Shah Alam, 31 May 2012 – UMW Advantech Sdn. Bhd. (UASB), a wholly-owned subsidiary in the UMW Group, today signed a distributorship agreement with Delphi, a premier global automotive supplier of OE quality parts to vehicle manufacturers and the aftermarket. Under the distributorship agreement, UASB will carry Delphi diesel products (nozzles, injectors and filters), chassis products such as brakes, rotors, power steering pumps and various vehicle electronic sensors for the Japanese and European car market segment. UASB says having Delphi quality products will help develop the market in this region.
As a world leader in automotive systems and components, Delphi is focused on providing vehicle manufacturers with technology that keeps drivers safe, green and connected. That same technology expertise is carried through to the aftermarket. With increasing business and network development in the ASEAN aftermarket, DPSS (Delphi Product & Service Solutions) will provide OE (Original Equipment) quality parts and services for the ASEAN aftermarket to support growth and meet the growing needs of the Malaysian automotive segment.
UMW Advantech Sdn. Bhd. is currently in the process of appointing authorised dealers for Delphi aftermarket products starting first in Kuala Lumpur and two other major cities in Malaysia.
“We appreciate Delphi’s proactive efforts and dedication as shown by the quality of the products and service,” said Mr. Megat Shahrul Azmir, Executive Director of UMW Manufacturing & Engineering. “It symbolises Delphi’s OE heritage and technological expertise in the aftermarket, worldwide”.
“Malaysia continues to be a key market for Delphi in the Asia Pacific region and Delphi is committed to grow the business in Malaysia and ASEAN countries, said Lucia V. Moretti, President, Delphi Product & Service Solutions. “We are very happy to sign the agreement with UMW as they clearly see the value Delphi can bring to their distribution network. We see this as a significant development for both companies.”
