New BMW Group Parts Distribution Centre Announced in Johor Bahru
BMW Group Malaysia and Pan Asia Logistics today held the ground breaking ceremony for the new BMW Group Parts Distribution Centre Malaysia at the Airport Free Industrial Zone at the Senai International Airport in Johor Bahru, Malaysia.
Located on a plot of land of 25 acres in the Free Industrial Zone of the Senai International Airport, the new BMW Group Parts Distribution Centre Malaysia will be a new state of the art logistics warehouse and parts distribution centre for the premium automaker, supporting over 22 countries in the region. The new facility will also replace the current Parts Distribution Centre facility in Malaysia for the BMW Group which is located within the Free Trade Zone of the Port of Tanjung Pelepas, Johor Bahru.
Mr. Alan Harris, Managing Director & CEO, BMW Group Malaysia, meanwhile, said, “Malaysia continues to be a strategic hub and a key growth market for the BMW Group in the South East Asia region. This is clearly demonstrated with the expansion of our headquarters, Regional Training Centre and Group Date Centre in Cyberjaya, our local assembly facilities at the BMW Group Assembly Plant in Kulim, Kedah as well as our established network of dealerships across the country.”
Harris added that the leading premium automaker has also consistently strengthened its investments in the country, providing skilled and professional work opportunities for Malaysians throughout the country as well as offering significant transfer of advanced technologies and processes to the local automotive industry.
