Awarded ‘Gold’ for being the ‘Greenest’ in Perak
We’re proud to announce that we have opened the first car showroom in Malaysia to be certified gold in the green building index (GBI), and the first gold-rated building in Perak, on 30 April 2019.
Our new Honda 3S centre, is a shining example of sustainability, with its top-level environmentally friendly features that maximise resources efficiency and minimise waste, energy and water usage.
Our Director, Dato’ Lim Si Boon said: “We’re doubling our site but not our environmental impact. 2019 is going to be a huge year of overall growth for the business. We’ve invested heavily in our future and technology to facilitate the expansion. Every day we are committed to achieving higher levels of performance in sustainability and customer care”.
Two is always better than one
Under Ban Hoe Seng Auto we will expand our business to two sites in Ipoh. The new fully-fledged 3S (Sales, Service and Spare Parts) centre will be located at Bandar Baru Sri Klebang and the original showroom will remain at Jalan Raja Permaisuri Bainun (Jalan Kampar) in Ipoh while the Service centre off Jalan Sungai Pari will be moved to Sri Klebang.
The new 3S centre has 21 service bays that provide a quick and convenient service to more customers. Simply sit back and enjoy the café and family area.
“A dual location will allow us to display more inventory, more choice than ever before while improving the after-sales customer experience to continue to bring joy to Honda drivers all over Perak”, said Dato’ Lim.
Environmental sustainability is a positive step forward in making our world a better place to live for the generations to come.
