独家新闻:Hyundai关停位于大马的亚太总部,将迁至印尼

尽管鲜为人知,但Hyundai汽车集团(与Hyundai Sime Darby Motors无关)在马来西亚是有一个办公处的,它就位于Mutiara Damansara,与Volvo分销商Ingress Swede Automobile相邻。这是一栋平平无奇的办公楼,此处是Hyundai培训学院(HTA)的所在地,也是Hyundai汽车的亚太区域总部。自2015年启用以来,在这17,965平方英尺的训练中心/地区总部内,马来西亚的团队一直为亚太地区32个国家的Hyundai公司雇员提供销售和售后技能的培训。这也是为什么虽然左驾版Genesis和其它Hyundai车型没有在马来西亚上市,却经常会出现在Mutiara Damansara地区,因为这些车子时不时的也需要打油和洗车。目前办公室正在清理中,展示区已经清空了今天我们收到消息称,Hyundai培训学院将会在今年年尾关停,Hyundai会将这个机构搬迁至印尼。马来西亚还在期待成为东南亚地区的汽车行业中心,而这个消息无疑是狠狠地打了我们的脸。大部分在此处工作的马来西亚人已经被解雇,而少数仍在岗位上的,也将在新印尼团队的交接工作完成后离开
