Malaysia’s DRB-Hicom to assemble vehicles for export
Malaysian automotive assembler DRB- Hicom Pekan automotive complex will start assemblying the Suzuki Swift car for the export market beginning next year, reported Bernama.
DRB-Hicom Berhad's group managing director Datuk Seri Mohd Khamil Jamil said the first model is expected to be exported from April next year.
"DRB-Hicom has also been given the rights to launch two new Suzuki models and one of them will be assembled in Pekan as completely knocked down (CKD) unit," he said at the 25th anniversary of the automotive complex here Saturday.
The event was officiated by the Sultan of Pahang Sultan Ahmad Shah and also present was Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
Mohd Khamil said by assemblying for the export market, the complex would create a new chapter which showed DRB-Hicom's capability in meeting international specifications.
In another development, he said DRB-Hicom would set up an automotive university college of international standard in Pekan.
The automotive college is expected to start taking in its first batch of students in March next year.
