The YHI Million Ringgit Club 2016 Awards Presentation Night was held on 8th April, 2017 at the Dorsett Grand Hotel, Subang to recognise the efforts and outstanding performance of dealers.
“First and foremost, I would like to thank all of our business partners who had supported us throughout the years. This year, Yokohama is celebrating 100 years in the business and it would continue its focus on branding and quality to support the business of each and every one of you here. We at YHI Malaysia would continue our business culture to meet all your needs for achieving win-win results,” said YHI Malaysia Sdn Bhd General Manager Lee Tech Hock during his welcome speech.
The event also served as a yearly get-together for YHI Malaysia in showing appreciation to its supportive Million Ringgit Dealers, Yokohama Club Network dealers and rim dealers.
Following Lee’s speech was that from Toro Suzuki, the newly appointed President of Yokohama Asia Co, Ltd. He expressed honour in delivering his speech and launched the new Yokohama BluEarth-ES 32.
“Malaysia is one of Yokohama’s top priority markets in ASEAN. Although the Malaysia market is tough, it is still full of big future potential. The 100th anniversary is our passing point, not the end of the story. We will keep going for our future along with all of you. Without the success story in ASEAN countries, Yokohama has no bright future,” he said.
The new Yokohama BluEarth-ES 32 was described by Daisuke Kanda, General Manager-Marketing of Yokohama Asia Co, Ltd as an environmentally, human and social friendly tyre. Designed especially for passenger and compact cars, the new tyre has enhanced wet and dry grip, long tread life and improved durability. It uses Yokohama Rubber’s proprietary nano blend compound comprising various materials, including orange oil, which creates an optimal balance of fuel efficiency, superior wet grip performance and wear resistance.
It is available in 73 sizes, from 13 to 18 inches. For profiles of 225mm and above, the new tyre has a straight groove added, making it safer for the bigger sizes.
During the event, YHI Malaysia presented 23 ‘Million Ringgit Club 2016’ awards, 3 Outstanding Dealer Awards 2016 (Alloy Wheels) and 1 Most Improved Dealer Awards 2016 (Alloy Wheels).
The VIPs that night included YHI International Limited Advisor Tay Tiang Guan, YHI Corporation (Singapore) Pte Ltd Chief Operating Officer Alex Ong, The Yokohama Rubber Co, Ltd Assistant Manager of Tire Overseas Sales & Marketing Dept, Sales & Marketing Section, Yuki Iwasa, Sanko Progress Mabis Corporation Senior Managing Director/COO Takashi Matsui, and Sanko Progress Mabis Corporation (Singapore Branch) General Manager Koji Sato.
