.
Incidentally this year, Volvo Trucks, a strategic partner of Dongfeng Trucks, China also celebrated its 50th year Anniversary in Malaysia. AB Volvo Trucks and Dongfeng Motor Group announced a strategic alliance in March 2013, with the legal company named Dongfeng Commercial Vehicle Company Limited (DFCV).
