The Free Industrial Zone of the Senai International Airport in Johor Bahru will be the new home of the BMW Parts Distribution Centre for the Asia Pacific Region.
Together with Pan Asia Logistics, BMW Group Malaysia held a ground breaking ceremony for the new facility that will be built on the 25-acre plot of land.
When operational, the new logistics warehouse and parts distribution centre will provide support to 22 countries in the region. It will also replace the current Parts Distribution Facility for the BMW Group which is within the Free Trade Zone of the Port of Tanjung Pelepas, Johor Bahru.
Mr. Alan Harris, Managing Director & CEO of BMW Group Malaysia said: “Malaysia continues to be a strategic hub and a key growth market for the BMW Group in the South East Asia region. This is clearly demonstrated with the expansion of our headquarters, Regional Training Centre and Group Date Centre in Cyberjaya, our local assembly facilities at the BMW Group Assembly Plant in Kulim, Kedah as well as our established network of dealerships across the country.”
The Free Trade Zone there is part of Senai Airport Terminal Services Sdn Bhd, which is one of MMC Corporation Berhad’s core businesses under its Ports and Logistics pillar.
Dato’ Sri Che Khalib Mohamad Noh, Group Managing Director of MMC Corporation, meanwhile, said: "We are very pleased to welcome Pan Asia Logistics as the logistics and supply chain solution provider for BMW regional distribution centre in Senai Airport Free industrial Zone. Their presence would further strengthen the business activities in Free Industrial Zone which is currently earmarked for manufacturing and logistics activities.”
