SHAH ALAM (April 22): Petronas Lubricants Marketing Malaysia (PLMM), together with Petronas Lubricants International  (PLI),  has launched Malaysia’s first Petronas auto expert service centre, offering top-end products and high quality car maintenance services to customers.

‘’We want customers to experience the difference at this service centre, where we offer services under one roof, from vehicle inspection right up to tyre changes,” he said, adding the centre also offers Petronas products including premium engine oils that are acknowledged as the best at protecting engines.

 Syed Zainal Abidin said Petronas welcomes potential partners in its bid to open 100 such service centres nationwide.

‘’We work with business partners like Autohaus, who share our vision of offering reliable engine care with the best fluids and technology to consumers.

‘’Those with the expertise and experience in this area and are keen to bring our brand to life, we will support in various aspects including marketing and branding, technical training and consulting as well as innovative tools and equipment,’’ he added.
