EON to close 10 sales branches, 4 service branches

Edaran Otomobil Nasional Berhad (EON) is closing 10 sales branches and four service branches effective Sept 1, under the rationalisation of its operations.

“The move is as a result of the weaker sentiment for the passenger car market that has seen a downtrend in recent months,” it said on Aug 11.

EON said after the rationalisation, it would have 42 EON-owned sales branches and 33 service branches.

On July 25, it announced a voluntary separation scheme for its total 2,500 employees as part of its rationalisation exercise in its efforts to address the challenging auto market.

The sales branches to be closed are at Jalan Templer, Old Klang Road and SS2 in the Klang Valley; Bukit Mertajam and Jalan Makloom in Penang, Jalan Kampar in Ipoh, Kangar in Perlis; Johor Jaya in Johor Bahru; Bentong in Pahang and Labuan.

EON reassured that there would be sufficient alternative EON sales outlets in major cities of Ipoh, Johor Bahu, and George Town to serve its customers.

It said the after-sales service branches to close are at Kangar, Bentong, Labuan, and Lahad Datu in Sabah.

EON said its sales and service network was supported by 116 authorised sales dealers and 200 franchised service dealers for the Proton marque and 71 Proton parts dealers.

It added that EON customers could also go to Proton Edar Sdn Bhd’s after-sales network where EON was not present.
