The Meet & Greet Dinner was an important occasion for both companies after 13 years of cooperation.
Easa Trading Sdn Bhd hosted a special Meet & Great dinner with Sailun’s top management recently at the spectacular Renaissance Johor Bahru Hotel. The event on 17th March was well attended by 60 Easa Trading’s dealers from all over Malaysia who sell Sailun’s passenger car radial tyres and truck and bus radial tyres.
This was an important occasion for both companies after 13 years of cooperation. It marked the first time that Sailun Group Co, Ltd Chairman and President Yuan Zhong Xue had set foot in Malaysia as well as displayed the seriousness and commitment of them working together to better serve Malaysian customers.
In his opening speech, Easa Trading Managing Director Tan Heng Huat welcomed and thanked the dealers for taking the time off from their busy schedule to attend the event. He stressed that the efforts and strong support from them was an important contribution to the company’s fast growth and progress.
Moving forward, Tan said the company would continue to strive for mutual development with focus on quality as the root and sincerity as its top priority.
Meanwhile, Yuan said: “Sailun is a young company with only 16 years of experience in the tyre industry. Our development in Malaysia is pretty good with the choice of a right partner – Easa Trading – from the very beginning. We are really grateful to Easa Trading and its dealers for their unwavering support over the years, especially during the initial state of trial and error for product innovation. I was extremely happy to meet each and every one of you here for the first time and thank you personally.”
The similarity between Sailun and the other tyre manufacturers, he pointed out, was in producing tyres but the difference was that Sailun was made up of a team of tyre professionals. “Our team consists of professors, researchers and teachers that are involved in the rubber and tyre technology. I was the professor and director of Qingdao University of Science & Technology National Engineering Research Center for Rubber and Tire before we established Sailun. We never give up tyre education and research, and we are always at the forefront of technology.”
He revealed that Cooper Tire & Rubber Co, Ltd and Sailun Vietnam Co, Ltd had agreed to set up a joint venture to build a manufacturing plant with the capacity to produce more than 2 million Truck and Bus Radial (TBR) tyres annually. The new plant would be located near Ho Chi Minh City at the site of Sailun Vietnam’s existing operations and would be an automated and digitalised plant.
“We spent 10 years to develop a new rubber compound that provides better friction, tear and cut resistance as well as improved grip performance. It would be used in our tyres sometime next year and some of these tyres would be available in the Malaysian market.”
He assured the dealers on the importance of the Malaysian market. He pointed out that the company had sent sales people to Malaysia in the earlier years to promote its products. But in recent years, the company had changed its approach.
“We sent our engineers here to understand the local applications and requirements to come out with the right products for the Malaysian market. This shows our commitment to the market as well as to product excellence,” he added.
Among the highlights of the night were the performance of a lion dance that kicked off the event, a magic show and entertainment.
