HT Group is giving away 500 selected Nexen tyres and 200 bottles of Mobil Super 2000 engine oil to healthcare frontliners.
HT Group, the exclusive distributor of Nexen Tire in Malaysia, kicked off the HT Group Frontliner Support Program in a show of appreciation for the efforts of frontliners in battling the Covid-19 outbreak.
"We are giving away 500 selected Nexen tyres and 200 bottles of Mobil Super 2000 engine oil to healthcare frontliners. The aim is to thank and show solidarity to them for their sacrifice in combatting the epidemic. This initiative is part of our Corporate Social Responsibility efforts to ease their burden during these difficult times, " said Director Terence Tay.
The HT Group Frontliners Support Program, he continued, began in May at Hawk Tyre Service outlets, Johor Bahru. The response was so good that the Group decided to extend the programme to Klang Velley.
To be eligible for this programme, one must be a healthcare frontliner from the company's selected government hospitals in the Johor Bahru and Klang Valley. These include Hospital Sungai Buloh, Tengku Ampuan Rahimah, Hospital Ampang, Hospital Selayang, Hospital Serdang, Hospital Sungai Buloh, Hospital Shah Alam, Hospital Kajang, Hospital Banting, Hospital Kuala Lumpur, Pusat Perubatan Univesiti Malaya, Hospital Putrajaya, Hospital Permai, Hospital Sultan Ismail and Hospital Sultanah Aminah.
"All the frontliner needs to do is message us the required details such as full name as per identity card, contact number, car model and tyre size, as well as a picture of his/her medical license/employee identification/official probationary letter from hospital, to stand a chance of getting 2 pieces of Nexen tyres or a bottle of Mobil Super 2000 engine oil for free. "
HT Group launched the program on their Facebook page, and they ran out of stock within 3 hours after the launch. "The response was overwhelming. We are now fully booked till end of July, 2020. Tyre installation and other services are also made available at our participating Nexen Tire outlets and Hawk Tyre Service outlets at a chargeble rate. "
"Offering free Nexen tyres and Mobil engine oil is our way of supporting these heroes. This program allows our frontliners to have the comfort of knowing that their safety on the roads is taken care of, giving them peace of mind while they are busy attending to patients during this pandemic. As for us, it helps us to create brand awareness of our sole distribution products - Nexen Tire and Mobil engine oil. "
Tay also revealed their plan to extend the programme to other frontliners such as army, police, firefighter and many more. "We are working with more brand owners to see whether we could do more and continue to support our frontliners for an extended time, as well as extending this programme to other states to benefit more frontliners. "
Apart from this programme, Tay said, the Group also provides reusable face masks for all HT employees. Other efforts including providing face masks and hand sanitisers for their dealers and reusable face masks for their social media followers as lucky draw gift.
"We also printed standard operating procedures (SOP) for our dealers and held meetings with them to advise them on the implementation of the new SOP. This is to ensure the safety and well-being of their customers and staff, " he added.
“我们送出500条特选的耐克森轮胎和200瓶Mobil Super 2000机油给前线医护人员，旨在向对抗疫情无私奉献他们表示支持和感谢。该倡议是我们公司企业社会责任的一部分，以减轻医护人员在这艰难时期的负担。”董事Terence Tay表示。

“提供免费的耐克森轮胎和Mobil Super 2000 机油是我们支持这些英雄的方式。该计划让医护前线人员知道，有我们在照顾他们的道路安全，让他们能够在疫情期间安心地照顾病人。至于我们，这个计划协助我们建立我们所分销的品牌知名度—耐克森轮胎和Mobil 机油。”
