UMW Toyota Motor (UMWT) has joined the list of companies temporarily ceasing their operations following the announcement on the Movement Control Order by the Malaysian Government recently.

UMWT released a statement that all Authorised Toyota and Lexus dealerships will cease its usual day-to-day operations temporarily, but remain contactable to all customers effective 18 March onwards.

The safety of our employees, our stakeholders and all of our Customers is paramount to us. Based on direction from the government, despite the shutdown of our operations, we will continue to be available to our customers for any assistance they may require with regard to their Toyota and Lexus vehicles.

Mr. Ravindran K, President, UMWT

Likewise, Assembly Services Sdn. Bhd.’s manufacturing operations will also be suspended on 18 March onwards. At the moment, there is no plan for any specific manufacturing suspension outside Malaysia, resulting from the situation in Malaysia.

In another recent development following the announcement of the Season 3 Round 4 of the Toyota Gazoo Racing Festival to be held as a “closed-door” event scheduled to take place on the 18-19 April 2020 at the Sepang International Circuit will be cancelled in compliance with the Government’s pro-active measures to contain the transmission of the Covid-19 pandemic.

We are closely monitoring the situation and for the protection and safety of our staff and customers kept in mind, we will consider and make decisions guided by the direction from the Government,
