Tan Chong Motor Holdings Berhad (TCMH) was incorporated in Malaysia on 14 October 1972. From its humble beginning as the distributor of small motor vehicles back in the 1950s, TCMH Group (the Group) is today one of the largest national conglomerates involved in a myriad of business activities; from the assembly and marketing of motor vehicles and auto parts manufacturing to property development as well as trading in various heavy machineries, industrial equipment and consumer products - both locally and abroad. As part of a restructuring exercise to strengthen our foothold as an industry major player; in 1998 various business interests of TCMH abroad were eventually demerged and subsequently listed on The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited under the Tan Chong International Limited flagship. This was followed by the demerger of its automotive parts division, non-motor division involving cosmetics, undergarments, and the distribution of heavy machinery as well as tourism-related businesses; which was subsequently listed on the Main Board of Bursa Malaysia Berhad in 1999 under APM Automotive Holdings Berhad and Warisan TC Holdings Berhad respectively. These exercises have enabled the Group to realign its focus on motor industry business. TCMH is basically an investment holding company and the Group’s current principal activities among others are; assembly and distribution of motor vehicles, provision of after-sales services and motor related financial services such as hire purchase, an insurance agency, and leasing. On top of that, the Group is the franchise holder and exclusive distributor of Nissan passenger and light commercial vehicles as well as Renault vehicles in Malaysia, with 98 sales branches and authorized dealership outlets nationwide; supported by 91 after-sales service centres. In addition, we are also the franchise holder and exclusive distributor for trucks and buses under the UD Trucks and Silverbus brands, with 12 sales centres and 16 sales dealers, supported by 10 after-sales service centres and 36 authorised service dealers; with a market share of 15% for heavy commercial vehicles (HCV), 8% for light commercial vehicles (LCV) and 33% for buses, thus establishing us as one of the leading commercial vehicle distributors in Malaysia. The two assembly plants in Segambut (Kuala Lumpur) and Serendah (Selangor) have very close capacity; both plants together can deliver 100,000 units a year with additional shift and reasonable overtime; the Group’s vehicles sales enjoyed a market share of 11.93% for non-national cars and 5.21% for the industry-wide market as of September 2012
