18 years old, wholly owned subsidiary of DRB-Hicom,  PUSPAKOM took one step forward into CSR to ensure that its employees are healthy to perform at its best when Puspakom appointed world's oldest, 21 years old military-inspired group outdoor personal training, the Chief's Original Bootcamp (COBC).

Puspakom is Malaysia's only  concessionaire appointed by the Malaysian government to undertake all mandatory inspections for commercial and public vehicles, as well as private vehicles for hire-purchase financing, ownership transfer and insurance purposes. With more than 1,300 employees performing more than 3 million vehicle inspections annually, their employee's fitness and health became one of the group's driving factor to achieve its target and performances.

Yesterday, 12 October 2012 was the first COBC session held at Wisma DRB-Hicom, Glenmarie. We are pleased and proud to be appointed by Puspakom and look forward to serving all members of DRB-Hicom group. 

The Chief's Original Bootcamp  was represented by 3 Reds, 3 Blues and 1 err.. long sleeves whom rushed out from a meeting to meet with Puspakom. To show COBC's seriousness in our services, both Dr Malek Aziz and Armin Baniaz Pahamin being the owners of COBC Malaysia left our appointments early to ensure everything was perfect. The platoon commander for Puspakom was Sarge (COBC) Tom and assisted by Sarge (COBC) Nawal and Corporal (COBC) Wan. The support in Blue were COBC co-founder Dr Malek Aziz, Farhanah Bamadhaj and Rose Emini Pahamin. I had to leave to attend to another appointment.

Dato Sri Khamil had also met Proton Vendors Association and is scheduled to meet Proton workers union too.

Siaw (Vice President), Malkeet Singh (Secretary-General), Dato Yahya Jaafar (Hon. Treasurer), Mohd Nor Azam (Asst. Secretary-General) and Tuan Haji Aref Borhan ( Chairman, Service Sub-Committee).

Kuala Lumpur. "Proton Edar Dealers Association Malaysia (PEDA) extend our network's support to DRB-HICOM  and congratulate the conglomerate for winning the bid to acquire Khazanah Nasional's 42.7% stake in PROTON Holdings", said President Armin Baniaz Pahamin

The dealer's network look forward to working closer with the new owner and understand the need for PROTON to have fresh capital injection to be competitive especially nearing the liberalization of auto market. Unlike our rival, whose vehicle make and model has achieved its economics of scale in its homeland abroad before being introduced in Malaysia, PROTON's bread-winner is in our homeland Malaysia. PROTON's volume with its own-born model in Malaysia's small population could not attained a sizable economies of scale.

1. DRB_HICOM as a new owner with a stronger cashflow would enable PROTON to introduce newer models more regularly and to be more aggressive in export. PROTON current financial capability can only allow one model to be introduced annually and once introduced, the model stayed in the market longer than that of the competitor to re-gained its return on investment.
