MBSM celebrates 5th anniversary
Puchong, 2 May 2018 – Mercedes-Benz Services Malaysia Sdn Bhd (MBSM) recently celebrated its fifth anniversary. It has a portfolio of RM2.2 billion by financing and insuring four out of every ten Mercedes-Benz cars sold.
“It’s been five fantastic years. We have so much to celebrate, and one of the reasons for our celebration is the long-term support of our esteemed media friends, who have, and continue, to play an essential role in our success,” said Mike Ponnaz, managing director.
“We have 16,000 active customers, and we recorded contracts worth over RM1billion in 2017. We are very proud of the collective achievement of the team and look forward to growing in line with the sales achievements of over 12,000 Mercedes-Benz cars sold and 2,469 commercial vehicles sold last year,” he added.
MBSM was first established in 2012, entering the Malaysian market at an opportune time to support its sister company, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia (MBM), with innovative automotive financing packages. At that time, MBM had registered a strong sales record of over 6,000 vehicles sold. In 2012 and 2013 MBSM focused on setting up the business, studying the needs of the market in order to begin catering to the aspirations of Mercedes-Benz customers.
MBSM’s keen focus on supporting customers led to its ability to identify the evolving needs and aspirations of customers. Over the last two years, it launched cutting-edge solutions like Agility Financing and Lease2Go that have redefined the process of owning and financing a Mercedes-Benz vehicle.
Following five years of steady growth, MBSM took the time to personally thank the media recently at a special celebration. Also present at the milestone celebration was Thomas Hungerland, Daimler Financial Services AAP, regional head SEA, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Dr Claus Weidner, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia, president & CEO.
