No more delivery delays? Proton X50 production resumes at Tanjung Malim 01

December’s downpour led to some of the worst floods faced by Malaysians in decades which in turn disrupted many industries, automotive included. Due to the floods, some plants’ production had to be put on hold and that included Proton’s Tanjung Malim plant.

The state-of-the-art facility wasn’t directly affected by the floods but some of its parts suppliers were. As a result, production of the Proton X50 was put on pause but the Malaysian Tiger wasn’t just going to rest on its laurels and eat cake.

“The floods affected the livelihoods and homes of many families in Proton’s local community, but it was during these trying times that our sense of responsibility came to the fore and we stepped forward to help anyone we could. The quick restart of production also means we will have more stock to fulfil orders from our customers, so we are looking forward to having a great start to 2022” added Roslan.
