SDS Bakeries Sdn Bhd Wins Grand Prize of a Mercedes-Benz CLA 200 and a Trip to Japan in the 2017/2018 FUSO Diamond Contest Grand Draw

Buy a truck and win a heck of a lot. This seems to be the what happens when you buy a FUSO  truck (or more) and you then get to participate in a lucky draw like the recently concluded 2017/2018 FUSO Diamond Contest Grand Draw. Organised by Mercedes-Benz Malaysia Commercial Vehicles (MBM CV), the Grand Draw’s ultimate prize or prizes, which is a Mercedes-Benz CLA 200 and a trip to Japan was won by SDS Bakeries Sdn Bhd

The Grand Draw event was recently held at a gala dinner over at the One World Hotel. The lucky winner was randomly drawn from a pool of 2,176 entries comprising FUSO customers throughout Malaysia. Brothers, Tan Kim Chai and Tan Kim Seng, who manage SDS Bakeries Sdn Bhd were overjoyed at winning the 2017/2018 FUSO Diamond Contest Grand Prize. They came away with the CLA200 mentioned above as well as that trip to Japan.

SDS Bakeries Sdn Bhd have been a customer of MBM CV for about seven years.They first purchased their first FUSO truck seven years ago and have been a customer till today. According to SDS Bakeries Sdn Bhd Manager, Mr Tan Kim Seng. “Quality trucks with low downtime and good aftersales service was the reason for our continued support for FUSO trucks. We bought our first FUSO truck back in 2011 as we wanted to expand our business."  

They currently have more than 150 FUSO trucks and intend to expand in the near future. Baking is good business folks. And you can win a Mercedes-Benz car too.

Aside from the grand prize winners, 26 other lucky winners also came away with some great prizes. Global Inter-Dream (M) Sdn Bhd, Heng Seng & Company Sdn Bhd, TJM Marketing Sdn Bhd and ABX Express (M) Sdn Bhd each won a trip to Japan as well and service vouchers worth RM5,000, RM4,000, RM3,000 and RM2,000, taking the first, second, third and fourth places respectively. 10  FUSO customers received consolation prizes of service vouchers worth RM2,000 each, while 12 other lucky FUSO customers each received service vouchers worth RM1,000.

Attendees also won some prizes too. 20 lucky winners took home a Mercedes-Benz watch, with the 21st winner, Mr. Tan Se Hooi, winning the gala night’s mystery draw which was also a trip to Japan.

“Our customers have always been our main priority as they put their faith and trust in their FUSO trucks to ensure smooth day-to-day business operations. The FUSO Diamond Contest is our way to meet and thank them personally for their continuous trust, loyalty and support. " said Mercedes-Benz Malaysia, Commercial Vehicles, Vice President, Mr. Albert Yee.

"The 2017/2018 contest received a total of 2,176 entries, and we are overwhelmed by the positive response from our valued customers. We congratulate all winners, and look forward to continue engaging our customers by delivering trucks you can trust and unparalleled service quality,” he continued.

MBM CV are the authorised dealers for FUSO trucks in Malaysia and have a nationwide network comprising 37 FUSO dealers. The FUSO brand caters to the medium-range commercial vehicle market segment with light, medium and heavy-duty FUSO trucks. The FUSO light duty trucks (FE71PB, FE83PE, FE83PG, FE85PG, FG83PE [4X4]) are commonly used for short distance distribution, inter-state logistic transportation and tipper operations, while the medium duty trucks (FM65FJ, FM65FN) are used as compactor trucks, roll-on-roll-off trucks, tankers and for long distance logistics. FUSO heavy-duty trucks (FN62FM) are commonly used in quarry sites and also as tipper trucks.

So in order to reward their customers, the FUSO Diamond contest was created. This was the fifth time the contest was organised and it actually means that five FUSO customers have won big time. It is also a good marketing tool as the word spreads in many ways. It actually gives customers quite a good chance in winning something big. Take for instance this time around, the actual chance of winning a Mercedes-Benz CLA200 is actually only 2,176 to 1. Quite good odds actually.

The FUSO Diamond Contest 2017/2018 was open to FUSO owners who registered their FUSO commercial vehicles between 1 January 2017 and 31 December 2017. Since its inception in 2006, MBM CV has received more than 10,000 entries for the FUSO Diamond Contest. Wait for the next one folks. It should be announced for 2019/2020. Fingers crossed.
