Apollo opens first tire service center in Malaysia

  5/15/2019 - Gurgaon, India - Apollo Tyres launched its first Apollo Truck Tyre Zone (ATTZ) in Malaysia, a one stop solution center for tires on commercial fleets. The opening of the new center is in line with Apollo Tyres’ focus to provide its consumers with convenient access to its extensive services. Equipped with modern automotive technologies, the center will be managed by Sin Chu Hin, one of the top tire specialists in the southern region of Malaysia. The partnership, which is also the first one for Apollo Tyres outside India, will enable the delivery of quality products and services to the Malaysian market, while creating sustainable value for customers. Speaking at the inauguration of Apollo Truck Tyre Zone in Malaysia, Satish Sharma, president, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa, Apollo Tyres Ltd., said, “Apollo is committed to bringing the best of our products and services to our customers. This state-of-the-art truck service center brings together Apollo’s extensive experience in truck and bus radials along with Sin Chu Hin’s 80-year long local experience for a range of services and solutions for our fleet customers in Malaysia, further cementing our steadfast commitment to the Malaysian automotive industry.” Apart from providing application-based tire recommendation, the ATTZ would be equipped with state-of-the-art facilities, including a computerized truck tire alignment machine, automatic tire changer, nitrogen inflator, and would offer end-to-end tire related services for trucks and buses. These services are expected to reduce customers’ maintenance cost and fuel consumption. Taking the development in the dynamics of the vehicle platform, the ATTZ also has a training center to guide its consumers through their purchase decision. “We see a vast opportunity in Batu Pahat, which is a thriving business destination at the tip of Peninsular Malaysia, especially for our truck radials. The ATTZ is, in fact, the first of several truck service centers we are planning to open in partnership with our valued business partners in the ASEAN region,” added Shubhro Ghosh, group head, ASEAN, Middle East and Africa region for Apollo Tyres.
