Volvo makes the long due official re-entry into the Sarawak market with the grand opening of a Volvo 3S centre in Kuching recently. The appointed dealer operating this new facility is Fotroende Automobile (derived from the Swedish word “Förtroende” which means “confidence”.)
Volvo Kuching is located along Jalan Tun Jugah and is built to follow the latest showroom and service standards that is required for all Volvo dealerships termed the Volvo Retail Experience or VRE. With this, customers can expect a customer-centric, Scandinavian-inspired experience.
Managing director of Volvo Car Malaysia, Lennart Stegland said during the launch, “Sarawak’s potential in the premium car market cannot be understated. It is vital that we regain a foothold in Kuching before expanding into other cities within the state. We have worked hard to ensure that the brand is represented by competent and passionate dealer partners that will serve our customers well.”
“VRE is based on Volvo’s brand philosophy which revolves around people and what’s important to them. I am confident that Fotroende Automobile will deliver the expected level of service to our loyal customers in Kuching,” Stegland adds.
Meanwhile, David Lai, the managing director of Fotroende Automobile commented, “Demand for the brand is strong, especially with the arrival of exciting new models from Volvo. We are proud that have been chosen by Volvo Car Malaysia to represent the brand here in Kuching,” said David Lai, the Managing Director of Fotroende Automobile.
