Cycle & Carriage, one of the dealer groups for Mercedes-Benz in Malaysia, announced its effort to support the national vaccination initiative by offering COVID-19 vaccinations to employees across all its branches nationwide. This action outlines Cycle & Carriage’s commitment to protect the health, safety and well-being of its employees, customers and communities that it serves.
“We are proud to play a part in ensuring the safety of our workplaces and our employees with this COVID-19 vaccination drive. As members of the community, Cycle & Carriage believes that we have a part to play in taking on some of the pandemic’s most significant battles. From the outset of the pandemic, we have worked hard to put the health and safety of our employees and customers first. The quicker we achieve high vaccination rates, the sooner our communities and economies can start to rebuild,” said Wilfrid Foo, CEO of Cycle & Carriage.
Cycle & Carriage, with an extensive network of 11 Mercedes-Benz Autohauses across key economic centres in Peninsula Malaysia, has over 800 employees. The company is one of the first few companies in the automotive industry in Malaysia to commit to the vaccination programme en masse. The goal is to vaccinate as many employees as possible from management to service personnel and technicians, in order to serve its customers and community in a safe environment.
All costs of vaccination will be borne by the company, and employees who have opted for the vaccination will receive their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine as early as the third week of July 2021.
