The Kedah, Malaysia plant is Porsche’s first assembly facility outside of Europe

Porsche has always been known for German engineering, built in Europe for the world. Yet now, the first Porsche assembly plant outside of Europe has been inaugurated in Kulim in the Malaysian state of Kedah.

A joint venture between Porsche AG and Sime Darby, the new Porsche plant is meant not only to connect dreams of bringing the iconic sports car brand closer to Malaysians and the aSEAN region  but to likewise unlock the potential of the locals who will be ensuring the high standards of engineering and quality are met. 

The state-of-the-art manufacturing plant will assemble the Malaysian made Cayenne that has more than a few exclusive specifications and options specific to the Malaysian market. The assembly process itself meets the same high standards set by Porsche in all its manufacturing plants throughout the world. Moreover, the assembly plant is a sustainable one, utilizing solar panels on the roof and rainwater harvesters to minimize water waste.

By the same token, the plant will be run by a 100 percent Malaysian workforce,  helping unlock the  locals’ potential and talent. Each member of the team has been trained by Porsche to ensure only the highest standards are met.

With this, Malaysians and the rest of the ASEAN region will come one step closer to attaining their dreams of attaining and experiencing the iconic Porsche badge.
