HICOM DRB-HICOM Berhad is one of Malaysia's leading corporations, involved in the automotive manufacturing, assembly and distribution industry through its involvement in the passenger car and four wheel drive vehicle market segment, the national truck project and the national motorcycle project. DRB-HICOM assembles cars in Malaysia for TATA Motors, Honda, Isuzu, Suzuki, Mercedes-Benz and Volkswagen, with plans for expansion. Besides automotive concerns, the group's core business focuses are in the services and property & infrastructure sectors.Originally, it was incorporated in 1980 as the The Heavy Industries Corporation of Malaysia Berhad (HICOM). It experienced rapid growth and in 1996 merged with Diversified Resources Berhad (DRB) to form the biggest conglomerate in Malaysia.
DRB-HICOM is currently evaluating whether or not to keep the Tata franchise in Malaysia, according to DRB-HICOM group managing director Datuk Mohd Khamil Jamil. Options currently are the logical three – A) keep as is, B) expand, or C) let go. According to Business Times, DRB-HICOM officials will be meeting up with representatives from Tata in May 2008 to discuss the future of the brand in Malaysia.
The current agreement between DRB-HICOM 70% owned Scott & English (M) Sdn Bhd and Tata Motors will expire by June 2008.
Tata is currently ramping up efforts in our region, with the new Tata Xenon (shown above) launched in Thailand not too long ago. Tata has been constantly featured in world headlines for the past few months thanks to its Tata Nano low cost car project and its recent acquisition of the Jaguar and Land Rover premium brands.
