A large group of MASBA members, took the time off and made a very informative afternoon visit to Volvo Car Manufacturing Malaysia Sdn Bhd with factory in Shah Alam. The company was founded in 1966 and the Volvo 144 installed the year after at this very first car manufacturer in Malaysia. Volvo still maintains a strong commitment to Malaysia and the region.

Mr. Mark Hallum, Managing Director, elegantly guided the group through the assembly plant and enthusiastically informed about the history and heritage of the car manufacturer.

We were all impressed by the manually operated assembly halls, and learned that the company is presently in a very interesting transition and improvement phase.

Traditional Swedish values like safety, quality assurance and respect for the approximately 500 employees (among which 10% are women), remain key issues for Volvo.  

A big THANK YOU to Mr. Mark Hallum and his staff for their efforts to make sure that Volvo continuous to be known for its excellence and purpose to make the lives better and less complicated for people.
