Proton recently supplied 32 cars to UEM Edgenta Berhad, the parent company of Edgenta PROPEL Berhad, a specialist network management and infrastructure maintenance company. The fleet sale consists of Persona and Perdana models and will be used for daily operations.
Commenting on the latest fleet deal, Dr. Li Chunrong, Proton’s CEO said that the company has a long relationship with UEM Edgenta which goes back to 2002. “Since then, a total of 236 units of Proton cars have been purchased via our corporate fleet sales programme, including the recent purchase of 30 units of Persona and 2 units of Perdana. We appreciate the continuous support from UEM Edgenta and we shall provide our best services to them,” said Dr Li.
He added: “I believe trust is built because they have faith in the affordability, reliability and durability of Proton cars, which they have experienced over the years. A company car needs to be reliable yet easy to maintain, factors which are highly important for consideration before a company decides to purchase a car. These are the winning factors in our products apart from its great driveability. We hope the ongoing relationship will continue to spur more sales from UEM Edgenta in the future.”
“Edgenta PROPEL is the country’s leading network management and infrastructure maintenance specialists with over 25 years of experience in the infrastructure maintenance management industry. It manages, maintains and monitors over 2,500 kilometres of expressways, state as well as plantation roads in Malaysia, and the operations is 24/7, 365 days a year,” said Dato’ Azmir Merican, Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of UEM Edgenta.
“To achieve maximum operational efficiency as well as ensure the safety of our on-the-ground employees, we decided to undertake a fleet renewal programme which sees us replacing our current cars that are over 10 years old. Given the reliability and durability of Proton vehicles, I’m confident we are able to achieve our objectives,” he explained.
“Our commitment to operational efficiency will continue and our fleet renewal programme will be expanded to include procurement of additional lorries and pick-up trucks before the end of 2018,” added Dato’ Azmir.
