German luxury automaker Bayerische Motoren Werke (BMW) AG said its authorised dealer in Myanmar, Prestige Automobiles, has opened the country’s first BMW sales and service facility in Yangon.
“The move is part of our strategy to expand our reach to more customers in this part of the world, and to provide local customers with the BMW products that best cater to their needs,” said Ramesh Divyanathan, director of Sales Channel Development and Customer Relations of BMW Group Asia.
Located at No.485, corner of Pyay road and Narnattaw street, Kamayut township, the three-storey BMW facility occupies a total area of 6,000 square metres.
“Our showroom facility, which took nine months to complete, is currently the most advanced car showroom and service centre in Myanmar,” Chan Mya, managing director of Prestige Automobiles, said.
The new facility comprises a display area that can hold up to eight BMW vehicles, along with a customer lounge area on the first floor. The second floor houses the sales office and meeting rooms, while the service centre is located on the third floor with four working bays that can service up to more than 200 cars per month, BMW said.
The aftersales facility also comes with body and paint repair services that can handle cosmetic and structural repairs of damaged vehicles. The facility has more than 80 visitor parking lots located both indoors and outdoors.
“… we have state-of-the-art servicing equipment and facilities. For instance, our car body repair tools are able to handle not only surface repairs, but structural repairs of damaged vehicles as well,” Chan Mya said.
Prestige Automobiles Co (PAC) Ltd is a subsidiary of Octagon International Services Co Ltd (OIS), a distributor of machinery and vehicles.
