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.

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.

New showroom will be among the greenest in the nation

January 5, 2018 / 1191 / Blog, News
Groundbreaking event

Today’s groundbreaking signals the start of construction of the Ban Hoe Seng Auto’s new showroom and service centre in Bandar Baru Sri Klebang, Ipoh.

Traditional ceremony for the new showroom

Even the rain could not dampen the spirit and the support of the guests. Dato Lim Si Boon led the traditional ceremony with a speech and then shovels were dug deep as the team sported construction hats and the guests cheered as they huddled under umbrellas.

Mother Nature provided a challenging yet hopeful backdrop to the ceremony as rain fell and skies were grey.  Guests were in great spirits and some implied that rain is a good sign of fortune for the construction. Around 80 guests attended, including: Lim Pui San, Dato’ Syed Mokhtar Bin Syed Iddris, Ignatius Chew, Chong Wai Lin, Kym Looe, Sunita Prabhakaran and Mazlina bte Mohamad.

Top-level environmentally friendly features

Doors will open in June 2019 and the 41,000 square foot dealership will be a magnificent showcase of green building architecture and the latest in customer service design. It is targeting the highest-level sustainability certificate, platinum for Green Building Index, to become one of the greenest buildings in Malaysia.

Top-level environmentally friendly features maximise resource efficiency and minimise waste, energy and water usage.  Large glass panels and skylights optimise natural daylight; combined with energy efficient Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) and motion sensors to automatically switch on and off when a person walks under it.

It will feature an air conditioning capture and rainwater collection system to self-irrigate the surrounding landscape, flush toilets and wash cars.  A green living wall will bring a breath of fresh air to workers throughout the day. While smart screens will proudly display the energy and water usage in real time to visitors.

Oldest Honda dealer with the newest showroom in Perak

Director Ban Hoe Seng Auto Dato’ Lim Si Boon said: “Our aim is to pursue growth through the pursuit of quality. We hold the accolade of being one of the oldest Honda car dealerships in Malaysia and will soon have the newest Honda showroom in Ipoh but what really matters is how we achieve that through our lasting footprint on the environment and how we please our customers.

“This year the car dealership marked its fiftieth year and we continue to transform and evolve our efforts through strong customer values.  Inside our showroom and care centre is a passionate team of dependable people working together, who genuinely care for every Honda, and every owner.

“We have a responsibility to make things better for others and we serve people with the joy of creating value in their everyday lives. Honda has been wonderful to work with. The team are extremely supportive of our efforts of continuous improvement and our investment in Ipoh.

“On behalf of the team, I express our heartfelt thanks to all our customers and those that live in the local communities we serve. Your tremendous support has been vital to our growth and development.

“We look forward to making further strides to continue to bring joy to Honda drivers all over Perak.”

Open as usual

Business is open as usual. The showroom on Jalan Kampar (now known as Jalan Raja Permaisuri Bainun) is open Monday – Saturday 8.30am – 6.00pm and Sunday 10.30am – 2.00pm. Find us here.

These days, we are spoilt for choice. There are so many options available to us with just a touch of a finger away that we have too many options when it comes to most things. Whether it is the new clothes you want to buy or the real money casino you wish to start an account with, the process of narrowing down your shortlist of potential options can be a bit stressful sometimes.

It is important that we don’t moan too much about this issue, as only a few short years ago did we have a very limited choice of most things.
