Mach 1 has been appointed as the official dealer for JCB in West Malaysia, and will be exclusively responsible for the region. Mach 1 will operate from a combination of two flagship integrated JCB sales, service and spare parts centres (3S) in Kuala Lumpur and Johor Bahru, along with four additional sales and spare part branches (2S) that the company plans to open before the end of 2019. The first of these will be located at Penang and Batu Pahat, with branches at Ipoh and Kuantan to follow. 
Mach 1, formed in 2000, has a strong understanding of the market, as well as the specific needs and day-to-day demands of its Malaysian customers. From its growing network in West Malaysia, Mach 1 JCB will be perfectly positioned to provide its customers in the construction, industrial, oil & gas and plantation sectors with significantly improved access to JCB’s product range, in addition to delivering market-leading aftermarket support. 
Pan Chee Seng, Group Executive Director, Mach 1 Group, said: “I am delighted that JCB has chosen us to represent the brand across West Malaysia. JCB is a brand that has always interested me greatly and I am confident that with our experience in West Malaysia, we will be able to provide world class customer support to our customers, whether they may be existing owners of JCB products or new ones experiencing the brand for the first time. I was attracted by JCB's extensive portfolio of products, especially the JS205 tracked excavator. With its simple and mechanical engine able to tolerate a variety of fuel qualities, I firmly believe this is one machine of many that the Malaysian customer will find extremely effective in supporting their operations. The JCB telehandler and backhoe loader, speak for themselves as world number 1 products in their categories”.

Mach 1 will ensure that customers in West Malaysia will enjoy easy access to JCB’s construction equipment product range, including the world’s number one telehandler and backhoe loader, to excavators, skid steer loaders and compaction equipment. Mach 1’s combined customer facilities at Kuala Lumpur and Johor Bahru offer 10 service bays and 30 dedicated, fully-trained staff, backed up by sales and after sales personnel with up to 25 years’ experience in the construction equipment industry. Customers can expect world class support through Mach 1’s understanding of the local market, combined with JCB’s commitment to customer uptime through support in the aftermarket. 
Vipin Sondhi, JCB’s Managing Director & CEO for India, Southeast Asia and Pacific comments: “We are delighted to appoint Mach 1 as our official dealer for JCB in West Malaysia. Mach 1 shares our ambition to be the number one brand for construction equipment in the country. Through their commitment to people, training, processes and distribution, they share JCB’s drive and determination to support our customers in Malaysia. Mach 1’s heritage and JCB’s world class service, backed by LiveLink, our advanced telematics technology, will help deliver a proposition that is fully attuned to the needs of the local market. It is exciting for us to see the results of the continued investment our network is making to better support our growing customer base with new facilities thus allowing us to get even closer to our customers in the region.” 
Max Lytle, Regional Director, JCB Southeast Asia comments: “I am delighted that Mach 1 and JCB will be joining forces across West Malaysia. We have been extremely impressed with Mach 1’s customer first approach across their existing brands and I have no doubt that this will continue for JCB products, providing our customers with the products and aftermarket backup they need to support their operations.”
