A joint-venture between Malaysian and Japanese companies, Perodua quickly became renowned for making high-quality, fuel-efficient, practical, reliable and affordable cars.
Many models have been Malaysian favourites. These include the Kancil, Kelisa, Viva, Axia, Bezza, Alza and of course the Myvi, which has been the nation’s best-selling car for nearly a decade with over a million produced.
Based in Sungai Choh, Rawang, Perodua’s 520-acre HQ comprises a corporate building, two vehicle manufacturing plants, R&D facilities, a test track, a parts warehouse, training facilities, a mosque and a child care centre. Additionally, the company has engine and transmission manufacturing facilities in Sendayan, Negeri Sembilan.
Currently, Perodua has been stepping up its indigenous design, innovation and localisation efforts. Besides having 90% of its parts locally sourced, the new Myvi has an upper body that is completely the work of local talent, as well as locally-developed features to better suit the Malaysian market.
Perodua benefits from adopting many Japanese work ethics and practices including Training Dojos, Kaizen, Gemba and “Just-in-Time”, towards a more efficient and disciplined work environment. At the same time, Perodua is first and foremost proudly Malaysian in identity, incorporating values such as humility, harmony and cultural tolerance in its workplace.
Perodua is a company that always puts people first, whether it be our customers or employees. We believe in constantly motivating and developing our workforce through various training programmes and courses. Staff performance is rewarded via constant reviewing and upgrading of benefits, and staff who have displayed potential will be open to many opportunities for career advancement.
Perodua is in the midst of a transformation roadmap that is seeing the modernisation of its plant and a renewed emphasis on customer satisfaction, towards its goal of becoming a world-class automotive company.
