Nasim, the official distributor of Peugeot in Malaysia, has launched a Peugeot Blue Box in Malacca. The new outlet is operated and owned by Sin Kwung Premium and is located in Kawasan Perindustrian Malim Jaya.

Among the services offered are basic servicing such as oil change, wheel alignment and balancing, body and paint services as well as windscreen replacement and vehicle inspection. Like all Blue Boxes, it is equipped with Peugeot’s Planet System Diagnostic tool, and has three service bays with the capacity to handle up to 10 cars a day.

Nasim has big plans for the brand, and will launch seven more new 3S centres this year after Malacca. They will be in Kota Kinabalu, Kota Bahru, Balakong, Sungai Petani, Kuantan, Kepong and Seremban. Once all are on board, Nasim will have 26 outlets nationwide.

In addition, Datuk Samson Anand George, COO of Nasim revealed that the company will relocate its flagship Blue Box in Glenmarie to a new 82,000 sq ft facility, also in Glenmarie. This is to cater to the increasing after sales volume.

Nasim is targeting sales of 7,000 Peugeots this year. For the first five months of 2011 (Jan-May) the Naza Group company sold 2,615 units, a huge 152% jump from sales in the same period last year.
