UMW Toyota Motor has announced that its new body and paint centre in Kuching, Sarawak, is now fully operational. Located at the Pending Industrial Area, the facility is operated by Boulevard Jaya and complements the Toyota sales and service centre located along Jalan Datuk Tawi Sli in Kuching.

The new body and paint centre was set up with an investment of approximately RM16 million, which includes the cost of purchasing about three aces of land. Within the built-up area of one acre, there are 10 bays as well as a full-sized paint oven to ensure a proper paint finish on vehicles that adheres to the standards set by Toyota.

Owners can also have their vehicles damaged in an accident repaired by trained personnel, using body alignment equipment approved by Toyota Motor Corporation. Assistance with insurance claims are also provided at the facility.

“As the authorised distributor of Toyota vehicles in Malaysia, we have a responsibility to ensure that when our customers require repairs to their vehicle after an accident, they can get the best services from trained personnel. This ensures that vehicle will be restored in accordance with Toyota’s high standards,” said Akio Takeyama, deputy chairman of UMW Toyota Motor.
