UD Trucks and sole distributor partner, Tan Chong Industrial Equipment Sdn Bhd (TCIE), have recently delivered the first unit of UD Croner in Malaysia to Ong Brothers Petroleum Sdn Bhd. Launched just recently in August 2017, the UD Croner is an all-new medium duty truck developed to go the extra mile by helping customers maximize productivity.
Ong Brothers Petroleum Sdn Bhd distributes a wide range of petroleum products for both home and industrial consumption. Established in 1962, the company has been in operation for more than 50 years and is currently based in Kepong. Ong Brothers Petroleum distributes quality petroleum products such as engine oil, mineral oil, industry lubricant oil, petroleum jelly fuels, metalworking fluids, cleaners and paraffin waxes within Peninsula Malaysia.
“We have been a UD Truck customer since 1984 when we purchased the Nissan Diesel CMF truck, back when UD Trucks was formerly known as Nissan Diesel. From then on, we have been adding more UD Trucks to our fleet and now, we have a total of 8 units, including this new UD Croner. We have our complete trust and confidence in UD Trucks’ because their trucks are reliable, robust, fuel efficient, safe and most importantly it is customizable. Furthermore, we have developed a strong and firm relationship with the sales personnel from TCIE that dates back to the first UD Truck we purchased through him. We are satisfied with his service as well as TCIE’s comprehensive aftermarket service,” said Ong Thai Hean, Managing Director, Ong Brothers Petroleum Sdn Bhd.
According to Ong Kah San, Fuel Department Manager, Ong Brothers Petroleum Sdn Bhd., “One of our key business priorities is to minimize operating costs amidst rising fuel cost, while keeping efficiency and productivity running. As such, we needed a fuel-efficient truck that can deliver extra productivity and superior uptime. It is also very crucial for us to keep our trucks in a healthy state, therefore, regular servicing is required. The location of the service centre is very important, it must be conveniently located and easily accessible for truck maintenance and service thus, we are fortunate to have a TCIE service centre near our office. With all these offered by UD Trucks and TCIE, we are definitely looking forward to adding more UD Trucks to our fleet.”
The all-new UD Croner is specifically made for growth markets like Malaysia, with versatility, uptime and safety in mind. It is a truck designed for reliability and built with robust and quality components to deliver extra productivity and superior uptime. Croner’s superiority comes from the best of three world – UD Trucks’ Japanese heritage and craftsmanship, Volvo Group’s solid global technology and safety value, and Tan Chong Industrial Equipment’s vast local knowledge and resources.
