The Proton dealer network is again 35 following the appointment of six new dealers across the country in the past month, while the company has accepted applications from a number of other dealers ahead of the launch in October of a new entry level car that promises to be Australia's lowest priced four door sedan.
"The company is in close discussion with another 11 dealers and I am confident we will appoint most of these outlets in the next few months, realising our goal of expanding our network to around 50 by the end of 2009," he said.
"We deliberately shed under-performing dealers over the past few months to make way for high calibre operations and I feel certain we now have a much stronger, more active and capable network in key markets around the country.
"In Queensland we have appointed Reef City Motors in the booming town of Gladstone as well as Ian Boetcher Motors in Bundamba near Brisbane, strengthening our representation in our best performing state," said Billy Falconer.
"We have signed on Hunter Proton in Cessnock near Newcastle and Cowra Motors in the central west of NSW to expand our operations in the Premier State while we have added a new Adelaide metropolitan dealer with Newspot Proton opening for business in Hampstead Gardens," he added.
Proton was established in 1983, and is Malaysia's largest manufacturer of automobiles. With operations in key markets including the UK, Western Europe, the Middle East and across South-East Asia and Australasia, Proton produces a range of cars from versatile and reliable four-door family sedans to sporty three-door hatchbacks and utilities, and is also the parent company of world-renowned sports car maker, Lotus.
